The spring quarter (April through June) in SF was an exercise in uncertainty, as everyone sat around waiting for a big drop in housing demand and prices…one that never quite came before June closed out. Now, other housing resources will tell you which cities, counties, or districts sold the most or the most expensive homes. … Continue reading SF’s Top Neighborhoods Are the Marina, Noe Valley, Richmond, and the Sunset…For Now

Housing watchers love stats and they love comparing neighborhoods, so we’re giving the people what they want: A monthly breakdown of housing demand, divvied up neighborhood by neighborhood to determine which corner of SF was the top earner, starting with February. But how do we measure demand? The obvious metric is price, but that’s not … Continue reading Noe Valley Was SF’s Most Expensive Neighborhood In February
Sometimes the real estate game is simple: All you have to do is predict the future. That doesn’t require any special powers–just a reasonably good sense of the way things are going. Case in point, back in September we featured 320 Day Street, a crumbling fixer advertised as “the worst house on the best block” … Continue reading Maximum Overbid: “The Worst House” Doubles Its Money
For the second week in a row our biggest overbid lies on the westernmost edge of Noe Valley, and for the first time in memory it’s not a house but a condo. At 15 Perego Terrace a three bed, two bath setup took just under two weeks to score $1.7 million, well over the initial … Continue reading Maximum Overbid: Breaking a Tie
We know where you can get a deal on a house in Noe Valley, but the catch is that you’ve got to build it yourself. Yes, it’s another “shovel ready” project for sale, this one at 942 Noe Street, just a few blocks from the main Noe Valley 24th Street strip. Ordinarily that term means … Continue reading Build-It-Yourself Noe Valley House Asks $2.49 Million
The time has come once again to follow the money with Maximum Overbid, our weekly column examining just how much SF buyers went above and beyond when paying for a home. And for the first time in literally months, the top overbid for the week did NOT happen in the Sunset; instead it’s a Noe … Continue reading Maximum Overbid: Peaks In Valleys
Selling a home–or anything really–demands a deft approach and a certain way with words; the smallest thing can mean the difference between a sale and a close call, and you have to always put a property in the best possible light. Sometimes, however, you’ve got no choice but to just plain tell it like it … Continue reading “Worst House” In Noe Valley Asks $995k
I was in the process of compiling this week’s list of top 10 Overbids, but couldn’t help to just share this one nutty overbid with you instead…350 Jersey, in the heart-center of Noe Valley, is a “Spacious fixer-upper single-family home, circa 1941” Only in San Francisco do those words get you damn near $1500 per … Continue reading The $2,005,000 Fixer | Noe Valley
Congratulations to my clients that recently purchased this amazing single family view home in prime Noe Valley at 956 Elizabeth St. With vultures circling, we were able to beat the competition by submitting a pre-emptive offer at a price acceptable to the seller, avoid any frenzied bidding wars, and get it to stick…which it did.
Remember this NOPA multi-unit that went from $1.6M to $822k? Check out this 50% ownership in a Cole Valley 4 unit Victorian that just sold for 13% under asking after being on market for 51 days. In case you didn’t get that…that’s a two unit purchase into a 4 unit building, which you will own … Continue reading From Overbids To Underbids, What’s Our Market Going To Do?
In this week’s list of top 10 underbids, we have 5 multi-unit properties, 3 single family homes, and only 2 condos (SOMA and Noe Valley). Coming in at #1 is this NOPA multi-unit building, which just closed 15.69% under it’s most recent asking price of $975,000, at $822,000. Hang on…it gets better.
There is always a lot of talk around town about how “easy” it is to sell a property in San Francisco, and that all we (Realtors) have to do is sign up a listing, put a sign out front, and the hordes of buyers will come marching through the door, offer oodles over asking, beg … Continue reading Before & After On A Noe Valley/Glen Park Victorian
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. … Continue reading Underbids All Over The Map | San Francisco
