Catching Up On A Few Closings And Early April Apples About Town

715 Cole: A Crispy Cole Valley Apple With Potential On The Tree

We’d at least redo the kitchen and repaint the façade. And based on the lack of bathroom photos we’d probably budget for them as well. But we do like a lot of its original woodwork and bones (if not meat) of 715 Cole. On the market for $1,349,000, purchased... Read More »

Four Weeks Riper (And Another Reduction) For This Noe Valley Apple

Four Weeks Riper (And Another Reduction) For This Noe Valley Apple

As we wrote when 714 Duncan hit the market four weeks ago asking $1,295,000 having been purchased for $1,413,000 in January of 2008: There’s little doubt the quick turn will result in a loss as even with “typical San Francisco appreciation” transaction costs wouldn’t be covered. But that doesn’t... Read More »

According to a plugged-in tipster 141 Beaver Street will be hitting the market this weekend with an asking price of $1,850,000. Built in 1902 but redesigned by architect Bernardo Urquieta in 1986 with an emphasis on light and air. We’re digging the modern vibe and deconstructed flair. And the... Read More »

1470 Noe Closes For 100% Of Asking (But $25,000 Less Than In 2005)

It’s true, we missed it when the apples to apples sale of 1470 Noe recently closed escrow (hey, it happens). But luckily a reader calls us out (and we’d expect nothing less). Purchased for $1,865,000 in January of 2007 (asking $1,949,000 at the time), closed escrow on 3/27/09 with... Read More »
