There’s a lot of talk, doubt, and disbelief out there that San Francisco is truly in another state of continual overbids, and properties selling for more than asking with multiple offers. It’s true. It’s true. Sadly (for buyers) it’s true.
As stated multiple times…it’s a good time to sell.
Fellow ski fanatics and adrenaline junkies that live in and around San Francisco, you will not want to miss this movie!
Back in the day it was always Warren Miller that did his thing to get us all amped up for the season, but there have been new players chomping at his heels for years and TGR certainly puts the pressure on Warren big time…I’d even go so far as to say surpasses (easily). The movies are high excitement, well edited, and a damn good time when you watch them on the big screen amongst fellow skiing / boarding fanatics.
What do you do when you are the editor of a popular San Francisco real estate blog and time gets in the way of consistent real estate blogging? You start a new blog. That’s right, I’m trying something new and venturing into the world of Tumblr in an effort to give you more (or less) of the real estate p*rn we all love.
On this new site, I do not plan on sharing stories of overbids, underbids, price wars, market data, market stats, analysis and commentary. I’m going to K.I.S.S (Keep It Simple Stupid) and simply share photos of real estate I find interesting, and encourage all of you to submit your own entries to share with the world of real estate p*rn addicts like ourselves.
Please add the site to your bookmarks, follow it on RSS, and tell all of your friends to do the same. It is a work in progress (I literally set it up 2 days ago), and with your help, it could very well grow to be something cool.
I will continue to do posts here, and very soon (any day) you can expect to see an entirely new and overhauled theFrontSteps.com that will hopefully become a one stop shop for all of your San Francisco real estate information.
Times have changed, information is out there, so we might as well change along with it. Right?
We all know where to go to find new listings, and we all love to check them out, but what all of you homeowners (and buyers) REALLY love is knowing what the home down the street sold for. Right? For that, I bring you the same thing I have for the past 10 years…sfnewsletter and Market Tracker.
The newsletter itself is loaded with good San Francisco market and new happenings information, and the data is top notch. This concept of giving you actual sold data via email was thought of by yours truly, and now every Tom, Dick, and Harry real estate agent across the land is doing the same thing. Just remember…it all started with me, and I will continue to give you the real estate information you need. Just ask.
Have a great weekend, and don’t hesitate to put yourself, your friends, and your family in touch with me for all of your San Francisco real estate selling and buying needs. My recent listings have flown off the shelf, and my strong buyer representation tactics are paying off for the multiple buyers I currently helped get in contract. Fingers crossed it all continues to go well for all of them.
Happy Aloha Friday! No work (for many of you) ’til Monday.
Wowza, wowza, wowza! Those of you that have been reading a long time know that if I go quiet, I’m probably busy. That’s exactly the case. I currently have 4 properties in contract, and two listed as active on MLS (both of which I expect will go into contract soon). Once the dust settles, I’ll have many stories to share, and much more wisdom to impart on all of you. Until then, enjoy the most recent market snapshot I sent on Friday.
It doesn’t get better than this in the Parkside. Twenty one ninety one (2191) 32nd Ave hits MLS tomorrow, and you are all getting the first look. That is unless you’ve been following me on Instagram (@theFrontSteps).
Asking price for this most excellent home in the Avenues of San Francisco will be $785,000, and we’ll be open this Sunday from 2-4pm. Come take a look, and send your friends and family. It goes in MLS tomorrow, but we aren’t opposed to loyal readers getting a jump on the rest of the buying population.
Fabulous Parkside Center Patio Rousseau and Tudor Style home. Meticulously maintained to preserve original details, this home’s main level boasts beautiful hardwood floors, formal entry, formal dining room, and formal living room w/ arched doorways, high exposed beam ceilings, wood burning fireplace, original tile bathroom, updated kitchen, skylights, center patio, balcony, and ocean views. Downstairs is a large 2 car garage w/ additional storage, laundry, and bonus room (media room / master suite) w/ fireplace, hardwood floors, bathroom, and access to quaint backyard. Parkside / Sunset buyers, you will not want to miss this one. It is like nothing you would have recently seen available on our market. No joke.
