3640 21st Street, San Francisco
Dolores Heights Fixer-Upper

3640 21st Street has spectacular skyline views, big potential and a coveted Dolores Heights location purchased above Dolores Park in between Church and Sanchez Streets.
On the market for the first time since the 1950s, the home sits on the view side of this iconic street — right next to the Christmas tree house and has spectacular postcard views of San Francisco‘s shimmering downtown skyline from all three levels. The house has a small entry courtyard, detached garage and sits on an extra-deep, 113-foot parcel and is most certainly a fixer-upper. Appraiser has measured the main house at 1,917 sqft and tax records show the lot has 2,848 sqft of area.

Most Over Asking Award: St Patrick’s Day 2018 Edition

Most Over Asking Award: St Patrick's Day 2018 Edition

Golden in Golden Gate Heights: 2319 14th Avenue

What's remarkable about this Inner Parkside/Golden Gate Heights fixer house? Its closing price of $1.6M for starters and the fact that it got 30 offers!

The fact that San Francisco real estate agents underprice their property listings isn’t a surprise as 75% of listings in San Francisco sell for more than their list price. But there are times when underpricing’s results are even surprising to us agents.

This week’s winner comes from a ho-hum, vintage Golden Gate Heights/Sunset special. 

Having been in the same family since it was built in 1939, this 2-bed, 1.5-bath vintage house on 14th Avenue has about 1300 sqft currently and sits on a very large 3800-sqft parcel (the usual parcel size for the City is about 25 x 100 ft). The house was cleaned up for sale with the parquet floors being redone, the vintage 1940s/50s kitchen cleaned up and the oh-so-vintage knotty pine den sparkling. Despite having original materials like the almost-certain asbestos floors, asbestos-wrapped heating ducts in the unfinished garage and a (peaceful) death on property, the 2319 received 30 offers and closed well above its $995,000 list price at a $1,200/sqft+ price of $1,600,000 — some 161% of list price. Why? Perhaps the house really is “special” (according to the marketing remarks) or perhaps its proximity to West Portal or maybe fevered competitive bidding did what it was supposed to do. Either way, it’s confirmation that the market in San Francisco is as strong as ever. It’ll be fascinating to see what happens to 2319 next.

533 Steiner Street, San Francisco
A Rare Opportunity for a Rare Space in Alamo Square

Lovingly maintained, 533 Steiner marries architectural heritage with contemporary design sensibilities producing a result that is both beautiful and livable in this most vibrant of San Francisco neighborhoods that celebrates big homes like this  — the famed Painted Ladies are just steps away after all.

There’s ample closet space and deeded storage. Garage leased parking is available across the street at your option.   

And while you can cozy up at home, the amenities on Hayes, Divisadero, and Haight Streets are also steps away as are green spaces and dog parks at Alamo Square and Duboce Park. Make 533 Steiner yours while you can.
