New York In Nob Hill

New York In Nob Hill

As you know, it’s not often that we agree with listing hyperbole. And although we’ve only seen pictures (so far), we just might have to agree with the “One of a Kind Loft in Nob Hill!” claim for 1022 Powell St. #3. Then again, we’re suckers for vines, brick,... Read More »

Tip Of The Day

Handy hint: If it’s April 14th, and your listing is still active, you might want to consider changing the “…don’t miss a rare opportunity. Offers due Wed April 5th” part of its description on the MLS. Update: Damn, the hints really work. Within hours this MLS listing was updated... Read More »

Those Damn Neighbors Redux?

Those Damn Neighbors Redux?

What to do when another condo in your building (1755 Jackson) hits the market for $150K less than you’re asking, offers the same square footage is larger (1985 versus 1906 sqft) and configured as a 3/3 (versus a 2/2.5), and boasts two in-building (versus down the block) parking spaces?...

An Exhibitionist At Heart (And Rightfully So)

An Exhibitionist At Heart (And Rightfully So)

Big windows, ocean views, an open floor plan, Wolf stove, Sub-Zero fridge, radiant heat, and decks…yep, we’re definitely digging the “to the studs remodel” of 2127 29th Ave (but not the parquet floors in the living/dining area). Want to see it? You’re in luck. A “Preview Open” on the... Read More »

What’s Wrong With 999 Wisconsin?

What’s Wrong With 999 Wisconsin?

A reader tips us off to the listing for 999 Wisconsin St. #8. On paper it looks like a real winner: 1900 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, fireplace, 2 car side-by-side parking, and a list price of only $699,500. Yet two price reductions (first listed at $749,000) and... Read More »

Let The Games Begin

As the Bay Area real estate market continues to evolve, so do the sales tactics. As opposed to specific offer dates and purposely under priced listings — both of which that are designed to encourage a bidding war — an increasing number of listings are actually welcoming “offers as... Read More »

Locking In Gains At The Midtown?

Locking In Gains At The Midtown?

At least three units in the twenty-two unit Midtown are currently on the market. The Midtown was built in 2004 which means that the two-year capital gains tax exclusion should be in sight for most of the original owners who have occupied their units since purchasing. And yes ‘pwb’,... Read More »

Originally constructed in 1999, and mapped as condos, the 63 units that comprise Alamo Square (988 Fulton) are currently undergoing a transformation from apartments to condos.

776 Tehama/1277 Howard: Pricing

776 Tehama/1277 Howard: Pricing

776 Tehama/1277 Howard is now open. Decent views from the upper floors, and relatively spacious, but we’re not so sure about that “luxury” moniker. Overall, we weren’t terribly impressed, but then again we’re probably too damn picky. One interesting note: as far as we know, the first residential new... Read More »
