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
A great testimonial from two very happy selling clients. Hi Alex, Thanks again for the great work on the sale of our Outer Sunset Condo. We really never expected to get even close to the price you were able to achieve for us. When we decided to move in Nov 2012, the Outer Sunset was … Continue reading “You Understand the Modern Buyer, Who Can Do Their Own Research and Come Prepared”
To say we knocked it out of the park on this sale would be an understatement. Transaction details below: 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 … Continue reading SOLD! 1582 48th Ave | Outer Sunset Top Floor Condo By Ocean Beach Gets $226,000 Over Asking
Hi all! I just wanted to give a little update to you from my world of San Francisco real estate. In my humble opinion, the market is extremely hot for the right properties. On Friday I wrote four separate offers (five if you count that one property is two condos), in four entirely different neighborhoods, … Continue reading Four Buyers In Four Days…And 121 Beulah, How Did It End?
