2600 Lyon Street

As a number of readers referenced 2600 Lyon in the discussion of 3299 Baker, we thought we’d add a link (and a little background).

Listed with Coldwell Banker for $8,485,000 over seven months ago, 2600 Lyon has since had a change of brokers (now Sotheby’s) and expectations (currently listed at $6,500,000).

Plug in tomorrow to find out why we keep highlighting these multi-million properties (and why you should take notice). And yes, there’s more to it than that whole “real estate porn” thing.

    “Plug in” tomorrow to find out why we keep highlighting these multi-million properties (and why you should take notice). And yes, there’s more to it than that whole “real estate porn” thing.
    Great, I’ll be glad to seethis, since I grow weary of constantly reading about properties that will be forever beyond my means.

    I like this property, but at closer to $5.5 than $6.5. I’m not sure what SocketSite has in store for us, but I’d love it if they were to create a similar (Cii) database of multi-million-mansion properties with historical sale and price per sq ft, etc… There has to be less than 5000 total homes that fit this category, but it would be highly valuable.

    Phil, if you grow weary of looking at expensive properties, stop looking at them.

    $1million or $10million, it doesn’t make any difference to me; I can’t afford either. But I must say, I do enjoy looking at these homes. Good Lord, they’re gorgeous, and hey, they’re only 6 lucky Lotto numbers away…

    I would look at them less often if they didn’t seem to be the sole focus of San Francisco real estate blogs, though I also realize that the concept of moderately-priced, affordable homes and condos no longer exist in the world of San Francisco real estate and development.

    Who wants to read a blog full of 2bd/1bth TIC’s in the Haight? 🙂

    As the person on this forum who coined the phrase “Real Estate Porn”, I just want to point out from recent news stories that the people who seem to decry any kind of porn the most loudly are the ones who seem to be imbibing in it more than anyone.
    I’d hate to see what kind of e-mail messages that “Phil” above has sent to any of his former real estate agents, but I doubt they’d be suitable for publication on a family website.
    TICs give the bread and butter pulse of the market and the real estate porn keeps it spicy.

    Ok, I was expecting a post on the mega properties today based on the note in the original posting here. 🙂

    eddy – So were we! Breaking the news of reductions at The Infinity, however, prevented us from publishing our “why you should take notice” piece as planned. We’ll do our best to get it online by tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for “plugging in.” (And for keeping us honest…)
    p.s. it’s now online:

    Looks like that price and broker change worked on 2600 Lyon worked as it’s under contract

    Or the dedicated article in the paper doesn’t hurt the marketing effort. Congrat’s to the agent! And the owners, a nice little 6.495M profit 🙂

    I’m normally against “dwellification” from a taste standpoint, those designs usually don’t age well.
    This is just very well done.
    At $6.5M, I like this better than some of the more expensive properties up the hill. I think this home is a good value relative to the size, location, presence, and finish.
    That said, the improvements alone must have broken the $1000 per square foot level. Perhaps more?
