Talk about quintessential San Francisco. This 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom single family Edwardian home, built in 1911, JUST SOLD for $1,380,000. to my wonderful clients who had set their sites on owning this home, in this specific location. They knew what they wanted and I wanted to be sure they were able to complete their purchase.
Though we made an offer the moment the home re-emerged on the market with new lowered pricing at the beginning of September, the seller wanted to see a full marketing period and set an offer date for a few weeks later. We strongly negotiated to a comfortable offer price and held fast for the offer date with an extended counter offer. Since there are no single family homes for sale in Hayes Valley, there was alot of interest in the home. Hayes Valley has many condominium and TIC offerings, but few single family homes, which made this an extra special value.
We made it to the offer date where there were 3 offers and ours came in toward the top and had excellent terms. A little more negotiating and my clients won the home. I was absolutely delighted that our strategy worked and that they are now to call this home their own. Though there were a few unsure moments during the waiting period which we managed together nicely, this is what I call a successful day in real estate.
Set on a tree lined side street off of Octavia Blvd., steps from the chic shops and restaurants of Hayes Valley’s hip and happening neighborhood, this home is an historical gem. Built in 1911 and approximately 1700 SF, it retains many of the original traditional features like wainscoating, crown mouldings, leaded windows, a charming wood stairwell, a fireplace, formal dining room with original cabinetry and all generously sized bedrooms on the upper level. There is a charming clawfoot bathtub, original wood floors, a basement level with office space and a small yard with mature trees, beds for gardening and a deck off the kitchen.
The current 1 car garage can even be restored for 2 cars which is especially handy in this neighborhood. There have been some upgrades made over 10 years ago, so the home awaits updating with the TLC and refurbishing that will be made by the new owners who are looking forward to the task!
This is a family home just right for my clients, a newly married couple! I look forward to watching their family grow and helping their friends, colleagues and family as I have helped them. Keeping a positive attitude, negotiating smartly and making every advantage for my clients in every transaction means I have happy clients. This is my singular goal! I’m thrilled for them and can picture them happily ensconsed in this very special home.
My Lovely clients, a young family and First time Home Buyers, just purchased their first home at 2118 31st Ave., in the Sunset/Parkside District in San Francisco. During our Sellers Market, homes in the Sunset/Parkside have been receiving high numbers of multiple offers…like 12 and 15 offers on one home, with tremendous overbidding and alot of cash purchases to sweeten the competitiveness of offers.
This 2 Bedroom/ 1 Bath home was a sought after floor plan with a center patio affording lots of light to the home, original hardwood, an updated kitchen, yet well cared for, still in original condition. The past owner lived here for over 50 years and it was being SOLD as a probate with the proceeds to be distributed to family members. This type of transaction presents its’ challenges in terms of lengthy escrow while awaiting for court approval or confirmation for a sale and the “AS IS” purchase. Probates often come to market with a lower value than other regular sales making them a good buy.
In this transaction, my clients over bid the asking price of $569,000 up to $661,101. There were 12 offers, and although ours was not the highest, it had the best terms. My client a contractor, determined the AS IS purchase acceptable and so made little additional terms to entice the Seller to accept their offer, and we Won!. The purchase price was a deal for a gloriously large Sunset home with a basement/garage waiting for development and the possibility to add a level. Perhaps a third floor master suite?
