Living the San Francisco Dream


San Francisco condos - Nob Hill, Russian Hill, Pacific Heights

Have you wondered what condos on Nob Hill, Russian Hill, or Pacific Heights might be like?

Tuesdays are broker tour days in San Francisco, which offers a great opportunity for Realtors® to preview a number of listings for clients in an efficient manner. Here's a snapshot of 3 different condos I previewed several weeks ago. There are many other choices, of course, some smaller some more grand, but these all tell a story.

1268 Green Street - located on Russian Hill, close to the vibrant upper Polk Street neighborhood with its restaurants and shopping. Behind the rather bland exterior is a remodeled 2-bedroom, 1-bath condo, with a remodeled kitchen, inside laundry, parking for 2 cars (a rarity!) and a deck. The unit is flooded with light and is spacious in feel. The list price: $1,099,000. After 15 days on the market, there is a pending sale. 1268 Green St, SF

1865 Clay Street #2 - just off Van Ness Avenue in Pacific Heights, this half-floor unit is in a 1920s style building in the midst of converting to condo ownership. It is a spacious 3-bedroom, 2-bath home, plus an office, remodeled in 2007. Garage parking for 1 car and extra storage, too. Not far from Whole Foods and the knoll-top Lafayette Park, it's close to major bus lines, too. The list price: $1,475,000. After only 11 days on the market, there is a pending sale.

1310 California Street - This is Nob Hill living, mid-way between Van Ness Avenue and the top of the hill, blocks away from Grace Cathedral, Huntington Park, Trader Joe's, Polk Street and Whole Foods, with the iconic cable car running past the front! In a beautifully maintained Edwardian building you'll find a complete remodel with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 fireplaces, a chef's kitchen. There's a shared roof-top deck with views of the Golden Gate bridge, the bay and cityscape. Parking for 2 cars is an amazing plus in this location. The list price: $1,749,000. After 14 days on the market, there is a pending sale.

I think you can easily see the trend here: properties in these highly-desired areas that are in great move-in condition are selling quickly. As a buyer, one needs to be prepared to move quickly when the right place comes on the market, the one you wish to call home. There are steps to take to make that happen - it all starts with a dream, the desire to live your San Francisco dream.

Good luck and success.

Some of those are gorgeous! I was in San Fran last year for NAR, and loved the views of the city from that area (although the hike up was just that: a hike!).

Hi Lottie, I have very fond memories of my time spent in San Francisco.  These prices actually didn't seem quite as bad as I expected to be honest.

It's really neat that Tuesdays are Broker Tour Days.. we do not have that here.   What beautiful condos are available in your area!

Thanks, Lou.

Carol, we do a lot of "hiking" up and down the San Francisco hills -- part of the reason I love living here

Scott, the prices for these 3 condos mentioned here are more expensive than many--but then, they are larger, nicer condos than some. It will be interesting to see what the sales prices are.

Judi-broker tour is an efficient way to see many properties in a short period of time. Fun, too, because I'm always meeting agents I've had transactions with, or haven't seen for a long time.

Jeff, today's tour I'm dubbing "the view tour." I hope to write about it soon.

Good morning Lottie. Thank you for taking us along on the tour. Your market is just amazing, no one more knowledgeable about everything that is going on. Well done.

Good morning, Joe. I can't wait to write about yesterday's tour. I only had time to check out 4 places, but what fabulous places they are!
