65 Hermann Street

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.

Because virtual tours are all the rage (by necessity) these days, here’s the tour for Unit 305. It’s pretty neat and accurate. Note: Mr. Raffi (the black lab) is excluded from the sale).  [This tour will expire by late 2020]

SOME STUFF TO KNOW.

To that extent possible, the information here is copyright protected. But other information such as links, articles and the like are only reproduced here for market education purposes. Remember to research all matters discussed here to your own satisfaction.

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.

TELL EVERYONE about us
NOT JUST ANY NEWSLETTER, BUT ONE YOU’LL WANT TO READ

This isn’t the newsletter that tells you it’s time to clean out your gutters or that springtime is a groundbreaking time for florals, but this newsletter will tell you how properties actually sold and why. The stories behind the numbers. When a property was a fixer/flipper, when a list price was a just a teaser price and what new, coming-soon or off-market listings you’ll want to keep your eye on.

So join the newsletter that 630 other ‘in the know’ readers have joined and read regularly and what one developer calls the “bible” of newsletters, what another seller giddily waits for and nudges her husband when it appears in the inbox and what others have said is hands down the best in the business, by signing up below. You won’t regret it and your information stays us. Not even the folks at Vanguard Properties get it.

If It’s Tuesday, It’s Broker Tour Day in San Francisco — See What Us Brokers are Seeing

Recall Tuesday is when us brokers go around the city in a whirlwind tour of each other’s open houses — the speed dating of open houses. Here is the list of what we’re able to see tomorrow.

Remember, you’re welcome to visit the open houses too without me being there (although if someone gives you a hard time, tell them you’re working with Kevin Ho and I’m running late — which is not too much of a stretch!) The opens are grouped by geography with new listings on the hour and repeat listings on the half hour.

Also, D/S/C means District, Subdistrict and Classification (1 = single family homes, 2C = condos, 2T = TICs, 3+ = multiunit). Here are my observations:

  • This week there are a couple of income buildings on the north side of town as well as one over in Noe Valley and another at 18th and Mission and a pair in Potrero all in the mid $1M range.
  • There are a couple of single family fixers — one on Bush Street and the other on Oak that don’t necessarily have fixer prices.
  • For fixers with fixer prices see the one in Bernal Heights and the other in Dogpatch (offers due on Wed). There’s a rather unique larger single-family home smack dab in the middle of UCSF’s Parnassus Campus for $1.5M.
  • There are some big houses in Noe Valley, Glen Park, and Corona Heights with that ultra modern chic one on the 1600 block of Church Street still being on the market for a mere $3.5M.
  • If you want to see those units at 3500 Valencia that have been selling for $1000+/sqft (without parking in some cases) tomorrow is your chance as they’re about 60% sold out.
  • There are a few potentially cute single family homes in the Sunset near West Portal and a pair in the Miraloma area and one over in Sunnyside that looks interesting as well.
  • There is a house on Chenery that has a below $1M price tag and another single family home in St Francis Wood for $1.575M (but it’s from the agent who regularly underprices everything by 15% quite irritatingly. Oh, and there’s a huge house on in SFW for $6.8M+ too
  • There are also a pair of income units for $349,000 and 375,000 respectively in Diamond Heights Village that could get about $2000-$2500 a month in rent studio with parking for these condos on the market that could be a nice little income stream.

Kevin’s Picks and Updates of the Week for San Francisco Real Estate 2/2/13 Ed.

Go Niners (next week)! Go See Your Next House on Saturday or Early Sunday

GO NINERS! (Bet of the Week: Niners, by 6)

Hello! Happy Weekend!. Welcome to Kevin’s Open House Picks of the Week — although this week I’m picking our 49ers. 

Just a year ago interest rates for 30-year fixed mortgages averaged 4.18% This year they are averaging 3.5% while the median price for San Francisco residential properties has shot up 39% since then. While that median price is a hard number to rely upon because inventory has changed — fewer foreclosures, lower inventory generally — one certainty is that interest rates will float down like a feather but will shoot up like a rocket and fast. And with the recovery starting nationally the risks of inflation will almost certainly lead to interest rate hikes. So while prices are higher, your overall cost and tradeoff between having more money today on hand versus money tomorrow or a decade from now can be measured by whether or not you get to make that assessment from your home.

