Terms & Conditions

Real estate is always changing and evolving. It's complex and can be as fickle as it is surprising. And while the information and knowledge on this site is considered to be accurate and correct, it cannot be warranted. Market conditions in San Francisco, California, and the world can change with a tweet or a sneeze and is beyond anyone's control.

In San Francisco, things like local, state and federal tax regulations can change with big implications. Other things like rent control rules, eviction control, lending practices and standards, building and zoning regulations are just a few of the other things that can change with little or no notice. All of these things and other intangible factors can and will impact market values and performance. 

Kevin is a licensed California attorney but focuses on real estate about 99.9 percent of the time. It's important to note that while you can’t take the attorney out of him he will not be acting as your attorney here. This speaks to the larger point that you should also seek out qualified folks who work in their respective sectors if you have further questions.

1329 McAllister Street

1329 is an updated, top-floor, 4-bed Victorian home that’s large, comfortable and charming with a rich history, modern conveniences and iconic location a block away from Alamo Square with its expansive green space and Painted Ladies in the heart of the city near to the thriving Divisadero Corridor, Duboce Triangle, the Fillmore and Hayes Valley. Stylish statement pieces mix modern and traditional throughout this nearly 1,900-sqft space. The floor plan organizes public, private, and flexible spaces to suit your ever-changing needs. The just-remodeled kitchen, with its subtly luxurious finishes and large pantry, flows outside to a deck and backyard via sunroom/breakfast nook. The four bedrooms allow for multiple options for living/working or learning from home. 

While the look is modern at 1329, you nevertheless will get a sense of its rich history as soon as you walk in. 

This home is refined and elegant. The sellers made subtle improvements with major impacts on comfort and real-world every day needs including installing new windows, on-demand water heater and LED lighting that not only makes daily life easier but also reduces operating costs. Yet the home retains its original Douglass fir flooring, pressed wallpaper detailing, glorious millwork, and other Victorian architectural features like harnessing a great cross breeze in this kind of historic flat that every San Franciscan knows.  

Part of a charming and friendly three-unit building that’s detached on three sides on an extra deep parcel, 1329 features an historically significant front facade along this tree-lined part of McAllister. There’s a shared backyard with lush plantings, a plum tree and hummingbirds that you can access via your deeded sunny, south-facing outdoor patio. Views are abundant, with a direct view of Alamo Square from the south-facing kitchen and dining room windows, a view of City Hall to the east from the patio, various Victorians across the street, and the Trans-America building and downtown from the living room window. 1329’s walk score is a 94 while its transit and bike scores are 88 and 83 respectively and parking is just down stairs to the right.

residence 3

The Architect’s Home. A centrally located backdrop for life — and Instagram

An architect’s former home, residence 3 at 65 Hermann Street shows how to create an urban escape. Number 3’s owner did it right because you’ll feel eminently comfortable and relaxed as soon as you walk in. There’s a calm, warm and bright vibe waiting for you.

The 1-bed, 1-bath condominium features a deeded 75-sqft patio where you can tend to your plants or relax in the sun. There are wide-plank oak floors underfoot, a just-updated dual galley kitchen with new counters, stainless steel appliances and updated modern lighting throughout. The large living room can accommodate working from home easily, its large wall space and gallery lighting where you can display your favorite pieces of art (or hang a giant tv). The subway-tiled bathroom is generous as is the bedroom and its large closet. This home has quality, location and convenience.

While you have a deeded parking space, you may not need it given that you’re at the intersection of Duboce, Hayes Valley and the Lower Haight, three of the most vibrant and interconnected neighborhoods in the City with transit, biking and driving options at your leisure.

Market Updates: August is the first time since 2014 that SF 1-bed median rent has been below $3000, new report finds – SFGate

September 1, 2020 San Francisco Real Estate

“Despite much speculation of a Bay Area exodus, ApartmentList found that the percentage of renters who are currently living in the San Francisco metro and looking to move elsewhere has remained largely stable, increasing only very slightly from 31.6 percent at this time last year to the current rate of 32.1 percent. The demand for Bay Area apartments falling, it seems, is due to the fact that the region is simply attracting fewer new residents from elsewhere, as opposed to seeing existing renters leaving the area.”

Relaxed. Practical. Upgraded. Surprising. Comfortable Nest. 

