What You Can Buy for $650,000

The $650,000 price range is a pretty popular one. And this being San Francisco, there’s a variety of options. We’ll take a look at three properties in different neighborhoods to give you a sense for what type of purchase is possible.

First up is 1880 Vallejo #1 in Pacific Heights:

1880 Vallejo is a 1BR/1.5BA condo in a four-unit building. There’s a formal dining room, fireplace, granite counters in the kitchen, high ceilings and hardwood floors. HOA dues are a low $295/mo. One-car parking is also included. Locationwise, you’re two blocks from Union Street.

We next head west to 2720 Ulloa in the Parkside:

2720 Ulloa has the classic 2BR plus sunroom floor plan. This one’s been in the same family for a long time, and the home is now being sold in a trust sale (with no court confirmation). And for those of you who care about such details, someone did pass away on the property about a year ago. Kitchen and bath are original, and there are recently refinished floors in which you can now see your reflection. The house has lovely 1920s details still intact, such as built-ins and picture rails. They already have an offer in hand, but it’s apparently going to be sealed until November 15th. So get over to Ulloa soon if you want to be in the running. The average 2BR house in the Parkside over the past year has been approximately $675,000.

Finally, there’s 45 Landers, in the decidedly more hip Mission Dolores area:

45 Landers is a 2BR/1BA tenancy-in-common (TIC) in a newly formed,  four-unit building. As such, there will be fractional financing in place so no group loan will be necessary. This particular unit features five rooms and is spacious in comparison to condos at this price in the neighborhood. The seller has made seismic upgrades recently, which should count for something in San Francisco. One-car parking comes with this unit.
