Wanderlust: Sweden Ain’t All IKEA You Know

As much as I love dealing in, and talking about, San Francisco real estate (because it is really THAT cool), I’ve been known to get a serious case of wanderlust from time. What better way to cure it than going walkabout. Last week was Los Angeles modern, yesterday a glimpse of real estate up Tahoe way, today…Stockholm, Sweden!
In case you’re unable to read Swedish (like me), that’s four bedrooms, three bathrooms, 290 square meters, outdoor space galore, modern kitchen, and all can be yours for a starting bid of 8,900,000 Krona. Don’t have Krona in your pocket, I’m sure they’d take $1,429,562.50 USD too. In fact, I know they would, because the owners will hopefully be putting that cash right here in San Francisco real estate. I just gotta convince them East Bay is inferior to San Francisco, but that shouldn’t be too difficult, San Francisco is where it’s at. Right?

[Update: Just got word two bids are in and the price is pushing north of 9,400,000 Krona. Yes, they use a bidding system in Sweden, and they share the prices being bid with the other side. Imagine that. If only SF were so smart. This whole, “you can’t shop an offer” thing is stupid. If you have a bid, why not tell the other side the price. Sorry…tangent.]
