The House Where Craigslist Was Born Finally Found A Buyer

The House Where Craigslist Was Born Finally Found A Buyer

What do you do in San Francisco when it takes you more than two weeks to get a property sold? A property that was featured on multiple media outlets for the fact it was the place where Craig Newmark founded that little website called Craigslist? You adjust, just like we did here.
After a couple weeks on the market without any real bites (despite at least 150 people walking through the door on the first weekend of Open Houses), and not having been painted or staged, the feeling was brewing inside we needed to shift our focus. Something wasn’t right. Sure, we were in the thick of the Summer doldrums, but this was a perfectly located charming Cole Valley condominium that checked all the boxes…except one…a forever dedicated parking spot. That was the deal killer.
Alas, we pulled this baby off the market for a couple weeks, painted critical rooms, changed some lighting, staged, and bammo! Sold to a wonderful person who is going to enjoy it for many years to come, and doesn’t have a car.
Thanks to my sellers for their incredible patience, and thanks to the buyer for coming forward with an excellent offer.
This property sold for $1,480,000.

The property so many seek is finally available, and it couldn’t be more supremely located…Situated in the heart-center of Cole Valley, this circa 1907 ground floor condominium will delight from the moment you walk in the door.

[Update: This was found within the walls…]
This wonderful home features three bedrooms, one remodeled bathroom, a true chef’s kitchen with Blue Star range (because not all chefs have massive kitchens, but all chefs have the best of the best stoves), hard and softwood floors from generations past, two decorative fireplaces, direct access to common area deck and shared yard, eastern exposure for amazing morning light, washer & dryer, and easy access to public transportation, Sutro Forest & Tank Hill hiking trails, Golden Gate Park, the N-Judah line, UCSF, the Castro, and USF to name a few.

    Large houses with multiple floors are prone to many types of safety issues like radon and mold infestation, it is better to have a timely home inspection in that case.
