Condos and co-ops in San Francisco are selling, and selling high and quickly.
A case in point is a unit at 2100 Pacific Avenue in San Francisco.
Unit #1A is a very large (approximately 1750 sq.ft.) , 2-bedroom, 2-bath unit in an elegant co-op building in Pacific Heights, listed at $1,250,000. HOA fees are high at over $1,000/month; plus an extra monthly payment over $100 to the reserve fund. Since this is a stock cooperative ownership, a 50% down payment is required; the buyer must be approved by the Board, too.
I toured this unit a couple of weeks ago before it went under contract; it now has a pending sale and a new owner likely will be enjoying taking up residence soon.
