Dear Potential Buyers…Here Is Something We’d Like You to Know About Our Neighborhood!

My latest listing in Fairmount Heights, a district within Glen Park that is up a hill yet very close to the Noe Valley border, has created a bit of a stir for the letter my clients wrote to potential buyers. While buyers often write letters to sellers and include them in their offers, it is unusual for sellers to write ... Read More »

San Francisco Housing

One thing that we know is that inventory is very low in San Francisco right now. There are a number of reasons for this. A recent NYT article discussed the fact that one reason inventory is low is because people are moving less, that it seems to be the new normal.  I see signs of this regularly in San Francisco: ...

The Incredible Appreciation of SF Real Estate!

Recently, two different clients of mine contacted me about a recent sale of a property near his home. Each client had bought a unit in 2011, a year that the real estate market was just starting to come back from the 2008 downturn. Properties were staying on the market a bit longer then and motivated sellers were negotiating. Just five ... Read More »

A Bit of a Change in Noe Valley

We are at a half-way point in 2016, and the market generally, and even in Noe Valley, started to change the beginning of this year compared to the last half of 2015.

I’ve been noticing more and more homes on Broker’s Tour have bathrooms with views these days. I spotted this one on Tuesday in a beautifully redesigned home that just came on the market at 4335 23rd Street in Noe Valley. With such an amazing view from the bath, this room becomes a sanctuary to escape the hectic pace of life. Read More »

“Offer Dates” Decline and “Offers As They Come” Return to SF

It feels like a cooler wind is hitting our market. I saw twelve properties of varying price points between $699,000 and $4,700,000 on Broker’s Tour today. They were in the north and south ends of the city, including Presidio Heights, Pacific Heights, Nob Hill, Russian Hill, Noe Valley, the Inner Mission and Glen Park. In a hot market, some agents ...

What Can You Buy in SF Between $1M and $1.2M?

My client is looking for a two bedroom condo for up to $1.2M. Unfortunately, that could be a bit of a challenge in San Francisco, depending on which neighborhood you are looking in. Anyone reading this who lives outside of California is probably a little shocked because that amount of money could buy a very nice home with land in ... Read More »

SF Real Estate Profits Soar!

In early August, I wrote about what a great investment SF real estate is, which is no secret. I gave as examples three properties clients of mine were interested in and the profit I thought the sellers might receive based on my evaluation of what they might sell for. Now, all of their sales have just closed and I can ... Read More »

The Transformation of Noe Valley

Noe Valley is one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city.  It has sentimental value for me since my husband and I purchased our first home there – a two bedroom condo with a fireplace and outlooks to a beautifully manicured garden. I have many fond memories of that 850 square foot condo!  But when we bought it in 1990, ... Read More »
