What You Can Buy in August: 21 Days & Counting

New listings got you down? Well, I found two condos and one single-family home that have been sitting on the market for more than 21 days. And that means potentially writing an offer without having to compete with other buyers and pay way over the list price. Here’s what I have to show you this time around:

251 Upland
Mt Davidson Manor

Days on market (DOM): 33
3BR/2BA, 2134 sq ft
2 pkg
List Price: $995,000

Where can you find a 2,000+ square foot house with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and parking in a nice neighborhood for under $1M? 251 Upland fits the bill. Though it doesn’t have much outdoor space, the home occupies a corner lot and has lovely 1930s period detail. The kitchen is spacious and has a breakfast nook, and the lower level includes a bedroom, den/media room, laundry area and storage. 251 Aptos is right near Ocean Avenue, Lakeside Village, Whole Foods and Stonestown Galleria.

226 Ashbury

Days on market (DOM): 24
2BR/2BA, 1300 sq ft
1 pkg
List Price: $899,000

226 Ashbury is a condo that had a brief foray into contract before coming back on the market earlier this month. It’s obviously gotten lost in the newer inventory shuffle. Situated only half a block from Golden Gate Park, this Victorian condo features a large master suite that can also accommodate a sitting area or office, remodeled kitchen, exclusive-use deck and direct access to the common paved yard. You’re on the first floor of a three-unit building, but for the location and overall unit scale, the list price seems like a deal to me.

1244 Jackson
Nob Hill

Days on market (DOM): 25
3BR/1BA, 1,332 sq ft
1 pkg
List Price: $1,299,500

1244 Jackson is located right on the cable car line, which is charming (but could also be noisy). The building was constructed in 1910 and has all the gracious interior details to show for it. Yes, you only have one bathroom, but if you can get past that, you’ll enjoy an eat-in kitchen with Golden Gate Bridge views, and parking.
