You thought I was going to let you finish out the year without one final Overbid stunner, didn’t you? I actually tried, but then it didn’t snow (Supreme Leader says it’s cold, so Global Warming is not a real thing), so I was left with a choice of skiing man-made ice, or sit down and share these jaw-dropping overbids with you. I chose the latter, if that tells you anything about the quality of skiing up around Tahoe these days. Pray for snow!

Anyhow…It’s important to note, many of these homes hit the market at what is traditionally the slowest time of year for San Francisco real estate, the Holidays, yet still had enough interest to drive the price to the moon. Case in point, the #1 Overbid at 1623 43rd Ave, listing for $998,000 (some would argue a bit low), but selling for a staggering $1,680,000! Forget about the overbid amount, and focus on the final sales price…that’s damn near $1.7M for a basic Outer Sunset home…the Sunset…the place nobody ever wanted to be, and now it’s the hottest neighborhood in the city. Maybe all these hipster surfers are on to something. ;-)

So you’re thinking this property is just a one-off…not so. Look at the #2 Overbid at 840 Kansas, a fixer in Potrero Hill selling for $1,629,000…or 49% above their list price.

Before any of you nay-sayers spending too much time “plugged in” to other sites get all bent out of shape about us Realtors constantly touting overbids, stop for a minute and look at the underlying price per square foot on both of those sales $1153/sqft in the Outer Sunset and $1398/sqft in Potrero Hill.

Since this is my last post of 2017, let me dig a little deeper into those numbers for you. My quick calculations and MLS sales search shows in all of 2016, there was exactly one sale in the Outer Sunset over $1.6M, the average sales price was $1,095,578, and the average price per square foot was $801. Fast forward to the same search for 2017, there are seven sales over $1.6M, average sales price is now $1,229,376, and the average price per square foot is now $902. That is just single family home sales for the Outer Sunset. If you want Potrero Hill numbers, you’ll have to contact me. I’m going surfing right now.
