Lottie, huge difference in the price of condos in San Francisco and where I live in Middletown, CT.

Those are some hefty condo prices but not all people are right for that type of structured living.

This is good information for anyone thinking of buying a condo in your area.

Good morning Lottie. Terrific run down of condos in San Francisco. Too rich for me but I enjoyed it.

I'm thinking these prices are more in line with Manhattan than with most other spots, George Souto and Sheila Anderson - other price points are available (lower and higher both) in this neighborhood as well as others. These 3 interested me since they are so close together, and so very different from one another

Hello Ed Silva - condo living isn't for everyone, or not at all points of a life. We traded living in a single-family home in the suburbs for life in a condo in the midst of the city after our granddaughter was grown and off to college. We're loving it.

Good morning Gita Bantwal - I find the variance in condos (price, size and style) fascinating.

Now I know why I hear so much talk about San Francisco's pricing Lottie Kendall 

Sorry about the tech problems on my post this morning!

As high as property prices are here, it's often better to buy than to rent Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington

Very nice Lottie, I like everything about it (except the price tag).

This is great information to share with those planning a move to the area.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) over 4 years ago

It's good for potential buyers to know the variety of condo prices and styles in any given neighborhood in the City, Roy Kelley .

Hi Noah Seidenberg - price points are definitely high, but there are ways of finding less costly condo options - foregoing parking is one and very doable for many; buying a TIC (tenancy in common) unit is another.

Lottie Kendall - Great information (loved the pricing info) for those starting their San Francisco home search!

Pricing info is an important element when searching for a home. It's also good to know there are a number of price points, not all this high. How's everything at beautiful Lake Tahoe, Laura Allen, Lake Tahoe - Truckee Real Estate for Sale

Nice expose' on available condos, Lottie. I can see that it is getting more and more challenging to be a new home buyer.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 4 years ago

High prices aren't the only challenge facing home buyers in San Francisco and the entire area, Debbie Reynolds - lack of housing and extreme competition from other buyers makes it extra tough.
