Stalefish: San Francisco’s New Delicacy

About once a month, on sfnewsletter, we put out our list of Stalefish Properties for our readers’ delight. Today, we thought we’d share that same list with you, and highlight some of the Stalefish swimming in that Stale Pond.

175 Bright…future not so bright. It is a short sale (possibly the reason it still shows as active) and has spent a meager 291 days on the market. Maybe it’s because it shows “0 bedrooms, 0 baths”. That could be an issue.

So you’ve heard of the “Little Engine That Could”, but what about the Little $6Million Firehouse That Can’t Sell? We have one of those in our Stale Pond too:

Fans of Kirkwood Ski Resort? Well set this Stalefish free and live at 1526 Kirkwood St. in San Francisco…only 322 days on market:

Take your pick at the Ritz, where for a mere $5.4Million you can get an unfinished slice of pie in the sky.

Not a fan of the raw, un-finished Stalefish swimming in the Ritz pond? Fear not, there are plenty of fully cooked units to choose from.

Remember that ultra slick, sleek, can’t do no wrong building called the Brannan? Well, you can get this Stalefish for $1.4M (down from $1.8M), but beware…we see a ghost (likely just an agent skimping on photographer expenses) in that glass!

So what’s the moral of this Stalefish story. Although San Francisco’s Stalefish pond is filling up with properties, there are still many tasty treats to be had and buyers have bargaining chips on their side, so don’t be shy…jump in the Stale Pond with both feet and see what you can find swimming on the bottom!

[Editor’s Note: What is a Stalefish? A property that has been on the market 100+ days (give or take). Nothing more, nothing less.]
