We can talk about under-pricing all day long, but the fact is buyers keep taking prices higher and higher, and the last time I checked, inventory remains crazy low. Open house traffic to pretty much any single family home in the city remains brisk (borderline mob scene), and condos in great locations are just about … Continue reading Maximum Overbid of the Week | West Portal 2 Bed Gets 42% Above Asking

Top 10 Overbids for … Continue reading $1.6 to $2.2 – $1.2 to $1.6 – $1.6 to $2.3…San Francisco Overbids Continue With No End In Sight
The San Francisco housing market continues to heat up, as evidenced by the increasing sale prices of homes in the city. Compared to one year ago, the median price for a single-family home rose by 10.6 percent to $785,000. And, with a limited supply of homes for sale, the city has remained a seller’s market, … Continue reading San Francisco Housing Market Continues to Strengthen
I’m keeping up with my New Year’s resolution to ask clients for testimonials, and I’m thrilled at how willing you all are to share! I really, really appreciate it, and I enjoy working with all of you. We were relatively new to the Bay Area and had been conducting a very haphazard and ineffective home … Continue reading West Portal Buyers Find Happiness With Me On Their Side
Hi all! I just wanted to give a little update to you from my world of San Francisco real estate. In my humble opinion, the market is extremely hot for the right properties. On Friday I wrote four separate offers (five if you count that one property is two condos), in four entirely different neighborhoods, … Continue reading Four Buyers In Four Days…And 121 Beulah, How Did It End?
What is it exactly that makes that room a bedroom? The question has come across my email enough, and actually I think I even posted on it at some point. Well, it’s resurfaced and maybe time to hash it out, as the opinions on what makes a room a bedroom are anything but concrete. The … Continue reading What Makes A Room A Bedroom?
Way, way back, we looked at the then just starting Ardenwood luxury home project. We all speculated on price (around $2 mil, was the consensus) and rapidity with which they would sell. Many people also complained that a set of less than ten luxury homes was not the best use of the lot, … Continue reading Arden Wood (Mostly) All Grown Up
Some time ago, I noted the construction in West Portal and asked around the Front Steps for the scoop. Those folks on the steps always know a lot, and more importantly, they like to argue. We had ideas that the construction would yield five- no, six- no, seven- no, eight homes. They were to be made of … Continue reading The Scoop: Seven Arden Estates Have Risen from the Earth
Just curious to see how up on your real estate all y’all are. Take a look at 145 Madrone, a 3 bed, 1 bath, 1920’s home in prime West Portal, asking $849,000 (offer date next Monday). By all accounts, the one single photo doesn’t do this property justice. (Come on fellow Realtors! Even if it’s … Continue reading West Portal Wreck, What’s It Gonna Take? (145 Madrone)
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! And, Coming Later!
We spotted this listing at 130 Granville in West Portal while doing the tour de San Francisco (real estate) for sfnewsletter, and thought we’d dedicate a post to it here (being that we’re fans of mid-century modern). A mid-century home (built in 1955), and the only active listing in West Portal at the moment, it … Continue reading West Portal Mid Century (130 Granville)
