$715,000 Over Asking For Central Sunset Home With Awesome Lime Green Kitchen

Pricing low debate aside, if you have a house (we’ll call it a “light fixer”) that sells for $1221 per square foot in an area of town that may not have been on everyone’s radar in the past, it’s safe to say demand for single family homes is strong…especially homes that give buyers an opportunity to add their personal touch.

Maybe it’s the lime green green kitchen, maybe it’s the pink bedrooms, or maybe it’s the solid bones and beautiful Parquet wood floors that draw you in. Regardless, once you’re sucked in, if you want to win, get ready to compete and go big. Congrats to the buyer of 1339 21st Ave, a two bedroom, one and a quarter bath home in the Central Sunset that listed for $995,000 and just closed for a staggering $1,710,000 to earn the top spot on this week’s list of top 10 Overbids.

Although I haven’t posted this top 10 list in a while (hopefully you’re tracking The Goods on your own), it’s once again the Avenues FTW:

SOLD | 321 Frederick | $1,850,000 | Cole Valley

Congratulations to my buyers and sellers of this wonderful top floor, three bedroom, two bathroom view condominium in prime Cole Valley.

Listed quietly off market (hence no interior pics) in the middle of an epic March storm cycle (If you follow this blog, you know I can’t think straight when the snow is falling!), shown to two buyers, and quickly snagged and secured by one of them, this stunner of a home that checks all the boxes, including amazing views to Sutro Forest, and down into Cole Valley, ultimately sold for $1,850,000.

As is the case with every transaction I do in and around Cole Valley (I do many) it pays to get on my radar, and stay on my radar. These buyers met me at my 1651 Page St listing, which I knew would go slightly out of their range, and told me what they were looking to get. I took mental inventory of what they wanted, set them up on a flurry of properties to see and got them on the track to market education, all the while knowing I might get 321 Frederick listed and it’d be perfect for them. Shortly thereafter, I locked down the listing on Frederick, listened to the sellers’ wants and needs to get the sale done, and started planning the potential marketing and sale timeline. After discussing all of the options, weighing recent sales, Facetimes and Skypes to foreign lands, I showed 321 Frederick to the buyers, and it was a done deal. Love at first sight.

I’m super happy for everyone involved and ready to help more of you Cole Valley residents come up with your ideal solution to selling or buying property in your tight-knit community.

Congratulations to everyone involved.

Keep an eye on this site for 1649 Page, and 1826 Page that are both “Coming Soon”.

SOLD | 784 48th Ave | $1,300,000 … and the Perfect Storm

Every so often we get, in San Francisco real estate, what I call “the Perfect Storm”…that is a property that hits the MLS, listed by an out of town agent, no staging, amateur photos, and no offer date. It’s on these listings you have to pounce, submit an offer immediately, and get in contract. I was lucky enough to do it a while back on 22nd Ave, and lucky again to get my clients in contract and closed on their first home at 784 48th Ave in the oh-so popular Outer Richmond.

Anytime you can get in contract with hordes of buyers lurking around every corner it’s a win, and when you get a property at a reasonable price, it’s a double win. It just takes agent/client teamwork, a lightning quick process, and smiles…lots of smiles.

Congratulations to everyone involved. What a smooth transaction and great home.
