IN THE KNOW.

What’s News for March 29, 2015

Will the Shoe Fit?    

Taking the time to see which buyers fit which property is something that we’ve been doing since the start and it’s gaining traction and results despite today’s hectic market

Apparently the new remake of Cinderella stresses the value of courage and kindness. How does this have any relevance to real estate? Well, this week more than many recently, shows that when people take the time to be kind and courageous that they get results. Indeed, our own clients proved this to be the case with their successful offer for a large single-family house with commanding the news and an amazingly landscaped Zen Garden. The property at 624 Congo was listed at $1.495 million was advertised as being the seller’s true and real price. Almost anachronistic, our clients went and saw the property, taking their time in the process.

Together we examined the ins and outs of the property, identified possibilities and opportunities for future expansion and personalization and, in the end, we all really understood what the seller wanted. And in this case, because the seller has been in the home for such a long time and is relocating to Palm Springs, he really wants certainty and clarity so that he can take the time to move his life down the coast.

Indeed, a rent back of just a few weeks after closing escrow is what got the property. Our cover letter and terms helped as well. What’s more we already know but there’s a back up in at a higher amount. And, from earlier this spring our success on Steiner Street and beyond.

And Some Bigger Trends

Limited Inventory Creates Opportunity for Sellers

A strengthening employment market is expected to offset implications of an expected rate hike in the 3rd quarter. A recent Reuters poll forecast the 30-year mortgage rate at 4% this year, and approximately 4.5% next year. The 30-year mortgage rate currently stands at 3.76%. Sales volume continues to be hampered by low inventory levels and affordability issues. Sales volume in February was at its lowest level in twelve months. Inventory in San Francisco is at a three-year low. As a result, homebuyers are bidding approximately five to six percent over list prices.

Neighborhood Values

Bayview/Hunters Point is experiencing high levels of appreciation, largely due to massive redevelopment efforts at The San Francisco Shipyard. The precipitous decline in Noe Valley’s median sale price results from a concentration of higher priced single family home sales in the prior versus current period, and is therefore not necessarily an indication of actual price depreciation.

MARKET STATS.

What Closed Over the 7 Past Days in San Francisco

Congrats to our Buyers!

Congrats to our clients Varsha and Navin (and Lia) on their successful purchase of this newly remodeled, 4-5-bed, 3-bath, 2300+ sqft home with a terraced grass yard, hardwood floors, new appliances, opened up center terrace lightwell and location. We went in preemptively and won the property early, thus ending their months’ long search.

Congratulations to our Seller!

We wanted to congratulate our seller at 1643 44th Avenue for closing escrow on this sale. She first contacted us in November 2014 and we helped her out going above and beyond a simple marketing plan and we created a detailed life plan for her. A lot of paint, hard work and moving 15 years and four kids out of the house to her new place over the holidays. The market was waiting for this home and we had more than 300 people through each open house and sent out more than 40 disclosure packages. We received two preemptive offers and, on the offer date, received three more. In the end, we ended up selling the property for $960,000 – some 120% over the list price. Given the fact that the comparable sales suggested a sale price $900,000 for house that was done and that this house is essentially a fixer, the $960,000 result was it successful one. We worked with the buyers, buyers agent, appraiser and others to make sure that everything worked out – and it did.

For the past 7 days (March 22-29, 2015) we saw 120 transactions close escrow as reported in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) here in the City (9 more than the same period the week before). Here are the numbers:

Single-family homes: 56 sold (22 more than last week)
Condominiums, Tenancy in Common/Co-Ops: 51 (-8)
2- to 4-unit buildings: 7 (-10)
5+ unit buildings: 1 (+1)
Commercial: 3 (+2)

This week’s Most-Over-Asking-List-Price Single-Family House Award goes to the fixer in Bernal Heights at 99 Ellsworthwhich drew throngs of people through including yours truly and your fellow buyers. The home is, well, a fixer. It’s my thought that it would take at least $800,000 of work to turn the house into something spectacular; $400,000 for something decent with the foundation alone requiring $200,000 worth of rebuilding if not more as the home is at the bottom of a hill and had major cracks in it. Not to mention an outdated and potentially unsafe Federal Pacific Electric panel, the fact it was tilting toward the back, is on a steep slope and short lot (just 1700 sqft) and that it needs new, well, everything. That being said someone clever can take this current 1250 sqft, 2-bed, 1.5 (horrid) bath into something amazing. Given that many Bernal homes with 3 beds and 2 baths are now selling for $2M+ it will be interesting to see what this cash buyer does with this property. Listed at $850,000 it closed at $1.425M at $1140/sqft or 167.7% over asking after being on the market for just 12 days. 

