When “SOLD!” Really Isn’t Sold

When “SOLD!” Really Isn’t Sold

Despite being marketed as “SOLD!” over the past six weeks, we recently noticed a listing for 776 Tehama #9. As we previously noted, #9 is a Below Market Rate (BMR) unit and will be offered through the Mayors Office of Housing for $247,566. Not a bad deal considering that... Read More »

A Premature Reduction?

A Premature Reduction?

After a whopping eight days on the market, the asking price for 32 Arnold Avenue was reduced 5% from $875,000 to $829,000 (according to ZipRealty). We can’t help but wonder: a lack of patience, a lack of pricing acumen, or a lack of reality? Listing: 32 Arnold Avenue (2/2)... Read More »

Is It The Location, Market, Or Peskin?

Is It The Location, Market, Or Peskin?

When two months on the market and $30,000 in reductions (per unit) doesn’t get it done, perhaps another round of “MAJOR” reductions (between $30,000 and $70,000) and a deadline (“OFFERS DUE FRIDAY MAY 26 by 5:00PM”) will do the trick. Rest assured, we’ll be checking in on the 27th…... Read More »

Pick Of The Week

Pick Of The Week

With 7,400 square feet of modern living space, 2973 Jackson just might be our high-end (i.e., if you have to ask…) pick of the week (we’ll just need to do a walk though before making it official). Details that caught our eye: an open floor plan, three story atrium,... Read More »

Yet Another Cut

Yet Another Cut

Ladies and gentlemen, it looks like we have a new RealRecentReductions record! The asking price for 1106 Shotwell #A has been reduced for a 5th time (now $280,000; down $19,900, or 6.6%). And no, no Ellis Act or Owner Move In (OMI) evictions on record (according to the listing).... Read More »

Oh So Sexy Showers

Oh So Sexy Showers

We’re suckers for a luxurious shower (and doubly so when it’s outside). So you can imagine our glee when we first noticed the five shower heads (including two separately controlled rain-heads and a steam function) in the his & her shower at 188 South Park #7, and then our... Read More »

One Expensive Acre

One Expensive Acre

According to the Wall Street Journal, Larry Ellison has sold one acre of his 2.8-acre Atherton estate for a rumored $9 million dollars. And although the one acre parcel doesn’t include any of the Japanese style dwellings, it does include a “four-car garage and a clay tennis court.” (Hmm…wonder... Read More »

The Scarlet ‘R’ Of 57 Marina Boulevard

The Scarlet ‘R’ Of 57 Marina Boulevard

There’s nothing quite like being unfairly branded with a nationwide Scarlet ‘R'(educed). But if that’s not bad enough, perhaps Zillow can help confuse things even more. You see, 57 Marina Boulevard in San Rafael is actually two lots (with separate parcel numbers). And while it appears that Zillow does... Read More »

On To Plan R

On To Plan R

When a “cleverly disguised remote controlled hidden bed” doesn’t get the job done, perhaps a “HUGE PRICE REDUCTION!” and “SELLER CREDIT TO BUYER 1 YEAR HOA DUES” might help. Then again, when the “HUGE PRICE REDUCTION!” is only $20K (or 4%), maybe not. (And it’s a sure sign they’re... Read More »

Don’t Like The View?  Just Change It

Don’t Like The View? Just Change It

So if 5 bedrooms, 6.6 baths and 8 parking spaces; “sensational” terraces with incredible views; and a rich history (not to mention getting featured on SocketSite) weren’t enough to pique a buyer’s interest, perhaps a little photoshopping might help. The picture on the left is from the listing agent’s... Read More »
