What You Can Buy for the Holidays


There are a few intrepid sellers who have just listed their homes and would undoubtedly love to be in contract before Christmas. Here are four new listings that I think will definitely achieve that goal, if not be actually sold and closed by December 25th. If you’re a buyer, it’s time to move quickly! Be decisive, and choose your calendar timeframes strategically because banks and title companies close early on Christmas Eve/New Year’s Eve, and are closed completely on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Here’s a look at what’s out there.

1925 Pacific #6
Pacific Heights Condo
3BR/2BA, $1,675,000
The Deets: 1925 Pacific #6 is the one you’re looking for if you want a top-floor condo with a Bay view in a handsome Edwardian building.
Perks: Master bedroom has a view of Alcatraz, eat-in kitchen, one-car parking.
Location: Four blocks to Union Street and about nine blocks to Fillmore Street’s cafes and restaurants. Two blocks north of Lafayette Park. Excellent for commuters who want to jump on Van Ness/101 or grab a bus downtown.

1040 Masonic #2
Haight Condo
2BR/1BA, $799,000
The Deets: Excellent fit for buyers seeking a centrally located in the Haight/NoPa neighborhoods, (and a highly recommended option for the other 29 buyers who recently lost out on nearby 135 Parnassus, which received 30 offers). 1040 Masonic has an open floor plan with updated kitchen and space for a master bedroom and office/den.
Perks: Overlooks a Zen-style garden, and comes with a deeded unwarranted room.
Location: Half a block from the Panhandle, and you can jump on Fell to go downtown/to 101. Less than two blocks to the heart of Haight Street (and Ben & Jerry’s).

964 Clayton
Buena Vista/Ashbury Heights House
3BR/2.25BA, $1,950,000
The Deets: Remodeled Edwardian with remodeled kitchen that includes white Calcutta marble counters. 964 Clayton also has a large, functional yard.
Perks: Three large bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the top floor.
Location: Only a couple blocks to Cole Valley’s retail area, and just up the hill from Haight Street.

3080 24th Avenue
Merced Manor
3BR/2.5BA, $1,350,000
The Deets: Totally move-in condition single-family home that could use some updating down the line.
Perks: Living room has soaring ceilings and fireplace.
Location: 3080 24th Avenue is situated in one of my favorite neighborhoods. The house is a stone’s throw from Stern Grove, as well as Stonestown Galleria and West Portal. 19th Avenue takes you right to the Golden Gate Bridge, so the neighborhood is popular with North Bay commuters.
