A plugged-in reader went to the head of the site fifteen months ago for a must read comment concerning the actual cost of building a home in San Francisco. Our post on 235 Broderick sparked some excellent conversation over the past few days concerning the cost to renovate. And from the listing for the 2,417 square foot 50 Santa Ana Ave today:
Well designed Colonial style home in St. Francis Wood priced for a quick sale to a contractor or knowledgable (sic) buyer prepared to have renovations done. Appears to be structurally sound but needs roof, gutters, paint, kitchen and other cosmetics.
Now we’re not so naïve as to expect any responses from those who might be interested in this particular property, but we’d welcome any back of the envelope calculations, insight or debate from the rest.
