To say we knocked it out of the park on this sale would be an understatement. As much as I love doing a stellar job for the sellers I represent, it honestly pains me when we set a new high water mark for San Francisco real estate sales, because it makes it that much harder for the next buyers out there trying to buy the next property that comes along.
Listed at $589,000, we received 8 offers, 3 of which were over $800,000, and we just closed yesterday for $815,000. That’s $226,000 over asking for a condo in the Outer Sunset. Put another way, 38.37% over list price. When we had received an offer at $750,000, we thought that was going to be the best. Alas, it was not. We could have actually sold this property an hour after it hit MLS, but we declined the offer, and I pushed for an offer date. It paid dividends. The sellers are thrilled, as are the winning buyers, the the SF-Marin Food Bank will be getting a check from me shortly, and I got a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label out of this deal. Suuuweet! Thanks John!
This fabulous top floor condominium in the oh-so popular Outer Sunset is one block from the Ocean, two blocks from Judah street shops/restaurants/N-Judah, and a few blocks from Golden Gate Park. This is an outdoor lover’s dream. The home features an open floor plan with living/dining area including a wood burning fireplace, partial views to the Ocean, kitchen with bar counter opening to dining area, in unit W&D, Master Bedroom with ensuite Bathroom, Central Vacuum, SxS parking, TONS of extra storage, and shared yard. Property was recently painted, has a new fence, and new carpet in common area. It’s an amazing property and we marketed it at an amazing price, not really knowing where it would sell.
If you have a property in San Francisco, and you’d like me to help you sell it, I have a great team and we’ll get it done just like we did on this, and many of the other transactions I’ve orchestrated in and around San Francisco.
