You know how if you do a job for long enough eventually you become accustomed or even jaded to its ups and downs, no matter how shocking? Well, this is not one of those jobs: You’d think after so many overbids every week we’d have seen it all–and hey, maybe we really have. But these … Continue reading Maximum Overbid: San Francisco Continues To Shock Us
Today’s lesson: How to make $3 million in just ten easy days. Or was it actually five years? Or more than that? It depends on your perspective. Certainly the number is right: Our top overbid for the week, a four bed, three bath Outer Sunset setup at 1591 43rd Avenue closed a deal this week … Continue reading Maximum Overbid: A Sunset Home For a Pac Heights Price
The Bravo show Million Dollar Listing has been a consistent hit for about a decade now, but its San Francisco spin-off lasted only one season. Maybe the problem was the title: In SF, a million-dollar listing is probably selling itself short. That was the case with this week’s top overbid, a two bed, two bath … Continue reading Maximum Overbid: Where In SF Can You Find a Million-Dollar Listing?
Flipping a fixer can be a formula for a quick payday, but it turns out there’s an even easier way to score a big deal, if you’re lucky enough. This week’s biggest overbid is 1787 48th Avenue, an Outside Sunset house right on the edge of the recently acclaimed Great Highway that listed for nearly … Continue reading Maximum Overbid: Someone Else’s Payday
Overbids are entertaining, but skeptical housing watchers always have to wonder whether they’re the result of real market forces or just canny sellers pricing low (although arguably the latter IS a market force–just not necessarily one we account for a lot of the time). It’s always more fun to imagine that the top seller for … Continue reading Maximum Overbid: Sunset Surprise
When is a bargain not quite what it seems? When it turns into an overbid instead. That’s what happened with this week’s top overbid at 2358 41st Avenue. This two bed, one bath, Outer Sunset setup listed for $1.09-plus million less than two weeks ago, advertised as a “great price,” and closed out for $1.5 … Continue reading Maximum Overbid: The Telltale Bargain
It’s getting harder and harder to buy a house for less than $1 million in San Francisco, but that’s not necessarily anybody’s fault. In the examples of this week’s overbids, several sellers initially priced their offerings at under seven figures, only for bidding to push the final cost up over that mark. Of course, in … Continue reading SF Overbids All Top $1 Million
It’s safe to say people still want to live in San Francisco, especially San Francisco’s Outer Sunset District. With 1919 47th Ave listing at $999,000, and selling for $1,400,000 (mind you we’re still technically in the grips of this pandemic), one can only shake their head in disbelief. This is not the only insane overbid. … Continue reading Outer Sunset Home Sells $401,000 Over Asking | Ocean Beach Surfers Everywhere Shake Their Heads
Wow what a week! And you all know I’m not talking real estate, so why don’t we take our mind off the election for a second and actually do talk real estate. Kicking things off, I have a new listing in the Outer Sunset that is pure gold. You may have seen it quietly pop … Continue reading Outer Sunset Gold, Overbids, and More…
I’m happy to report the successful “off market” sale of this great Outer Sunset home. The market for homes like this is still incredibly strong. If you’re considering a sale in the West Side of San Francisco, we can help. ——- It’s time to ditch the density and head to the beach! This mid-century charmer … Continue reading 1771 39th Ave | Sold Off Market | Outer Sunset | $1,650,000
Our apologies, but the content of this blog post has vanished into cyberspace. Rest assured, we’re up there with the Skywalkers looking for it….
You thought I was going to let you finish out the year without one final Overbid stunner, didn’t you? I actually tried, but then it didn’t snow (Supreme Leader says it’s cold, so Global Warming is not a real thing), so I was left with a choice of skiing man-made ice, or sit down and … Continue reading $682,000 Over Asking in the Outer Sunset to End the Year
It’s official…in San Francisco a million bucks barely buys you an (almost on the beach) beach bungalow…actually you need $1,050,000…and depending on what size waves you’re thinking of surfing at the most popular surf spot north of San Diego, you’ll want to consider ultra custom space-saving racks. In case you’re wondering, it was listed at … Continue reading The Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Million Dollar Beach Bungalow
Living well means something different to everyone. For some of us, it means indulging in all the luxuries life offers, and to others it means living a healthy, active lifestyle. Luckily, and why we live here, San Francisco offers both. Recently the folks over at Trulia shared their perspectives on living well in this Best Neighborhoods post, which coincided with … Continue reading San Francisco Takes Top Honors On Trulia’s Best Neighborhoods List
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 … Continue reading Maximum Overbid Of The Week | Welcome To The Mission | Kitchen & Bath Not Included
This home on 43rd Ave just sold $331,000 over asking, and takes this week’s top spot on the top 10 San Francisco Overbids. But let’s look deeper into what’s going on here. You might be wondering why I chose the amazing picture of pro surfer Damien Hobgood getting burned by some random guy as this … Continue reading Maximum Overbid Of The Week | Embrace The Chaos
