Less “Uber Cool” Cash For An “Uber Cool” House (745 Detroit)

Our original mention generated a bit more debate and controversy than we expected, and we’re really not trying to stir the pot, but we do have to note that the asking price on 745 Detroit was just dropped another $100,000 (now listed $205,000 or 12.1% below original asking). And... Read More »

A Modern Worldly Renovation In Bernal Heights (442 Anderson)

A Relatively Nondescript Building (And A Unit That’s Anything But)

We liked it when it first hit the market three weeks ago, but within days it was listed as “in contract” (and so we chose not to point it out). But for one reason or another, 1080 Chestnut #11D is once again active and worth a peek. And yes,... Read More »
