“Don’t let the address fool you,” the new ad for 1168 Fell Street warns prospective buyers, assuring everyone that although this three bed, three bath home is technically qualified as a condo, it’s really “fully detached and sits in the rear of the lot.” Does the concept of a detached condo even make sense? Well, … Continue reading What a “Detached” Home Really Means In San Francisco
Just so we’re clear, 850 Steiner Street, the four bed, six bath, dramatically turreted Victorian that went up for sale today asking more than $5.12 million, is not one of the most famous houses in San Francisco. But it is close; as in, geographically, it’s extremely close to the Postcard Row Victorians on Steiner street–just … Continue reading Soaring Alamo Square Victorian Quadruples In Price
Although there are many beautiful and historic styles of homes for sale across San Francisco, the word “Victorian” is so ubiquitous with the city’s image that some homebuyers are scarcely interested in anything less. But although we all know a Vic when we see one, defining them can be deceptively tricky–especially since even the most … Continue reading The Front Steps Guide To San Francisco Victorians
Just a stone’s throw away from Alamo Square’s Painted Ladies (not that it’s advisable to throw stones around such prized assets…), an enormous early 20th century house with a profoundly classy Edwardian exterior at 711 Scott Street just listed, asking an equally high-class $7.85 million. The ad promises six beds, eight baths, and nearly 7,000 … Continue reading “Queen of the Fillmore’s” Scott Street Mansion asks $7.85 Million

It has cooled, but not nearly to the … Continue reading The reasons for my absence: Market Activity on three levels

1110 Fulton, a property we thought would fly, did not. But…it is “pending”. Phew! Saved a little face at least. Rough day.
On April 11th, we told you about 1110 Fulton, and how we liked it, and thought it wouldn’t last at the then reduced price of $975,000 from $989,000. We were wrong. It has been reduced yet again to $959,000, and now…well…it’s on its way to our coveted list of Stalefish ™. A sign of the … Continue reading Fast Track to Staledom ™: an update on 1110 Fulton
