New Trend: Paying More Than $1M Over Asking

34 Yerba Buena

A trend I’m seeing in the San Francisco luxury market is buyers paying more than $1M over the list price for single-family homes. This brings overbidding to new heights, as it has not been typical for overbids to reach such stratospheric levels.

Perhaps this Spring trend is due to the fear of interest rates rising and buyers’ desire to take advantage of what reasonably low rates. I think there are still a lot of folks reeling from Covid’s effects over the past two years who are sparing no expense to just get that single-family home in a good neighborhood, already.

Here’s what went down in March:

34 Yerba Buena | St. Francis Wood
3BR/4.5BA, 2791 sq ft
List Price: $2,795,000
Sale Price: $4,200,000
$1,405,000 over asking

The building was beautifully renovated and listed for $4,195,000. The seller reportedly received 13 offers (nine for cash and six for over $5M) and are in contract for $1,405,000 over list price.
