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.

Victorian details abound including a picturesque stained glass skylight, soaring ceilings, original dark wood floors, crown moldings, wainscoting, two working fireplaces, and large functioning pocket doors. The front windows provide a great view of Sutro Tower. This unit has been continually updated since the early 1900s with 2 substantial skylights in the eat-in kitchen, office/bonus room in the back, modern bathrooms, updated appliances, brand new in-unit Washer & Dryer, Monkeybrains & cable ready Internet, beautiful shared courtyard, parking for one car, substantial garage storage including a storage room w/lock.

This central location is across the street from The Park Branch Public Library, 1 block from shops on Haight Street and the Panhandle, 2 blocks from Whole Foods & the entrance to Golden Gate Park. Easy commute anywhere in SF: North, West, East, and South, walk to Cole Valley, tech shuttle stops, St. Mary’s / Dignity Medical Center, UCSF Parnassus and a multitude of dining and shopping options. While the official “Walk Score” is 97 it feels more like 99! As Page Street is one of SF’s official bike routes, 1826 Page street has a “Bike Score” of 98.

When you own a Victorian like this you’ll enjoy the benefits of a modern space while appreciating the quality workmanship, design, charm, and engineering of an historic San Francisco Victorian.

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”.

Tight Inventory, Top 10 Overbids, and 7 Off Market Listings

Currently, there are exactly 167 Single Family Homes for sale in the entire city of San Francisco…from the Marina District down to Visitacion Valley. Of those, only 42 hit the market in the last week, and some have actually been on the market more than 30 days (I call them Stalefish, and that’s where you might – just might – find a “deal”). But mostly, we’re a city still starving for single family homes, and they are literally flying off the shelf. Condos in desirable areas are about the same, but I’m not going there right now.

What does this mean? It means competition is fierce, multiple offers are commonplace, and Overbidding is still not anywhere near done. Have a look at this week’s top 10 Overbids. Keep in mind, this is only the top 10, if you want to see more, follow this link to more recent sales.

945 Corbett Avenue 1/1.00/107 7 $699,000 $975,000 39.48%

All of this said, if you’re losing out, I have several listings coming to market, and a couple we’ll sell off market:
Single Family home on Cabrillo at 36th
Single Family home on 46th at Balboa with Ocean Views
Single Family home near Alta Mar in Sutro Heights with Ocean Views
Condo near the Great Highway with Ocean Views
Condo on Frederick in Cole Valley with Valley views
Condo on Page near Upper Haight
Empty lot in Russian Hill ready to build

So…I’ll do my part to get some inventory for you, but in the meantime marvel at those Overbids, have a good weekend, and enjoy this Summer weather!

Happy Aloha Friday
