2739 Larkin
Having been purchased for $2,650,000 in October 2010, 2739 Larkin Street resold for $2,725,000 five months later.
Returned to the market this past September listed for $2,895,000 touting “sweeping views of the GG Bridge & bay – think America’s cup!,” the music for the make whole game of musical chairs appears to have stopped for the three-bedroom Russian Hill home as its sale closed escrow today with a reported contract price of $2,600,000.
Call it 5 percent ($125,000) less today than ten months ago, 2 percent ($50,000) below its late 2010 sale, all on an apples-to-apples-to-apples basis.

  1. OMG she was lucky to buy before all those IPOs LOL!!
    $400,000.00 lost in 6 months on SF real estate. Never gets old.
    [Editor’s Note: Since corrected above, the decline in value was $125,000 over ten months. The cost of selling, including commissions and transfer tax, was likely around $150,000 for a total loss of $275,000 (give or take).]

  2. $2,895,000 was the list price, not the last sales price. The last sale price was $2,725,000. So the loss was $170k in one year, not $295k in six months.
    Might seem like picking nits to some…
    [Editor’s Note: Great catch and since corrected, cheers.]

  3. Maybe I’m picking nits here, but isn’t the loss on the order of about $250-275k? 2.725 purchase minus 2.6 sale price minus agent commission and other selling costs.
