Potrero Hill TIC With Big Views And Superb Location Fetches $985,000

I’ve been working on this one for the better part of four months, and our timing and strategy couldn’t have gone more smoothly (despite the market shift). Showing it a few times off market back in July helped us gauge the interest, set a good price, know that we definitely needed to spruce it up a bit, and it allowed the co-owners to establish fractional financing, which definitely helped the sale. After painting, staging, and doing what we do, we were able to get multiple offers, allow the other owners to finish getting fractional financing, and close without a hitch. Hats off to everyone involved, including the lender, the buyer’s agent and her clients, photographer, stager, and of course my client, the seller who couldn’t have been more easy and organized to work with. Congratulations to all!

Situated in the heart-center of Potrero Hill, and just steps to 18th Street shops and restaurants, this top floor two bedroom, one bathroom flat with sweeping Northwest views from Corona Heights to City Hall is not to be missed.

Another amazing off market opportunity for my dear readers…not going on MLS for a few weeks, but definitely available for immediate purchase and viewing.

Like some of my other listings at the moment, this is off market, so we don’t have pictures to share. You gotta see it in person.

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.

SOLD! | Haight Ashbury Victorian | $1,500,000

This is one of those properties that took me for a whirl. We spent 5 weeks of marketing and open houses before getting an offer. I had countless calls and showings, but ultimately the property did not sell where we expected ($1,650,000 or more). In the end, sellers are happy and moving on, and buyers are thrilled. Did the market hiccup right around the time we listed, or did the “Summer Doldrums” come early? Time will tell…stay tuned by following theFrontSteps.

This turn of the century Top Floor two plus bedroom, two bathroom, south facing Victorian Condominium checks all the boxes in the most ideal Upper Haight/Ashbury location.
