As you know, I put a lot of attention on the Overbids, as they are truly jaw dropping and it’s amazing they just keep happening all over the City for the better part of a decade. But something that often goes under the radar is a little something I used to call Stalefish, but now … Continue reading Some Epic San Francisco Homes Still Without Buyers
Who came down with a heavy case of the Mondays…and Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays? I did. Right here. I know you all want the great real estate porn that got you on this site in the first place, but I’ve been busy, so I figured I’d make your life, and my life, easier…here you … Continue reading Real Estate Porn For The People…
There is a little something in our market, of which many buyers are not aware, and many agents overlook. I have long referred to them as “Stalefish“, but others refer to them as “buying opportunity” or “still available property”, or what we named (on theGoods) as the “30+ Club”. What are these, you ask? They … Continue reading Stalefish: You Won’t Believe Your Eyes

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 … Continue reading Reduction, Ad Nauseum
Recently, we’ve been contacted by more than a dozen Realtors asking if we could “plug” their listings.

Our sense is these are available at or below asking and are both strong investment opportunities. 3479 Sacramento St – List … Continue reading Investor Alley

Could somebody please help this property sell?
