Any agent that responds to you should be sure to first find ouot if you are represnted by an agent. We can't interfere with someone working with an agent.
That said I assume that you have looked at the recent sales data, that you've been looking at other properties and feel comfortable enough to compare this with what you've seen and what the other properties have sold for.
With your agent look at the sales history and ask your self the question you're asking us. You the ready and willing buyer sets the value of the property. (one note that is not the inner sunset it is central sunset)
I have know idea what data Zahod is applying. Nothing in the city is losing value by 2.1% per month or 24% per year. He's might be using Case Schiller but not understanding the data or the market.
He is correct in that if you like the property and are goiung to live there buy it.
I lived at the Bay Area at one time years ago, and our home had fantastic view of the Golden Gate. It was indeed beautiful.
Best wishes to you and your family.

There are a host of other variables besides looking at comps which are a guideline for pricing/value.
Crafting a strong offer is another important detail and is a combination of price and terms. The highest offer isn't necessarily the strongest/best offer. Buyers do ultimately set the market value of a property.
Good Luck! Looks like a great place.
If you love it you buy it at the price you feel comfortable with......but I think you should offer closer to $900k than $1m..try $935k....you never know..
