Under $700K Club: NoPa Mini Condo Asks $699,000
Time again for the Under $700K Club, the inflation-adjusted version of our old Under $500K club. Here we showcase the few and the proud San Francisco homes that, even in this this time of seven-figure median home prices, have the courage to sell at a mere $700,000 or less (or at least open that low).
Today’s under-seven selection is 913 Central Avenue, a two bed, one bath condo in a NoPa Victorian that’s being offered at $699,000. It’s one of three units in a house that dates to at least 1900 but may well be older, and this 515-square-foot bottom floor pad last sold in 2012 for $551,000.
