Just Sold!

I recently helped my client, Jonathan, buy a home perfect for him in Eureka Valley. This home at 204 Grand View Avenue is very tastefully renovated inside with a modern look to its chef’s kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The living room has a cozy fireplace and views of the Bay. The back patio and terraced garden are a delight and exactly where my client wants to entertain his friends. He thanked me for helping him find his first

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.

The happy couple smiling from the front porch of their Corona Heights cottage which they just closed on this past

No Holiday Slowdown in the SF Market!

Holiday

Just when I thought the market was slowing down and sugar plums were dancing in my head, my buyers decided to write offers. The saying goes that making offers as the holiday approaches is a good time since if a property is on the market at this time of year, the seller must be desperate and he’ll take what he can get. But, whoever said that didn’t count on the resilient SF market that is like an Energizer Bunny. In

Is the SF Market Cooling?

In the last two weeks, a substantial number of properties have come on the market. The Broker’s Tour outlines the properties agents can view on a given Tuesday in San Francisco. It literally doubled in its number of pages from about 14, which it has hovered around this past year, to 28 pages the second week of September! My buyers who were frustrated by not finding any properties they liked suddenly jumped off the sidelines and started writing offers. One
