Tenth Avenue Opulence For $277,000 Less. Who Wants To Has It?

[Editor’s Note: It is recommended you watch the video first.] There is a lot to love about this listing at 261 10th Ave, especially “savings the money”, but I’m not quite sure what’s to love more: Is it the insanely awesome gold coverlet accented by leopard print throw pillows and zebra print chair? Is it […]

BFD Price Reductions

A post wherin I look at price reductions that seem to be pointless. 1. Courtesy of SF Schtuff, 1001 California St., #3 is a super lux condo in the old Hitchcockian San Francisco splendor. (MLS gallery offers house porn to die for, here.) The original price here was $7,250,000. Now it’s $6,950,000. Indeed, one could argue […]

2185 Bush #307 At The Amelia Price Reduced (almost) $100,000!

Shameless plug is the name of the game here. Moments ago we chopped the price of 2185 Bush #307 from $869,000 (previously $899,000) down to $799,999. Are you kidding! This is a 3 bed, 2 bath, 1290 square foot condo with high ceilings, wood burning fireplace, patio, and so much more in one of the […]

Price Chopping “Curbed SF” Style

Sorry dear friends over at Curbed SF, but we’re using your line. We have to, because what better way to announce prices are getting chopped on some of our listings? The first to chop is 2185 Bush #307: We started out at $899,000 (now $869,000), interest was high, but the market has spoken. It’s time […]

Reduction Redux, in which I pick up the Gauntlet

When I posted Reduction Ad Nauseum,  I really just wanted a read on how the educated real estate populace explains and/or reacts to listings that have suffered not one, not two, but three or more price cuts. Still, one commenter Noe Guy said: “Interesting observations but I wouldn’t put too much stock in them. First, you      […]

Reduction, Ad Nauseum

I’m not a Realtor, so I’ll tell something I’m more qualified to comment on: buyers’ perspectives. For instance, I can tell you how buyers looks at a property that’s been reduced more than twice. We feel sorry for them. They’re like awkward teenage boys at their first dance, pretending to be terribly busy with their shoe laces […]

New Developments Face a New Reality in SF

  I’ve heard from multiple sources that SF real estate is, for the most part, immune to the havoc wreaked on other parts of the US. But sales at our most recent condo complexes show that happy-smile-don’t-worry line of rhetoric is about as reliable as the clown’s was in Poltergeist (Happy Halloween!).     Socketsite […]