Number 204 is a rarely available, courtyard-side, 1-bed condominium with in-unit laundry, parking and outdoor access that's just been thoughtfully updated. The details are what makes this space enjoyable and comfortable. Unlike many of the units here, 204 has two large sweeping patio doors overlooking the rear courtyard allowing a light and airy feel all day. The space lives large and has a quality feel. 204's engaging updates are designed to make life more enjoyable and include new dimmable LED lighting everywhere; new hardware and trim; and, a gorgeous walnut feature wall with metal inlay detail + plenty of power for your large TV, DVR, gaming system(s) + soundbar. There's an inviting, bright, catalog-worthy kitchen and dining area for noshing or work. There's a bright bedroom with large closet, big west-facing window, and new architectural recessed lighting. Steps away from a dog park, playground + urban trail at McKinley Square, 875 is rated as ”very walkable.” Also near the vibrant Mission District, Potrero's main areas and 101. This part of Vermont Street also happens to be the curviest street in the city (sorry Lombard Street).

Real estate is always changing and evolving. It's complex and can be as fickle as it is surprising. And while the information and knowledge on this site is considered to be accurate and correct, it cannot be warranted. Market conditions in San Francisco, California, and the world can change with a tweet or a sneeze and is beyond anyone's control. In San Francisco, things like local, state and federal tax regulations can change with big implications. Other things like rent control rules, eviction control, lending practices and standards, building and zoning regulations are just a few of the other things that can change with little or no notice. All of these things and other intangible factors can and will impact market values and performance. 

Kevin is a licensed California attorney but focuses on real estate about 99.9 percent of the time.

SF Chronicle Sound-Off Q+A: Still Busy During Covid with Kevin+Jonathan

People need to buy and sell houses no matter when

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE Q+A

The San Francisco Chronicle asks expert area realtors questions every week for their Sound-Off segment found in its Sunday Real Estate Section. The online counter part appears on SF Gate. We've been asked to contribute and do so fairly often, which is what you're seeing here.  

Q: Is it a challenge to stay busy right now? Why or why not?

A: Because our approach to real estate is quite personal and big picture, we’ve been very busy recently as the pandemic has changed personal circumstances for so many. It’s a transition period where it’s important to keep an eye on the bigger perspective, which is still strong in San Francisco: inventory and activity is up.

Buyers fortunate enough to be able to buy now are eager to secure low mortgage rates instead of paying rent. Because COVID has changed commutes, some homeowners are looking to relocate to homes with yards and more space. And there are landlords who want to leave the rental business.

Serving this wide mix of client needs takes more time and effort: property visits require PPE and scheduling; mortgage processing times are up; decisions to buy or sell consider more factors than before. This is why it’s great that there are two of us helping our clients and that we have a go-to support team to ensure nothing is missed.

SF Chronicle Sound-Off Q+A: Impact a Second Corona Spike on San Francisco's Housing Market Considered with Kevin+Jonathan

How has another wave of Corona-19 cases impacted San Francisco’s housing market? It’s emphasized how important it is to be working with professionals like Kevin Ho and Jonathan McNarry of San Francisco’s largest, independently owned brokerage Vanguard Properties.

Kevin Quoted in Mission Local: “Real estate market in the Mission appears to recover, for now - Mission Local”

“A lot of renters have become buyers,” observed real estate agent Kevin Ho. “All the talk of exodus — that’s the headline-grabbing news — but the real news is that a lot of buyers have a little more affordability. And a little more balance to the market allows them to own a piece of San Francisco.”

Ho said more of the buyers right now seem to be people who want to live in the home they’re purchasing, rather than using it as an investment. He said some of the recent changes to the law around tenant protections and rent forgiveness might be having an impact, and investors “don’t necessarily want to assume that risk.” In Mission Local.

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE Q+A

The San Francisco Chronicle asks expert area realtors questions every week for their Sound-Off segment found in its Sunday Real Estate Section. The online counter part appears on SF Gate. We've been asked to contribute and do so fairly often, which is what you're seeing here.  

Q: How do you expect the recent spike in COVID-19 cases to affect the Bay Area’s housing market?

A: Since COVID started, many aspects of the Bay Area’s housing market stayed the same: it still costs about $1,000 per square foot to buy a home in San Francisco. People are still buying and selling.

Lenders are still lending (at very low interest rates). But it’s also changed: There are fewer transactions overall. Prices have stayed strong for houses but dipped a bit for condos. And there are no open houses.

