Down only 4% in the last 10 1/2 months - I'd say that is a better-than-market outcome.
Of course, that is $11,000 pissed away every month plus even more in transaction costs (and still more in the delta over comparable rent). "Investing" in SF real estate is getting to be pretty predictable.

The amount of money being lost on SF real estate, for no benefit at all, just boggles the mind. $300K more than renting in this case. Do that every year and it can really add up!

remember they had it on the market after 8 months, so they weren't in there the last couple months.

The Stalinist nostalgia look is getting tired. Give us some colors.

if not for the plants, that would look like a black & white photo.

^^^Yeah, and that's the point the architect is making. But the coolness of the effect wears off quickly. Cities are made for people, not Dwell wannabes.

This "suburban Bucharest" remodel still takes 1st prize for drab & depressing in my book.

Just too many steps - it's too bad the architect didn't futureproof things with an elevator, or a stack of closets that could be swapped for one.
