Living the San Francisco Dream


San Francisco condos and co-ops are selling

Condos and co-ops in San Francisco are selling, and selling high and quickly.

2100 Pacific Avenue, SF

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.

If you're wanting to purchase a condo or co-op in San Francisco, you'll want to have all your ducks in a row, and be ready to make a decision quickly when the right opportunity arises. When you are ready to live your San Francisco dream, let me know; I'll be happy to help to you find a spot that's right for you.

Lottie,  That condo is just a few feet from where my son lives.  I know the area well.

I would love to win the lottery and buy my son a nice place like that.  I am sure the inside is stunning!

Kathleen, this is a classic old building with beautiful period details - high ceiling, wood floors, decorative moldings, ornate details. The unit is huge, with a remodeled kitchen and baths. A good home, indeed.

Joe, thanks for the kind words. This area of San Francisco--Pacific Heights, Russian Hill, North Beach, Cow Hollow--has many great condo and co-op buildings, some with incredible views, and walking distances to shops and services.

Hi Lottie: Did you see the Sac Bee today? Did a comparison of what $800,000 would buy in the Bay area versus Sacramento. Pretty much a dog there, was the gist of it; do you think that's true?

Lottie, I've only sold one co-op they aren't that many here in the valley. Whoever the the lucky buyer is they will really have to want to live there with 50% down and $1100 in monthly fees. I'm sure it's well worth the asking price.

John, thanks! Hope you had an awesome weekend with lots of fun mixed with productive work.

Elizabeth, one can find a nice 2 or 3 bedroom condo in a nice neighborhood in the low $800,000's in San Francisco; sometimes a nice smallish house out in the Avenues.  On the Peninsula $800,000 will get one a good townhouse in many cities. Occasionally bargains are found in that price range. I'm working now with first-time buyers for the Peninsula with a price range of $500,000-$700,000 - we'll be able to find condos for them.

Nancy, the co-op discussed here is definitely not an entry-level place. I'll write about others again soon.
