What You Can Buy for $800,000

The last time we checked out what you could buy at the $800,000 price point, the selections were condos. This time around, we look at single-family homes. Here’s our latest trio:

1520 Diamond, Noe Valley

New to the market is 1520 Diamond, a 2BR/1BA home that’s all of 1050 square feet. The seller has owned the property for the past 65 years, which means one thing: Needs work. This one could use new flooring, an updated kitchen/bath and a basic sprucing up. But it may not be a bad deal for Noe Valley. The 1946-built home isn’t big on charm, but the space is very functional and there’s two-car parking.

16 Bronte, Bernal Heights

I toured 16 Bronte a couple weeks ago when it was new to the market–at a list price of $829,000. The price for this 4BR/2BA home has since dropped to $799,000.  It’s located on the south side of Cortland, and features an updated kitchen and two remodeled bathrooms. There’s a large living room with a formal dining room that has a gas-burning fireplace. There’s also a cute yard with a cottage that could be used as a studio or office.

69 Springfield Drive, Lake Shore

On the opposite end of town is 69 Springfield, a 2BR/1BA home in the manicured Lake Shore district. The house is clean but could use updating; however, the location is great if you appreciate quick access to the beach, Stonestown, West Portal and Ocean Avenue. The property has been on and off the market for the past couple years, so maybe now is the time to swoop in and get yourself a deal.
