Five Days Later And $361,000 Over, 849 44th Ave Sets New Price Per Square Foot Record In Outer Richmond
To say we knocked it out of the park on this wonderful Outer Richmond residence, like I did with 652 44th Ave would be an understatement…
Listed on a Friday morning, I got a call from an agent shortly thereafter asking if he could get his client in…so I obviously obliged. That day, same agent asked if they could write an offer now to “take it off the table”. The next day, three other buyers asked the same. The sellers and I respectfully declined all of the pre-emptive attempts, and asked the buyers to wait until our offer day 10 days later. Wait they did. After getting roughly 200 people through the door, we got nine offers, and two others that said they’d like to write at $1,250,000, so without actually saying it, I said it, “Don’t waste your time.”
After a slew of phone calls and negotiations, buyer #1..the same person that was the first person to see it, came up to where they needed to be, upped their offer to $1,410,000 and we closed 5 days later. (As a side note, it is often the first person to see a place that is the winner…keep that in mind.)
There you have it. Congratulations to buyers and sellers, and the Outer Richmond for being one of the hottest neighborhoods in all of San Francisco, at the moment. In case you’re wondering, that’s $1146 per square foot for the Outer Richmond.
To give you a little more indication of our market, as crazy as this Overbid was, it’s only #18 on the Top 20 Overbids!
From the original post:
Beautifully maintained, and recently remodeled Outer Richmond single family residence in the same family for almost 60 years. Pride of ownership extends generations back in this 1950s home. From the beautifully preserved original wood floors, to the wood burning fireplace, and incredibly large and well-maintained yard (with deck off the main living area), this three bedroom, one bath home with a large garage is ideal for those seeking a wonderful single family home in one of San Francisco’s hottest neighborhoods.
Having recently undergone a renovation to the kitchen adding marble countertops, wood floors, new cabinetry, new stainless appliances, enlarging windows and flooding the area with light, cooking and entertaining will delight even the most discerning chef in the family. Also remodeled down to the studs, the bathroom with gorgeous floor and wall tiling, a large skylight, new tub, vanity, and toilet. Electrical systems have been updated, all work has been performed with permits, and pest/contractor reports are clean and on file.
Situated on a 3,598 square foot lot with a 30 foot frontage, and on a flat street with wide sidewalks and no major intersections on either end, this home is ideally located, and has expansion potential into the large garage and outdoor area underneath the rear bedroom.