Today’s market demands decisive action. Bidding $20,000 or $30,000 over an asking price — itself an inaccurate almost irrelevant value — is almost pointless and expected. In fact, we’ve started to see what they do in New York: the “suggested price.” Remember, market value only equals what someone (hopefully not someone else) is willing to pay for a property, which explains price flexibility especially if a property is not listed on the MLS. In fact, there is thinking that a third of property that will change hands in 2013 will be done off-market; all the more reason to have someone plugged in like me working for you.

Stories of the Week:

  1. 310 Townsend, a big one bedroom loft in that historic restoration building next to CalTrain, that was listed at $799,000 went in to the $800,000s — for a one bedroom!
  2. 2776 Golden Gate, a 2 unit building with one unit being tenant-occupied was listed at $999,000, received 6 offers and will close nearly 20% over the asking price.
  3. 1015 Florida, the single family home in need of some TLC in the hot Inner Mission area, listed at $665,000, received at least 14 offers and entered escrow at a “substantial” amount over the asking price.
  4. 1610 Sacramento, 3 bedroom Nob Hill condos with more than 1200 sq ft, which was exclusively previewed last weekend to Vanguard agents and their clients, already has the top-floor unit in contract at more than $1,000 a sq ft.
  5. 411 Valencia, the last 2-bedroom condo available went into contract over its asking price of $759,000 with multiple offers.

And see pictures of many the homes I preview for you at Photobucket or on iCloud or YouTube.

This week there seems to be a lot of single-family homes and larger condos at the $2M price point. I’ve always said that the $2.3M – $2.9M price point is the perfect price in SF as you’ll get the most ideal home, or amenity-filled condo in areas like Pac Heights/Marina, South Beach (condo), Noe Valley/Eureka Valley, Haight (single family homes) Also we’re seeing more fixers pop on to the market too. So, take a look here and also be sure to go to www.kevinho.org to see the upcoming broker tour sheet for Tuesday.

My business comes from you and yours, so please feel free to pass this along to your friends, colleagues, pet walkers, etc. Thanks! Kevin Ho

Picks of the Week

 TAKE NOTE: Many of the open houses this weekend are on Saturday or are EARLIER on SUNDAY.

(a .pdf version will appear when clicked)

Stop the presses: read about a great opportunity about the Castro for single-family house renovation under $1.1 million

Single-family home opportunity at 15th St. and 14th streets — great home with views space and potential for under $1.1 million

You know I’d only post during the day if there was a worthwhile opportunity. And here’s one I URGE you to consider as offers are due FRIDAY – It’s a single-family house on 15th St. at 2412 15th St near where 15th splits off into 14th St. under Roosevelt Street; basically it’s the plateau Where the one-way street turns into a two-way street.

But more importantly it’s about 2000 square-feet single-family house at $1,049,000. It has 3R zoning and has a side driveway leading to a yard an carriage house in the back where you park or create a studio.

The nice thing about this is that there isn’t much interest yet only three disclosure packages are out as the agent said the seller had came on the market rather quickly. Previously tenant-occupied, delivered vacant.

There is a twilight tour on Wednesday evening at 5 o’clock to 6 o’clock.

Foundation work has been done in parts, furnace replaced, finished space downstairs — but almost doesn’t matter as you would have to really redo the house in any case I believe. The value is in the land yes and the location plus the footprint of the house.

But of course we all care about the house. So here are your options: It could be a fixer where you add and renovate kitchens and bathrooms and update some systems, change out floors add fixtures etc. where you end up with a fairly decent house where you would spend 500 or $600 per square foot to acquire the property and another $200-300/ft to renovate or you could do a complete and total gut job when you turn the house into a spectacular high-end dream house Spending four or $500 per square foot above the acquisition cost leading to $1000/square-foot. This may seem pricey of course, but we’re starting to see that more and more in the city. Consider that the a single-family Victorian down the street is asking for $1079/sq ft (2295 15th St).

Let me know what you think and please do consider it as it would be unfortunate if one of you all missed out on this.

Thanks,

Kevin
