Most people are familiar with condos, which is ownership of a unit in a multi-family property that can include non-exclusive use of some other parts of the property. An owner

Is the SF Condo Market Picking Up – Again?


Last year when people asked me about the real estate market, I told them it was a great time to buy. You don’t often see a buyer’s market in San Francisco but last year was it.

Having once served as a part-time real estate professional in Massachusetts, I used my estimates to compare

Reducing Price in a Hot Market!

Powell LR

I just reduced the price of my Nob Hill listing – an architectural gem of a condo at the St. Elizabeth. ( It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and according to tax records, it is 1562 square feet. It was originally listed for $1,395,000 and received an offer almost immediately – under asking which my client did not accept or counter. The price now is $1,299,000. At $831.63 per square foot, it’s a real bargain in Nob Hill where