Last week’s Most-Over-Asking-Price-Single-Family House was at 3336 23rd St. at Mission Street. Listed at $1,495,000 this 1882-built Italianate Victorian single-family has 3 beds, 2 baths, and 11.5 ft.-high ceilings with 1900 sqft and is of the kind that you’d expect to see over on the north side of town instead of in the Mission. While this home had a yard, office/den on the top floor, clawfoot tub, some upgrades and garage it needs to be updated. With more than 25 packages out the property was bound to get a lot of offers. The winning agent had a gut feeling that it would sell anywhere from $2.2M- $2.25M to which the agent thought that everyone else would be thinking the same thing. So, he advised the clients to got a touch higher and that’s what did the trick. On the offer date 11 offers came back with 4 clustering right at that $2.25M mark. In the end the property closed for $2.306M, cash with a 5-day long escrow at $1187/sqft or 154% over its list price.

 

Caution going forward: Putting Prices in Context — You’ve been hearing about weak inventory from us for months now along with hearing about phenomenal offers and bidding wars over what little is out there.

Beware of making too much about the high prices we’ve seen over the past few weeks as they may prove to be outliers in the grand scheme of things. Higher prices may also indicate a new trend or hot neighborhood. This uncertainty is why working with Kevin+Jonathan is all the more important as we will give you proper context and perspective.

  “We highly recommend him to everyone out there.”

As first time homebuyers (and in SF no less!), Kevin helped my wife and I navigate the process from beginning to end. With his exceptional help, we were able to quickly find a place we loved. As others have mentioned, he is extremely responsive and his prior legal background helped in explaining the various contracts we were looking at. We will definitely use Kevin again when looking for our next home and highly recommend him to everyone out there.

We couldn’t be happier with the service we received from Kevin.

He’s personable, helpful, tech-savvy, and extremely dedicated! Kevin is a very opinionated realtor, but I say this in a good way.  There were many homes that we were willing to bid on in what was a very challenging market, but thankfully Kevin kept our best interests in mind.  Rather than going for a quick close, he actually talked us out of a few homes to make sure we stayed true to our criteria.

Clients Say…

Kevin listened to our story and took the time to understand who we were and our personalities and then asked more than a few more questions to narrow down where we should live.  His advice definitely helped us narrow down the choices and helped us with the all important targeting of our search. [H]e gave us very candid and honest responses to our questions including dissuading us from a couple of apartments that in retrospect would have been completely wrong for us.

When we finally found a place that we unquestionably loved, Kevin guided us through the process in winning a bidding war before the house even made it to its first public open house.  He helped quell a lot of the eleventh hour jitters and pushed us in the helpful way not the overbearing way.  Ultimately, we were absolutely delighted with the purchase and he was integral in the process and could not recommend him more to others.

San Francisco is Worth the Price

kevinhoSFO map You’ve heard it before — San Francisco is a truly international city that will command a premium that attracts international buyers the world over. And while you may hear of growth in Houston, for example, would you really want to live there? Would the rest of the world’s people want to visit? Instead, San Francisco stands out from most of the country (bar NYC) as being tops in real estate and the place to be for tourist and techie alike —18 of the top 25 tech companies are here for example.

Our universities, proximity to emerging markets, financial base and diversity attracts the best and the brightest (although Berkeley and Stanford may have something to do with it). Plus our climate, while foggy sometimes, still beats cold vortexes and heat waves. And because land is scarce here … well, you get the picture.

Did we mention there’s wine here too?
