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.

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.

368 Elm Street, Unit No. 305

If you have to work from home, then Number 305 at 368 Elm Street is for you. You have a great location — Hayes Valley, Japantown, and a lot of green space are minutes away — and the just-updated unit has a great kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms, in-unit laundry and a big wall of windows that floods the space with sunlight.

305 is in a low-dues building with an elevator, intercom entry and fast Webpass fiber internet from Google. 305 also comes with 2, extra-deep, side-by-side parking spaces. Commuting is made easier because you have a protected turn onto Gough Street and tech shuttle stops are very close too.

305’s floor plan is ideal and feels big. The two bedrooms are separated from each other and the master bedroom has a separate entrance, an oversized closet that’s bigger than most in the City, and a large en suite bathroom with twin floating vanities.

Getting outside is easy too with a roof patio and bbq grill in the building or you can walk 2 minutes to the large 5.6-acre park at the end of the block. You could even take up a new sport at one of the newly refurbished sports fields also at the end of the block.

The area is changing and evolving with Hayes Valley growing closer, new luxury buildings coming online and Van Ness Avenue getting a complete makeover. Take the opportunity to make 305 yours now and you’ll be well positioned for the brighter days that lie ahead.

IN CONTRACT.

180 Corwin Street, Unit No. 2

Sweeping, dramatic and hypnotizing views of San Francisco’s gleaming skyline define 180 Corwin for sure, but so do its modern luxe finishes, proximity to the Castro and Noe Valley as well as its cul-de-sac location next to the equally dramatic Kite Hill open space that effectively serves as the home’s 2.5-acre backyard (yes, true to its name, people actually fly kites here). Unit 2 at 180 Corwin has 2 beds, 1 bath, 1-car garage parking and deeded storage. Unit 2’s incredible views change so much during the day, varying from an alpine meadow, a forest of houses to a dramatic twinkling skyline at night.

Updated for sale, Unit 2’s kitchen has all-new appliances, countertops, hardware and lighting. Just-refinished warm-feeling matte oak floors that absorb and recast luminous sunlight during the day to give the space that sought-after light and breezy feel. At night, the skyline’s sparkling lights brilliantly contrast with the warm rich light from newly updated recessed LED lighting. There’s a great public/private layout with the kitchen and open living/dining/patio area on one side with the oversized master bedroom and guest bedroom, each with recessed lighting and generous closets, on the other.

The building completed its seismic retrofitting last year and is part of the condo conversion schedule that should resume soon.

Our $1,200/sqft San Francisco Market: A Read on the Market – April 30, 2019

Our $1,100/sqft Spring Market: San Francisco’s Real Estate Market’s Big Turn Around Thanks to the New York Times

Perspective from those who value properties professionally: the appraisers. How a single article might have sparked the 2019 San Francisco price surge. The coming IPO's impact on San Francisco Real Estate is already here.

The fact our listing in NoPa at 1608 Fulton Street went into contract just 4 days after we launched it on the MLS, should be indicative of the transformed nature of San Francisco’s 2019 market. Just last fall prices were slowing and properties were taking longer to sell. That’s because the stock markets fell, forest fires burned and literally choked the air outside and everyone was more focused on the midterm election.

This spring’s market couldn’t be more different with multiple offers and surging prices. We chatted with the appraiser who came to our listing today and here are some takeaways from our chat:

  • Comps (comparable sales) from last fall aren’t helping sustain or support this year’s sales,
  • Appraisers working today are really looking long and hard for comparable sales to justify current contract prices. While stretching last year’s sales data is one way of getting that task done, reaching out to other agents and appraisers for properties that are currently pending is the other way to do it.
  • As true with years past, no buyers (at least the ones who actually get houses into contract) are including appraisal contingencies in their offers.
  • Average per-square foot prices for properties under $2,000,000 in San Francisco are now hovering around $1,100/sqft with smaller units pushing into the $1,700/sqft range. We’re still not quite at the $2,000/sqft range…. yet.
  • And yes, the low-list price-crazy-contract-price game is still going on out there with agents still listing their properties for less than market value which is intended to draw attention and multiple offers competing with each other.

The reason for this big surge of purchases and prices?

The appraiser we talked to today attributes this push to that same New York Times IPO-about-to-hit-San-Francisco-real-estate article as being the trigger for this overnight transformation of our marketplace.

Indeed, buyers are taking the hint of trying to buy before waves of IPO monies are freed up, but as we’ve said before, that time is still in the offing.

What Does this Mean to Me?

Buyer or Seller alike will feel the IPO impact, ask us how.

So how might this surge impact your position? Ask us how.

327 Ordway, San Francisco
Just-Updated, Sunny + Warm Home

327 Ordway sits atop the hill between the Portola and Vis Valley and is a surprising 3-bed, 2-bath, 1-car parking home with a large backyard that’s been updated with a sense of style that allows for flexible living. Thoughtful details maximize space like brand-new barn-door closet doors or the slim, sleek LED dining room light. The mix of crafted floor tiles, vintage wood floors, new wood doors and satin brass hardware, creates a warm and engaging mix of materials. The lower space is shown as a bedroom but can be used as a second family room and is, in any case, a cozy space with its own bathroom, laundry closet and large patio slider that allows for indoor/outdoor living. The yard has fruit trees, grape vines, and a large garden shed and great play area.

Listed at: $1,095,000

Sellers received an offer for $1,050,000 with us but turned it down. They hired another agent after renting the home for a bit and that agent came nowhere close to the offer we got and the house closed at $985,000.
