188 King Street: Sales Update

188 King Street: Sales Update

Trying to make sense of what’s been happening over at 188 King is challenging at best. Three months ago, 188 King priced the first of what was to be three releases of condos. This initial release consisted of 16 units, three of which (#206, #404, #505) were already marked... Read More »

Arterra and The Hayes: Sales Centers

Arterra and The Hayes: Sales Centers

We have to admit, our tour of the joint Arterra and The Hayes sales center left us feeling a bit under-whelmed (but then again we’ve probably been spoiled by the showrooms at One Rincon Hill and The Infinity). No full-scale condos here, but plenty of drawings and representative kitchens/bathrooms... Read More »

Sierra Heights (25-75 Sierra Street) Update

Sierra Heights (25-75 Sierra Street) Update

Word on the street is that Sierra Heights (25-75 Sierra Street) should start closing escrow on condos this week with a temporary certificate of occupancy in hand. Assuming all units with depositis close, the development will be about 80% sold (we’ve heard 14 out of 67 condos remain available).... Read More »

Save $1,600,000 At 1750 Taylor

Save $1,600,000 At 1750 Taylor

Four months ago we highlighted 1750 Taylor #1301, a stunning six million dollar condo that left us salivating (and no, we still haven’t had a chance to wake up in that bed). At the time, the unit directly below (#1201) was being offered for half a million less, but... Read More »

Subterfuge at 301 Bryant?

Subterfuge at 301 Bryant?

Four days ago the original listing for 301 Bryant #101 (and its history of price reductions) was withdrawn from the MLS and replaced with a new listing at an even lower price (reduced another $39,000 and now “priced to sell!!”). Not to be outdone, #704 (which has been reduced... Read More »

Watermark Update: 78% Sold (And Discounting)

Watermark Update: 78% Sold (And Discounting)

Okay, while these aren’t official sales office sanctioned statistics, they’re also not just some wild ass guesses. (We like to think of it as deductive reasoning.) That being said, here’s our take on the current state of affairs at the Watermark: Prices and Discounting: At the low end, $695K... Read More »

Handy Hint Of The Day: Wash The Windows

Handy Hint Of The Day: Wash The Windows

SocketSite’s handy hint of the day: if you’re showcasing your home, condo, or building to potential buyers, agents or brokers, go ahead and invest the extra cash to wash the windows. It’ll make a huge difference. Especially if it’s $3.3M penthouse sporting floor-to-ceiling windows with gorgeous Bay/city views, and... Read More »

That’s Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle To You

That’s Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle To You

Don’t get us wrong, we love this plaque (and the building). As to the plaque’s validity, however, Mister SF isn’t buying it: A plaque on this 1881 house at 2151 Sacramento Street boasts that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle once occupied the Lafayette Heights residence. Actually, Conan Doyle only visited... Read More »

A Quick Flip At One Rincon Hill?

As a reader points out, we now have evidence of the first attempted flip of a One Rincon Hill condo: I have a 1 bedroom 1 bath unit above the 40th floor, with a balcony, aproximately 750sqft(not including balcony) reserved in the highly sought after 08 stack(which is... Read More »

The Infinity: A Study In Contrast

The Infinity: A Study In Contrast

Our previous post on The Infinity has generated some great comments from both prospective and actual buyers of The Infinity and One Rincon Hill. The early sentiment: The Infinity has a better location, One Rincon offers a better value (i.e., price), and navigating rush hour traffic will probably suck... Read More »
