Where readers ask and we (the community) try to answer:
I am considering buying a condo in the Noe Valley/Mission Dolores (around 21st and Church) area and I am trying to understand what the going rate for a garage is in this area. I have the option to purchase a space with the condo. I’ve heard between $75-100k. Is this accurate?
C, It depends largely on what type of space you get. Something like the above stacked parking might drop the cost a little, but as we know these brilliant uses of space are few and far between in San Francisco (we’re ahead of the curve, but still a couple hundred years behind Europe), we’ll assume it’s a space with either tandem or individual parking. Our estimate is that it would be closer to the $75k range rather than the $100k, but wonder if some readers might be able to shed some light on the matter as well.
[Editor’s note and update: The cost for a garage is entirely different than the cost to purchase a single parking space. Our estimate is assuming you’re talking about one space, not an entire garage.]
