Coming Soon! And, Coming Later!


Realtor Kevin Gueco writes a very sunny review for the coming soon Mosiaica 601 condo project (pictured above) in his SFNewDevelopments blog. There’s definitely some room for pleasant surprise in the announced price  (pleasant to me, anyway, since I selfishly find all condos I cannot afford to be unpleasant): “Mosaica 601 announced last week that … Continue reading Coming Soon!

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 … Continue reading New Developments Face a New Reality in SF

When you look at this chart/map, what do you see?


I feel like this is a bit of a litmus test. I was on another blog and a poster actually used this map to back up a point made about neighborhoods north of California st. showing signs of weakness. I was like, huh? This map? Aren’t all the areas north of California YELLOW? (Yellow shows … Continue reading When you look at this chart/map, what do you see?

Price it (real, real) low, and away we go …..(251 Arkansas)


I knew this one would go superfast. You have to wonder if it wouldn’t have gone almost as fast if it were priced at 850K, tho. Anyway, anyone else see this property? It got into contract instantly. A two car garage, north slope Potrero Hill, with a 25 X 100 foot lot, for 679? Simply … Continue reading Price it (real, real) low, and away we go …..(251 Arkansas)

Weekly Fluj: Inventory, is there a lot of it?


Lots of people yapping on and on about how San Francisco listing inventory is through the roof, sales volume is in the toilet, and both median and average home prices have plummeted, but the Fluj says: Seemingly the perception is that there is a lot of inventory, but is there, really? And as for prices, … Continue reading Weekly Fluj: Inventory, is there a lot of it?

Isolated Panic amongst some San Francisco Realtors, or something larger?


Recently, we’ve been contacted by more than a dozen Realtors asking if we could “plug” their listings. Typically, this is not something we do as it defeats the purpose, honesty, and transparency of this blog, but we got to thinking…why not? We could make a little $$ from it, and help get the word out … Continue reading Isolated Panic amongst some San Francisco Realtors, or something larger?