The latest spike in COVID-19 cases will impact the housing market like everything else: it’ll interrupt our slow crawl towards a semblance of normalcy. You won’t be able to stumble upon an open house while out one weekend for a long while.

But the spike stresses why it’s even more important to work with good agents especially now.

Private appointments that agents facilitate are the only way to see a property for sale in person. More important, because COVID has really highlighted what “home” means to people, who better to help guide people with expertise, perspective and context sorely needed now than your friendly agent?

From the Chronicle: Bay Area residents still want to stay in California despite ‘mass exodus’ myths

The much hallybooed exodus isn’t as exodusing as it’s supposed to be…

There’s been a lot reported about San Francisco residents fleeing the city, causing rents to plummet and SF home sales finally embracing transparent pricing. But when looking at data from online real estate platforms, most of the real estate searching is still happening within the metro area and throughout California.

Kevin gets quoted and sounds a bit more upbeat and nuanced than all those other agents. 

Is it a good time or not for real estate?

The real estate market in the Mission District and San Francisco appears to be on its way to recovering from the shutdown in March, according to several real estate agents ...

Real estate market in the Mission appears to recover, for now

 

The real estate market in the Mission District and San Francisco appears to be on its way to recovering from the shutdown in March, according to several real estate agents, although some parts of the market remain sluggish.

“The market is holding up pretty strong, but it depends on the segment,” said real estate agent Ruth Krishnan. “Condos and high-rise buildings are the softest. I would say people aren’t super stoked about getting in an elevator. And people have decided that they really, really value outdoor space and greenery.”

Krishnan said her agency recently sold a condo in the Mission District on Shotwell Street.

“It did very well, but it had this beautiful private garden,” she said. “With condos, definitely the ones that are doing the best, selling the quickest, and selling for the highest prices have outdoor space. That’s a big thing for people right now.”

 

“Most of the stuff sitting right now, it just doesn’t have any yard space,” she added.

Krishnan said that, typically, March is the busiest month for real estate in San Francisco, but this year all listings were pulled when the shelter-in-place order was announced. That didn’t keep things down for long, though. The city added real estate to the list of essential businesses on March 31, and Krishnan immediately started seeing business pick up.

“I was shocked. Right coming out of [March], people were already writing very aggressive offers. I was like, ‘Wait, what? Really? Right now?’” she said.

The monthly median house sale price in San Francisco set a new record of $1.8 million in June, according to the monthly report from the Compass real estate brokerage. “But it’s just a single month,” added Patrick Carlisle, chief market analyst for Compass.

“I never would have guessed that we would see this sort of rebound around the Bay Area, in the midst of one of the greatest health and economic crises in U.S. history,” Carlisle said.

Although the rebound in San Francisco is dramatic, it’s the smallest of the Bay Area, he said. Other counties — including more rural areas like Sonoma, Napa, Monterey, and Santa Cruz counties — have all seen spikes that “may be higher than at any time in history, in terms of offers being accepted.”

The rebound in San Francisco might not be as pronounced, perhaps, because the city has stricter shelter-in-place rules, Carlisle said, or perhaps because it’s the most densely populated region of the Bay Area.

 

“The Mission remains popular and strong,” said real estate agent Jennifer Rosdail. “The shutdown slowed it down at first, but people have figured out how to get their transactions done, and it’s accelerating a little bit.”

Since April, Rosdail said sales started coming back and have improved each month. “I’ve seen that in every segment I’ve checked — except for the luxury homes over, like, $2.5 million,” she said.

There aren’t many of those more expensive single-family homes in the Mission, but in a neighborhood like Noe Valley, the pattern is striking, Rosdail said. Single-family homes priced lower than $2.5 million there are moving much more quickly than those above $2.5 million, and more appear to be entering the market than are being sold.

“I think that dichotomy is interesting. I see a deceleration in the luxury homes” in Noe Valley, Rosdail said.


"All the talk of exodus — that’s the headline-grabbing news — but the real news is that a lot of buyers have a little more affordability. And a little more balance to the market allows them to own a piece of San Francisco." — Kevin Ho


Taking the city as a whole, Carlisle’s analysis shows luxury single-family homes priced above $3 million are increasing in price — but that’s based on properties that have accepted offers, while Rosdail is also examining the growing supply of inventory in Noe Valley.

