Sign(s) Of The Times

Tipped by a loyal reader of SocketSite, we dispatched our staff photographer to 308 Presidio post-haste. No fewer than seven “For Sale” signs (there’s another behind the car) that all seem to be screaming “please buy me before the market turns” in unison. Not too surprising that the units...

You Can Relist, But You Can’t Hide

It’s a dirty little secret of the real estate trade: relist (or in this case, change agents) in order to obscure a dramatic price reduction for a property. And it probably worked a lot better before SocketSite (and our readers) joined in the fun. From a reader’s tip: “240... Read More »

Yerba Buena Loft Liquidation?

Yerba Buena Loft Liquidation?

Barbagelata’s two page ad in the most recent Real Estate Times features eighteen properties, of which 28% are Yerba Buena Lofts. Only three units, however, are listed on the MLS (all of which have the same listing agent). Perhaps this is an investor sensing the top of the market... Read More »

199 New Montgomery: Update

It’s been six days since we last reported on 199 New Montgomery unit #1501 and once again the price has been “Reduced!!”. Somehow that original 1.2% reduction failed to generate a ton of interest, so this time it’s down another 2.2% (asking $879k). Death by a thousand paper cuts…... Read More »

525 Gough: No Sell Out

525 Gough: No Sell Out

Although showing a list date of 7/06/05, 525 Gough #405 has been on the market for at least four months (all the while at a list price of $1,025,000). This unit is quite possibly the only one not to be sold by the developer (out of 21). And as... Read More »
