Portola Mid Century Fixer Crowned Maximum Overbid Of The Week

Well this isn’t a location we see too many insane overbids (Portola)…alas 172 University Street did have the keywords “fixer” and “mid-century”, which right there is enough to drum up a frenzy, which it did: list price $799,000 to a sales price of $1,195,000 (that’s $396,000 in case you didn’t do the math).
Personally, I think it was the Saloon Doors that did it…

From $899,000 To $1,400,000 | Holy (160) Santa Marina!

Would you look at that…the #1 Overbid of the week is not a fixer! It’s a been a while for that, but we’re pleased to report the market is strong…very strong for any reasonably good property in any reasonably good neighborhood of San Francisco, which is pretty much everywhere now.

This property (160 Santa Marina) was ridiculously under-priced at $899,000, but still.


It sold half a million dollars over the seller’s asking price and just clinched the top spot on this week’s Top 10 Overbid list by selling for a stunning $1,400,000.

As for the rest, here you go.

Maximum Overbid Of The Week | Welcome To The Mission | Kitchen & Bath Not Included

From the Outer Richmond last week, to the heart of the Sunset this week, the Western edge of San Francisco continues to take top honors on the Overbid list.

Perhaps a little less baffling than last week’s, and also a case of clearly underpricing a property, this little gem at 2724 Ortega just fetched nearly 40% more than asking ($849,000 to $1,135,000). To be perfectly honest, it sold exactly at a reasonable price, so there is not much of a story on this one, buuuttt…

Have a look at 1315 Minna, which took second fiddle, in the oh-so hip and happening Inner Mission District..definitely a kitchen suitable for Easter Brunch, or Thanksgiving Dinner.


From $999,000 to $1,328,000…. our friends around the world are collectively shaking their heads in disbelief. As for us, it’s all too familiar.

Inner Mission Victorian Fixer Sells $320,000 Over List | In Knoxville That Buys You This…

Not to be outdone by any of the fixers clinching the top spot on a few of our previous top 10 Overbids1078-80 York, a two unit in San Francisco’s hot, hotter, hottest Inner Mission District, just closed for only $320,000 over ask.


(People around the world scratching their heads thinking, “Is this guy nuts? I could buy an entire house (maybe in Knoxville) for what this person just paid over asking on this piece o’ hooey property that doesn’t even have a kitchen!?”) Yessir, it’s what many would call a “dump”, but not us, and it actually has two kitchens…granted they don’t work, but this property right here is a diamond in the rough and we’d go so far as to say this buyer scored a great property at a very fair price, in a very hot location, location, location.

Maximum Overbid Of The Week | Outer Parkside

It had to be the lion blanket, because apparently the original $1,099,000 list price wasn’t enough to entice the frenzy. So what happened? Price reduced to $995,000, and look at that…sold for $1,225,000. In case you missed that, that’s higher than the previous list price two short months prior, at which this home was unable to find a buyer. Some things in life simply make no sense.

Maximum Overbid of the Week | Bernal Heights Fixer Wins Again

It’s Friday! Yeah! (If you’re not a Realtor who works every weekend.) That means overbids, and look at that, another fixer takes the cake. This time it’s 554 Anderson in Bernal Heights, a 2 bed, 1 bath home listed for $549,000 and sold for $920,000. As for the rest of the top 10, I think this is the first time we’ve seen the list not contain one single property over $2,000,000.

Underbids All Over The Map | San Francisco

Did you miss the Top 10 Overbids last week? Don’t worry, SFGate has em posted, but since it’s Monday (well it was yesterday), we like to bring you the weekly top 10 Underbids. Sounds like SFGate might recap them there too, so keep your eyes peeled.

The top dogs are a variety this time around. Locations are spread out – Western Addition, Bayview, Nob hill, Telegraph Hill, Marina, Pacific Heights, Inner Mission, Cow Hollow, and Noe Valley. Sizes range from a 232 square foot micro studio condo, which sold for $390,000 (don’t get too excited, that’s nearly $1700/sqft), to a 5590 square foot 5 bedroom mansion, which sold for only $1500/sqft (don’t get too excited here either, that’s $8.4M). There’s even a commercial unit in the mix, that fetched “only” $430/sqft (we ain’t talking apples to apples to the above.)

Just goes to show, in real estate, particularly in San Francisco it’s all about location, location, location…and pricing, marketing, presentation, and timing.

Regardless, have a great work week. Enjoy the top 10, stay dry, and pray for more rain/snow.

Maximum Overbid: Severely Damaged, No Electricity, Not Habitable, But Still Top Dog

You gotta love a market (as a seller) where an agent can use the most eloquent of beautifully descriptive words to sell such a wonderful property, in such immaculate condition and still easily (likely with stacks of offers) get a property sold.

From the marketing:

A complete TEAR-DOWN! Beyond the external frame, this home is severely damaged/charred/burned from a fire last May 2014. No electricity so access is limited to morning hours only. All potential buyers to sign a Hold Harmless Agreement prior to access. Probate sale, no court, no death in prop w/in last 3 years. NOT in habitable condition, this is more than a fixer, it’s a complete tear-down!

171 Bright
171 Bright

Listed for $299,000 (that had to be a record in and of itself), this wonderful Ingleside Heights Home just closed for $485,000.

Hey! Look on the bright side…nobody died in the property…at least “within the last 3 years”, and maybe, just maybe, the city will actually let you tear the whole thing down and start fresh.
