Measuring 714 square feet, the one-bedroom unit #435 at 555 Fulton Street, which overlooks the building’s tranquil interior courtyard, sold for $745,000 or roughly $1,043 per square foot in March of 2021.

Located “steps away from San Francisco’s renowned performing arts venues, dining, boutiques, and charming streets for leisurely strolls,” with a new Trader Joe’s now an elevator ride away, along with a rooftop terrace with sweeping views, the Hayes Valley condo has just returned to the market priced at $725,000, a sale at which would be “at asking!” and “over $1,000 per square foot!” but down 2.7 percent on an apples-to-apples basis.

If you think you know the “surging market” for Hayes Valley condos, now’s another chance to tell. Keep in mind that the frequently misreported index for “San Francisco” condo values is “still up!” over the same period of time.

  1. Having lived in a unit facing an interior courtyard, they are far from tranquil. They are echo chambers and you basically become a resident of all the other units facing the courtyard.

    1. Is there any room for landscaping in the courtyard? Some greenery would dampen the noise.

    2. It may face “inwards”, but it doesn’t seem to have any units across from it, so probably not as much echo as other units.

    3. People, people!! Where are your imaginations ? Is this not the perfect set-up for a Rear Window scenario? The lightwell courtyard even seems to have the requisite planter boxes for an inquisitive dog to…uhm :”dig something up” (They’re rather narrow, but I think a clever sort should be able to work around that…are there still some hardware stores in the neighborhood?)

  2. This is the same developer that built ‘Slavery Towers’ in San Jose. Not sure I would buy anything developed by them.

  3. Waiting to see if the opening of the Trader Joe’s in this building impacts the value of the units.

    1. There are five other units in this building (yes, yet another Stanley Saitowitz Special) currently on the market. Check out Unit 427, on the same floor as this one, and also 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom but slightly larger at 728 ft.² and asking $749,000. Last traded in the first quarter of 2021 for $799,000.
