1407 Lyon
With 33 of its 71 listing photos featuring neighborhood establishments within a one mile radius, it might be a new record. And it might explain such classic listing photo captions as: “Another deli” and “Another picture of the Sundance Theatres.”
∙ Listing: 1407 Lyon Street (4/4) 2,887 sqft – $1,795,000 [MLS]

    My favorite photo caption : “Brian’s meat is unbeatable.”. Maybe Brian can comment to confirm or deny.
    The photos of the house interior are quite good. Not overdone with wild distortion and adequate to understand the property. But hey, can we get a photo of the garage or storage areas once and a while?
    [Editor’s Note: For those who are unfamiliar, “Bryan’s” is a Laurel Heights meat and grocery institution. We can’t comment on Brian.]

    Funny that they didn’t include this photo of one of the most depressing projects in the city, a block and a half away and much closer than nearly any of the locations of the places in the photos they’ve included:

    There are nice parts of LPH and bad parts of LPH and this is one of the worst. $1.8M? You’d have to be truly insane. I doubt any bank would lend that much on it.

    To be sure, you don’t need a high school diploma to become a real estate agent.

    Tipster, funny you should point out that project. I thought about buying a property on Baker Street several months ago and even though it was adorable, ended up not making an offer because of the proximity to the low income housing you linked to in your post.
    Ultimately, the owners ended up taking the property off the market because they wanted $750k for it and couldn’t get it. They had put a ton of work into the place (Bose speakers throughout the house, brand-new kitchen, etc) but I think the location scared people away.

    Those Bose speakers should have been your first clue.

    The open house was amazing, dispite being Easter weekend. The positives of the home are great- and those of you posting negatives about the neighborhood probably dont live there. Many of the local owners did show up- and there are no negative comments about the low income units nearby.
    I also take a strong objection the the post about not needing a highscool diploma to sell homes in SF. I actually have a masters degree, and bring great energy creativity and pride to my work. Id love to invit who ever posted that to give this work a try. It aint easy, but I do earn GREAT commissions!

    I saw the property on Sunday and the property is amazing. The owners basically gutted out the property and converted into an amazing open space. Prices in SF are high but such is life. San Francisco is small and no matter what people think, living next to not so nice areas is part of urban living. Why do people seem to be prone to complain? Homes in Nob Hill are just as expensive and they are next to the tenderloin. I lived in NY and London and it is much more expensive there and even if you pay $5 million, you are likely to be within a block of undesirable areas. At the same time, that is what gives a neighborhood its character.

    This many typos per sentence can’t happen by accident. I think someone is posing as the agent.

    “Dan” or Daniel maybe French. His masters degree is in Art not spelling. I congratulate him and his enthusiasm in the new listing. His great excitement displayed via the 70+ photos posted on MLS.
    On the side, you do not need to know how to spell to sell Real Estate.
    However, I would recommend spell check. Socketsite has it, so someone, is playing a joke on the dude. Could be another envious realtor w/o a listing.
    As for being near the projects, a really good alarm system helps, and by the way, you would pay double that price if you moved up further North to the heart of Pac Hghts. Not a spelling error just R.E. lingo. What line of business are you in English teacher wanna be?:)
