Open House Recommendations for Sunday June 19, 2011

1499 Masonic,  2 pm – 4 pm, $1895,000


Why is this house still on the market?  This is a great property with a beautiful back garden.  It is a pie shaped, the garden is huge and very unusual for SF.  The interior has been renovated and is in good taste.  It is very light and bright, open living areas.



1155 Washington, 2 pm to 4 pm, $1,298,000


Great Fixer with incredible view located in the heart of Nob Hill.  It has a one car garage and could be the perfect single family home.


1830 Mason, 2 pm to 4 pm, $850,000


This building was completely re-built.  Located steps from North Beach this TIC unit is excellent.  It is very contemporary.  The building has 5 units and only two are not in contract.  Rumor has it the top unit sold for cash.  The only draw back that I see with this unit does not have outside space.



1254 Washington, 2 pm to 4 pm, $1,249,000


Great view deck in this unit.  It is on the top floor of this building which means several flights of stairs to get there and it has leased parking, those are the negatives.  Now for the reward once you climb those stairs; remodeled bathrooms and kitchen and a large sunny deck with postcard views of San Francisco.


156-158 Sproule, 2 pm to 4 pm, $1,199,000


This vacant 2-unit building should be sold.  The price is still a bit to high to be able to provide a good return as rental property but, at $1,100,000 it is a good deal.  It needs cosmetics, a garage and roof deck but, I think the investment would offer big returns.
