Do You Gotta Have (137) Faith?
Purchased for $650,000 in July of 2005 with a first mortgage for $417,000, a second for $125,000 and $108,000 down, a year ago a notice of default was first filed for the property at 137 Faith, the first mortgage for which was already $19,666 past due at the time.
Postponed once before, tomorrow the small northern Bernal Heights home is once again scheduled to hit the courthouse steps with $447,041 owned on that first as of this past July.
As we reported back in 2009, the short sale of 110 Faith Street closed escrow with a reported contract price of $550,000 that September, 24% under its $720,000 purchase price recorded in October 2005.

Meanwhile, they are asking $949K (or $621/sf) for 146 Faith. Good luck with that.
In San Francisco, Faith is a dead-end street.

If it was painted red it would be a perfect match for one of the Blockheads from the Gumby show.

Slate on the stairs would have been killer.

Well, I think the bank will have no trouble getting the $447k on this at auction. The question is: is that going to be the actual minimum bid or will it be higher since there was a second mortgage?
In any event, I'm sure we'll see this come up again for sale within twelve months as a foreclosure flip.
