Reflections on the week From Kevin and Open Homes Picks.
As we enter the first week of August traditionally inventory goes down as people take their vacation. Just look around the city and you’ll hear languages of all kinds of people descend on San Francisco.
But can you state the case is different. People have heard that inventory is still shockingly low – and it is – and are now making best efforts to put their homes on the market.
Last weekend, I helped one client win a NoPa condo that was on the market for less than 48 hours because we used a WiFi Hotspot I had along and skyped with her so that her first walk-through of the property was live and virtual!
Great Traffic on Duboce:
Pink is In!
II had a great response for the advance opportunity for my latest exclusive listing for the pink shotgun Victorian located at 473 Duboce Avenue. Even bicycling icon Gary Fisher stopped by to see if this home could be his next pad. His verdict: “Cool Pad!” See more here.
Storrie-Ord Garden Party 8/18/12, 1:00 p.m.
And here is one event invitation that you should consider:
Showing off the best of the San Francisco can-do spirit, the neighbors in upper Eureka Valley got together to reclaim a small parcel in their neighborhood that had become blighted. Instead of accepting the status quo, a group of neighbors near Ford and story streets got together and coupon city resources along with their own blood, sweat and tears to turn the area into the beautiful community garden it is today.
So come celebrate the Grand Opening of the Storrie-Ord Garden with us and Superviser Scott Wiener and neighborhood folks on Saturday, August 18, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at the park, which is located at 18th and Storrie Streets. Event sponsored by Kevin Ho, Vanguard Properties.
