We looked at a whopping 7 properties yesterday: 3 in San Francisco and 4 in the East Bay (Rockridge, Berkeley).
We saw some really nice gems. After rank-ordering, we determined that the ones in the East Bay just fell flat for one reason or another (small, awkward layout, sketchy neighborhood). So we’re eyeing 2 of the 3 properties we saw in SF.
I tweeted about this last night, but wanted to post this as a call-out to my blog network. We are looking for a partner to purchase a $1.4 million duplex in Bernal Heights (split $700k for each unit). This property is a stunning, move-in-ready, remodeled Victorian. Pictures below.
We’re also considering an offer on a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo in Potrero Hill. The drawback? Right across the street (i.e., the view from your front window) is the 101 freeway. Surprisingly, there’s no freeway noise in the house. But would you live across the street from a major freeway?
