If You Sold Your Home For $1,355,000 Over Asking, Where Would You Go? What Would You Buy?

Just in time for the weekend.

It was actually a Mission District condo that claimed the top spot on the Top 10 Overbid List (see below) at damn near 52% over asking (we calculate via percentage not $$), but have a look at 268 Wawona in West Portal

Listed at $2,895,000, barely a minute on the market and not one, but two pre-emptive offers (offers submitted prior to the offer date in an effort to knock the seller’s socks off), one of which stuck at a whopping $1,355,000 over the list price (that’s $4,250,000 in case your jaw hitting the floor just caused your brain to temporarily fail you at math). I mean…

This is what you can get in Salt Lake City for $1,355,000 (I actually know the owners of the home to the left…talk about having the coolest neighbors evah!)

And this is what $4,200,000 might get you in Tahoe (should you be so inclined to move up there with your West Portal windfall:

If that doesn’t get you thinking about wandering, I don’t know what will. As always, I’m here to help you sell your San Francisco place to send you on your way to those greener pastures. Just give me a shout, and I’ll make your “I’m leaving San Francisco” dream a reality.

I leave the top 10 Overbids for you to draw your own conclusions and discuss amongst yourselves over an icy cold beverage (if you’re anywhere outside of SF) and perhaps an Irish Coffee if you’re still in town.
