Can someone please give me a fair asking price for a 1,200 SQ Ft, 1 bedroom with top notch finishings in the Mission District of San Francisco?

Good luck and may God bless

We just put in an offer on a traditional sale. The listing agent responded that we were one of two offers on the table.
Go with your gut. If you will be disappointed that you lost the house for $5-10k, make the higher offer. If your first offer is the most you want to pay, let it go. Unless the house is ... more
