301 Guerrero Street

Updated Mission Dolores Condominium Suited for 2021

Large, warm, comfortable. 301 Guerrero — a 1,600+ sqft condo with 3 beds, 3 baths, 2 parking spaces + deeded storage room — dates from 2003 but has just been updated for 2021’s lifestyle. With two main en suite bedrooms (each with walk-in closet), there’s a third bedroom that can easily be your shut-the-door home office. A big kitchen with 2 sinks, a 36-inch Thermador gas range, gleaming brand-new Bosch refrigerator, also has a dishwasher, plenty of counter space, outlets, storage + large island. In-unit laundry with closet for linens (one of many closets), 301 gets flooded with afternoon sun. The soft + matte wood floors give a softness and warmth that’s enhanced by the gas fireplace in the living room. New, designer dimmable LED light fixtures allow you to set the right scene as do the in-ceiling speakers. 301’s bathrooms were just updated with new vanities, floors + lights. Hardwired ethernet + modern systems. Shared roof deck/back garden in a 3-unit HOA with A+ location.   

Exempted from the Rent Ordnance’s rent and eviction control regulations, this building offers potential income opportunities as well as serving as an ample personal residence with the right amount of public and private space for work, entertaining (when we can do that again) and relaxing. There’s enough room for everyone to be by themselves as there’s enough room to congregate. Recessed lights are all high-baffle, lower-glare Halo fixtures that are dimmable to 5%, 3000K light temperature that also have an extremely accurate CRI of 91. The building’s use of bay and box windows maximizes the amount of natural sunlight that pours in especially in the afternoons.

Raffis 2020 Index for San Francisco Housing Sales

Raffi's Index
Happy 2021

Raffi’s Index

(January 2021)

 

Just as difficult 2020 was, it’s just as difficult to put it into words. So just as the Harper’s Index is a thing, here’s Raffi’s take on 2020’s housing market in San Francisco:

 

Number of closed San Francisco property sales (houses, condos, TICS, co-ops, 2-4 unit buildings) as reported on the Multiple Listing Service in 2019: 5,470. 

In 2020: 5,245.

Factor increase of canceled listings reported on the San Francisco MLS from 2019 to 2020: +1.78

Number of times the term “reduced,” (or similar variant) used in MLS agent or property marketing comments in 2019: 148. 

In 2020: 222.

Number of times the word “mask,” appeared in the MLS for homes that sold in 2019: 1 (reference to a Castro district house with a Victorian façade that masked a modern house behind). 

In 2020: 301. 

Minimum number of times the term “PEAD,” (the disclosure form required to visit properties during the pandemic) appears in all agent comments for properties listed on the MLS in 2020: 2,394.

In days, median time a property on the market before an offer was accepted in 2019: 17. 

In 2020: 22. 

Decrease in volume of MLS-reported sales volume of existing property sales from 2019 to 2020: -$343,902,822 ($8.9 billion total). 

On a square foot basis, median sale price for properties reported sold in the MLS selling in 2019: $986. For properties selling in 2020: $983. 

Difference between the two years: -$3.

COMING SOON TO YOU: Higher Conforming Loan Limits for 2021 

2021 Conforming Loan Limits
2021 Conforming Loan Limits

Learning how home mortgages work is key in high-value markets like San Francisco. See what the latest developments are with Kevin+Jonathan

Starting the last week of December 2020, conforming loan limits for high-market value areas like San Francisco are going up to more than $822,000 from just over $765,000 for purchases of single-family homes, condominiums and other types of property up to 4-unit buildings. Combined with low mortgage rates and more generous lending allowances (down payment amounts, acceptable credit scores and property conditions among more) conforming conventional loan guidelines and limits impact the entire industry by eating more into the Jumbo loan category and more.

Median home values generally increased in high-cost areas in 2020, driving up the maximum loan limits in many areas. The new ceiling loan limit for one-unit properties in most high-cost areas will be $822,375 — or 150 percent of $548,250.  ...  As a result of generally rising home values, the increase in the baseline loan limit, and the increase in the ceiling loan limit, the maximum CLL will be higher in 2021 in all but 18 counties or county equivalents in the U.S.

SOLD.

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.”

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 space lives large and has a quality feel. 204's updates 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.

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

People need to buy and sell houses no matter when

Kevin+Jonathan In and On the Media

Kevin+Jonathan on the media

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.

The online version of this was published on July 27, 2020, while the print version was published on Sunday, July 26, 2020. Find the online version here.
