Is the SF Real Estate Market Shifting?

Price reductions Fewer offers on the offer date Offer dates with no offers Properties staying on the market longer All of these are signs of a changing market! Last week, I helped two buyers purchase homes in Eureka Valley in San Francisco – one listed for $1.6M and one listed for $4.2M. In each of these situations the seller only received two offers, including my client’s. The listing agent for each home expected to receive more offers based on the

When An Offer More Than One Million Over the List Price Doesn’t Prevail!:(

Paintd Ladies

Last week I wrote an offer for clients that was more than one million dollars over the list price. Yes you heard that right – and they didn’t get it! Out of 14 offers, theirs was number 3. How did we get to this point in San Francisco? I had previously heard of one or two properties selling for more than a million dollars over the list price but those were notable exceptions. However, this experience tells me that it

Floating in the Sky in Russian Hill

Have you ever thought of owning a view home that looks out onto the city of San Francisco?  I just listed a co-op (see my earlier blogpost for more info about co-ops) that once inside makes you feel like you are floating in the sky overlooking the city. It has an open floor plan that takes full advantage of world-class views across Downtown, Russian Hill and out to the GG Bridge and the Bay. It has two bedrooms and two

Would you like to find the perfect home for family living? Peggy Economos and I just brought on the market a pristine Victorian home with a modern flair in Pacific Heights! It has 5 bedrooms and 5 ½ baths. It is perfect for family living with its spaciousness, lovely outdoor area for barbecuing, and two offices with built-in desks and cabinets. The media room is a great place to escape to with a bottle of wine from the temperature-controlled wine

Why You Should Use An In-Town Agent!

Recently, I showed a view property (view in photo) in San Francisco in Russian Hill which my clients were excited to see. The listing agent was from out of town. It was a two bedroom penthouse unit with a large deck overlooking the bay.  According to the listing in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), agents were instructed to call “Showing Time” to set up an appointment. This is a call service which I called and was told that “Showing Time”

Selling Bridge to Bridge Views of a Co-op!

LivingRooma scaled

For a list price of $11M, one expects a spectacular residence and in Russian Hill on the 16th floor of 1750 Taylor at #1601, that is exactly what you get! I represented the buyers of this amazing home. This is a co-op residence, which is different from a condo. Co-ops are not as common in San Francisco as they are in Manhattan, for example. As an owner of a co-op you own stock in a corporation that leases the unit exclusively

Just Sold!

sacramento street

I recently closed on a listing in Pacific Heights. My listing at 2878 Sacramento Street, Unit 6, was a serene top floor light-filled one bedroom plus condo filled with charm. It was in a great Pacific Heights location! My client had lived there for over 20 years and while she loved living there she was ready to make a move. It had an eat-in chef’s kitchen with cherry cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, including a Viking range. It

Staging Your Condo Virtually!

Staging Your Condo Virtually!

For every listing I have, I hire a professional photographer to come in and photograph the property. Something I also do for almost every listing I put on the market is staging, having a home furnished and decorated nicely to create beautifully designed rooms to photograph. Even if a seller already has a nicely-furnished home, staging helps to make the decorating more neutral. That way, when buyers come into the property they see attractive spaces in which they could live. Sometimes a property

There’s a chef’s kitchen which includes a Viking range and a spacious bedroom with a walk-in closet with a custom closet system.

Happy Sellers, Happy Agent!

I recently listed and sold a lovely 2 bedroom view condo in Sausalito. It sold for over the list price of $815,000 to a very happy buyer!   My clients, Chris and Carol, had this to say about their experience: We are very pleased to offer this five star review for Carol. Long ago Carol tried to help us find a place in San Francisco. She was never negative, always realistic, and very professional, but ultimately we gave up at
