This property was so run down that there was yellow tape everywhere. Visitors literally couldn’t walk in more than one area due to the fact that they would fall into the sub-basement, or worse. Yet it sold for 25K over asking, for $1.02M. On the one hand it’s understandable. It’s Noe Valley and a large lot. On the other hand, it is not. It’s mid-summer 2008 and this isn’t supposed to be happening, especially on previously less desirable streets such as Clipper. Your thoughts?
