Living the San Francisco Dream

Studios for sale - Location, Location, Location

There is a wide variety of housing types in San Francisco, and with space at a premium and prices high, it's not surprising that condominiums make up a large part of the housing in the areas closest to downtown. I've often written about some different options, like these 3 in the Middle Polk neighborhood or these a couple of blocks to the west.

We've all heard the old saw about "Location! Location! Location!" when it comes to real estate, and that's our focus today.

Today we head a few more blocks to the west deep into the heart of Pacific Heights, past beautiful Lafayette Park, past the Fillmore neighborhood shopping area, and over to Alta Plaza Park (which I consider the sister of Lafayette Park) and focus on two studio condos. These are located a block apart, one on Scott Street, directly across from Alta Plaza and the other right on Jackson, across the street from the Town School for Boys. These are premier locations, without a doubt.

2311 Scott Street #3 is a large, remodeled studio of about 510 square feet, with a separate den or office area. Lovely Palladian windows look across the street to Alta Plaza so if you have a dog (2 pets allowed here, no weight limitation) you're in luck. A garage with 1-car parking and extra storage areas is included. Offered for sale by the Paragon Real Estate Group for $745,000, I'm ready to help a buyer investigate a possible purchase.

Around the corner, at 2727 Jackson Street, Unit #1 is a studio offered for sale by Alain Pinel Realtors. Reported to be built in 1900, you'll feel history in this elegant neighborhood. This studio has been renovated, features an exceedingly large kitchen, and a great room for living. High ceilings, a gas fireplace and period details adds to the charm of living here. The ownership is a tenancy-in-common (TIC) which is a variation in home ownership I'm happy to explain to potential buyers.

No matter what type of housing is right for you, it's here, and often at a monthly cost less than renting.

Is buying right for you? Give me a call, let's talk.
