Our readers have been asking in various places about some properties we featured as of late. Since so many have asked so nicely here you go: 3280 22nd St @ Valencia, the “green” building that all the blogs were all hot about and many claiming wouldn’t sell. Guess what? Last week, in the middle of … Continue reading Various Updates (Alhambra, Sea Cliff, 22nd, Sacramento, Douglass, 27th, and more)

Bernal Heights strikes again (145 Coso…$309,000 over)
We’re not making this up, but it might help answer the question, “is Bernal on Fuego or Hielo?” All pricing issues aside, this is a pretty damn good find. Thanks Garrett: 145 Coso, a 3-bed, 2-bath, 13 days on the market and $309,000 above asking, which brings the sales price to $1,408,000 in Bernal. No … Continue reading Bernal Heights strikes again (145 Coso…$309,000 over)
FYI, 289 Marina ($905,000 over asking)
A reader kindly calls out, and we verify: I heard the 289 Marina Blvd. house just sold. Asking $2.795 mil… north of $3 mil…. can anybody verify? I went inside… 1950’s…. needed A LOT of remodelling. [Editor’s note: Correct. Sold for $3.7M. Seven offers.] In the nick of time? Time will tell.
733 Front unit 203 now showing
Not quite sure what their email to me meant by being “one of the first to tour [their] model home” unit #203 (asking $725,000) this Tuesday from 1:30-3:30, since I’d already been in the building sans furniture, but you might like to get in there, so here’s your chance. (I’m assuming the unit is now … Continue reading 733 Front unit 203 now showing
“Seems outrageous to me” (2566 23rd Ave.)
I’m going to keep quiet on this and do as this reader suggests…”let the readers decide”. This listing [2566 23rd Ave.] in SF’s Parkside caught my eye. Bought in March for $1.04M (expensive for Parkside), this home was flipped and is now back on the market for $1.6M! Seems outrageous to me, but let the … Continue reading “Seems outrageous to me” (2566 23rd Ave.)
On the Chocolate Block
Music to our ears, “Custom European refrigerator, custom Italian freezer, high end cupcakes, cheesecakes, and other fine baked goods”. We were sold with the custom fridge and freezer, but throwing in cupcakes and other fine baked goods has put us over the top. Now we just need the time to be there everyday. Belgano Chocalatier, … Continue reading On the Chocolate Block
What’s going on with 1684-1686 19th Ave?
from B.O. with [our comments thrown in] [This is a very good find and a good data point. 19th Ave properties are a tough sell as is, but add to the mix bad pricing, average remodel, out of town agent, and you have a recipe for frustration and not selling. Of course, we don’t know … Continue reading What’s going on with 1684-1686 19th Ave?
Businesses continue to move to San Francisco…and that’s good for housing
A lot of people, when looking at housing prices and the residential market, overlook the commercial market. The two markets are very much intertwined. Businesses need employees, and those employees will need a place to lay their head at night, unless they want to spend their life in hell (traffic) commuting from hell (Stockton comes … Continue reading Businesses continue to move to San Francisco…and that’s good for housing