By and large, Carlisle said he prefers not to look at individual neighborhoods.

“When you look at a specific neighborhood, the sales numbers are so low, it’s hard for the data to be statistically reliable,” he said. “I generally try to look at them only on an annual basis.”

But, even with small sample sizes, it remains the only tool we have.

Crunching the numbers for the Mission, Rosdail said things were picking up in terms of volume and price — but that didn’t mean losses had been fully recovered, especially for condos. Comparing the median price of a two-bedroom condo that sold in May this year with the same time period last year, the price had dropped from $1.25 million to $1.05 million — or about 16 percent less. But, again, prices have gone up since then.

“April was a terrible month to sell your home. May wasn’t so bad. June was pretty good,” Rosdail said. “I don’t think we’re going to experience a summer slowdown this year; I think we already had it in April. People are just going to keep charging forward.”

The pandemic has also shifted what many people normally think of as in-demand neighborhoods.

“Outer Richmond is hot right now. The Sunset is doing great, because people want more space, they want to be away from each other,” Rosdail said.  Meanwhile, condos in SoMa haven’t been moving as quickly.

“A lot of renters have become buyers,” observed real estate agent Kevin Ho. “All the talk of exodus — that’s the headline-grabbing news — but the real news is that a lot of buyers have a little more affordability. And a little more balance to the market allows them to own a piece of San Francisco.”

Ho said more of the buyers right now seem to be people who want to live in the home they’re purchasing, rather than using it as an investment. He said some of the recent changes to the law around tenant protections and rent forgiveness might be having an impact, and investors “don’t necessarily want to assume that risk.”

In San Francisco, the market for apartment buildings has also changed. For buildings with six or more apartments, Ho said the market had “quieted down, with not much movement.”

“For four units or under, we’re seeing good activity, because it’s more manageable,” he said. “Bigger buildings with multiple units, we’re seeing that market kind of take a pause as they wait and see how this pans out, because of all those changes” to rental laws.

Not all real estate agents Mission Local spoke to were convinced prices would continue to climb. An agent familiar with the Mission District, but who did not wish to be quoted by name, conveyed skepticism that the rush the city had seen over the past few months would be sustainable. Buyers may become choosier before submitting an offer on a less-desirable property, they argued, which could lead to more houses than buyers.

Analyzing numbers can tell us how the market has performed so far, but predicting the future remains as elusive as ever.

855 Bellevue Avenue

Right across the San Mateo county line, in Original Daly City/Crocker and perched on a quiet part of the street with a green space behind is 855 Bellevue Drive, which is a 5-bed, 2.5-bath 2-car parking, 2,000-sqft home that’s just been remodeled.

Spacious. Gracious. And newly remodeled for its future owners, 855 Bellevue has 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2-car garage parking, a second living area and a dramatic north view towards San Francisco and, on a clear day, the view goes all the way to Mt. Tam.

855 is move-in ready with various possibilities for the floor plan. The quiet home has a large back garden that sits next to a large green space behind the property. The midcentury home has just had its systems updated (new forced air heater, water heater, and windows among more); a new, large and bright kitchen installed with new cabinets, counters, backsplash tile and brand-new stainless appliances. The home also has new recessed LED lighting throughout and new double-pane windows. The bonus lower space has 8+-foot tall ceilings, access to the backyard and to the garage where the laundry hookups are.

Minutes away from BART, Westlake, 280 and San Francisco’s Crocker neighborhood the home is ready for its next chapter having been in the same family for nearly 40 years.

Terms & Conditions

Real estate is always changing and evolving. It's complex and can be as fickle as it is surprising. And while the information and knowledge on this site is considered to be accurate and correct, it cannot be warranted. Market conditions in San Francisco, California, and the world can change with a tweet or a sneeze and is beyond anyone's control.

In San Francisco, things like local, state and federal tax regulations can change with big implications. Other things like rent control rules, eviction control, lending practices and standards, building and zoning regulations are just a few of the other things that can change with little or no notice. All of these things and other intangible factors can and will impact market values and performance. 

Kevin is a licensed California attorney but focuses on real estate about 99.9 percent of the time. It's important to note that while you can’t take the attorney out of him he will not be acting as your attorney here. This speaks to the larger point that you should also seek out qualified folks who work in their respective sectors if you have further questions.
