For a little insight as to how it played out: We were basing our list price, and ballpark sales price, on a recent … Continue reading Sold | 973a 14th Street | Duboce Triangle | $1,850,000
Even during a typically quiet Summer market, we got this done, and we got it done right. Congratulations to everyone involved. What a great house, and thank you to my client for this great testimonial.

Holy moly did this one go great, or what!? Top floor 1 bed, 1 bath condo with its own private deeded garage in an A+ Marina District location.

Because one offer isn’t enough, 135 Parnassus (a teeny – tiny 1192 sqft, 2 bed, 1 bath condo) in the heart center of Cole Valley, just blew the roof off of reality. Sure, priced crazy low at $799,000 (actually, I would have priced it similarly because it did have some issues), but still…30 offers? Come … Continue reading Cole Valley Property Gets 30 Offers
We accepted offers on Monday, we closed yesterday…that’s a three day close. Remarkable, to say the least. Congratulations to my clients, and thank you all for an incredibly smooth transaction. I wish they all went like this. Listed $1,295,000, SOLD $1,500,000. Property details below: Located on an elegant street in San Francisco’s Buena Vista Park … Continue reading SOLD (In 3 Days) | 62 Buena Vista Terrace
This is for those of you that just fought your way into contract, closed, and are now wondering, “Will I ever make my money back?” A good friend and colleague of mine recently (just this March) represented her buyers in the purchase of this awesome top floor penthouse at 2200 Market #502. They closed for … Continue reading 30 Days Later, Property Resells For $101,000 More
Somebody has certainly turned the tap on with regards to San Francisco real estate. Case in point (like we need to see more), 1998 Broadway #1007. I just called on this Pacific Heights property to get an appointment for a client to take a look at it next Tuesday. How foolish of me to think … Continue reading It Is Certainly Brisk Out, And We’re Not Talking Weather
Another week, another issue of sfnewsletter sent. All kinds of great market info and real estate p*rn for you to peruse. Including many off market opportunities I’ve already mentioned here. Have a great weekend! –Latest issue of sfnewsletter/MarketTracker
I’ve often said, if you can’t say it better yourself, just plagiarize. Or something like that. ;-) Even if it means sharing information from a “competing” brokerage. Mark McLaughlin is the CEO of local real estate company Pacific Union. His recent article pretty much sums up my thoughts exactly. Especially, if you live in Cole … Continue reading The Best Time To Sell Since San Francisco Real Estate Went Bust…Is Now
Hi all! I just wanted to give a little update to you from my world of San Francisco real estate. In my humble opinion, the market is extremely hot for the right properties. On Friday I wrote four separate offers (five if you count that one property is two condos), in four entirely different neighborhoods, … Continue reading Four Buyers In Four Days…And 121 Beulah, How Did It End?
–118 Vernon, 2 bed, 1 bath, SFR, $399,000
True, the market tanked. True, average home prices have come down in San Francisco. True, even A+ areas like Noe Valley and Pacific Heights have felt the pinch. False, it is death doom and destruction everywhere. Case in point, 394 Frederick St @ Belvedere in Cole Valley, is an awesome 4 bed, 4 bath, 3173 … Continue reading 394 Frederick, Before, After, Here And Gone (In Contract After 7 Days): $2,399,000
The story for 214 Dorland is not something you’d expect to hear in this market. More than 20 disclosure packages were handed out, an offer date was set (on April Fool’s Day no less), and contrary to what most would think, the offers came streaming in…12 of them to be exact. To counter those that … Continue reading 12 Offers On One Property In This Market?
Although MLS still reflects the Lake District condominium at 64 7th Ave (3 bed, 2.5 bath, 1 pk, $1,535,000) as “active”, sources close to the sale are telling us it is in contact after a short five days on the market. Call it luck, call it buyers that don’t read the newspapers (bless them), or … Continue reading Ripple In Still Waters, Lake District Condo Moves Fast (64 7th Ave)
[Update 10/20/08: Sold, $1,725,000] On the other side of the equation, let’s take a look at 733 Front #605. One of the first resales at this conversion building down in the Financial District, #605 was sold through the sales office for $1,600,000 only about three months ago. The unit directly below it #505 was sold … Continue reading Quick Flip at 733 Front Street
