Floating Homes: The SF Housing Trend That Never Got Its Due
Don’t call them houseboats; the marine properties you see dotting the docks in Bay Area locales like Sausalito and Mission Creek aren’t boats at all, they’re floating homes. And while many are among the most idyllic and beautiful Bay Area properties, they remain something of an oddity, the sort of thing only a very particular … Continue reading Floating Homes: The SF Housing Trend That Never Got Its Due
How I Closed Two Homes in Marin Last Month and Why It Matters
Marin and San Francisco real estate are similar beasts, except for one glaring caveat: amazing vs mediocre public schools.

If You are in the Market to Buy a Home, the Time is Now
“I believe that beginning with next month’s CPI Report (May 10th) and continuing through the summer, inflation will trend downward, only at a much faster pace. And while it may seem counter-intuitive, if you are in the market to buy a home, we suggest using today’s potentially higher interest rates to negotiate a discount from sellers, and … Continue reading If You are in the Market to Buy a Home, the Time is Now
One Recent Sale | Two Cents on the Market
Check any major media outlet, google any recent article on real estate, specifically the San Francisco real estate market, and you’re undoubtedly going to read nothing but doom and gloom. But the Outer Richmond District of San Francisco “don’t play that” (IYKYK), at least on this house. I won’t lie, I’ve read a lot of … Continue reading One Recent Sale | Two Cents on the Market
“He has just what you need in a San Francisco real estate broker.”
Admittedly, been a bit quiet here on the blog (hey, it happens), but I just got this glowing 5 star review on the new Google business page (done with Yelp), so I just had to share it. Alex is a terrific, and patient, broker. He has just what you need in a San Francisco real … Continue reading “He has just what you need in a San Francisco real estate broker.”
A Photo Tour Of the Great Earthquake
This was the day when, in 1906, San Francisco changed forever, with a 7.8-magnitude earthquake and subsequent fires leveling most of the city. Photography from that grim two-or-three day span presents an almost apocalyptic vision of the past. What we have here (preserved by institutions like the SF Public Library, US Geological Survey, and UC … Continue reading A Photo Tour Of the Great Earthquake
When Is San Francisco’s Real Birthday?
We’re about a month away from the city of San Francisco’s 173rd birthday…depending on who you ask. The modern city of San Francisco first incorporated on April 15, 1850, and thus many locals observe 415 Day. (See what they did there with the area code?) But that is not the only relevant date in city … Continue reading When Is San Francisco’s Real Birthday?

What Exactly Is a Modern House?
Last year marked the 100th anniversary of the Schindler House in LA, often hailed as the “first modern home” in California history. Of course, when critics say “modern,” they’re not referring to just the standard meaning of such terms–obviously a home cannot be both “modern” and a century-old at the same time. So what exactly … Continue reading What Exactly Is a Modern House?
Is San Francisco In a Buyer’s Market?
Asked another way, “Is it a good time to buy a home in San Francisco?” The answer, Yah..always. Forget about interest rates, forget about pending recession, forget about all that. For all practical purposes San Francisco is as close to a buyer’s market it’s been in years, and if you’ve been on the fence about … Continue reading Is San Francisco In a Buyer’s Market?
