Money Monday: Missed Housing Opportunity

I have a set of housing criteria which filter out some real housing gems. One of these criteria is a parking spot which this condo in the Inner Richmond does not have. It’s already in contract and I swear if I had known about it, I would have pounced on it. It’s located just past Laurel Heights (one of my former beloved ‘hoods) near Arguello and Geary in San Francisco. It’s centrally located with a multitude of bus lines that will take you wherever you need to go in the city. And at discounted prices because it’s not in the hotbed of the Mission or SOMA or Potrero Hill. What a steal, especially since people are paying upwards of $700,000 for dorm-room lofts in those areas. Advice: broaden your range and criteria. There are deals to be had out there!

262 3rd Avenue – $429,000 – 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, 0 parking condominium

      Janine, you are right. I should ask if there’s any way I can get in on it even though it’s in contract. You never know!

    You and your blog ALWAYS make me nostalgic. 3rd street is my home as I grew up on Gilman (same block as Candlestick). Love this house. There’s an airiness to it…and the floors – YES!

    Maybe something will fall through! You are so good about scouting these things out — can you help me out when I am ready to downsize?! :)
