Since this property is not listed on the MLS, the best I can do is suggest you email Leonard James and find out if it is in fact active.
All the Best!

This is a question that can only be answered - It Depends.
Normal money channels like hard working, tax paying individuals with good old social security numbers as borrowers.
For larger purchases other tax structures might be more efficient. Also understand that once the property has your name on the title you can do many things with it, like put it in a trust but to refinance you have to take it out of the trust because most lenders don't lend to trusts.
Investment property buying and selling are very different discussions.... more

Personally, I would recommend not walking around holding your phone/texting as I have heard several reports of theft/assult over iPhones.

I lived in an apartment on California and Pierce and another apartment on California and Baker.
In the first apartment, there really wasn't a gym nearby. A few studios, but no gym. Also, the closest grocery store was Mollie Stone ($$$). The California 1x or 1bx runs often and are very fast.
I felt safe around Fillmore, but it gets a bit shadier going towards Geary. The demographic is affluent professionals, mostly mid-20's to 40's.
In my second apartment, I had a hard time catching cabs. I would go to the Jewish Community Center to gym and Trader Joes to grocery shop. I still felt safe, but would be cautious.
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any additional questions!

That gritty Divisadero/Western Addition edge also means panhandlers and out-of-neighborhood elements. Also, Divisadero is a busy street - traffic can be difficult. The bar nearby can be loud into the early morning.... more
Divisadero & Bush Street has many classic apartments, often roomy, with nice detailing inside. It is cheaper than Pacific Heights proper, which is beginning to gentrify this corner. Divisadero/Bush offers much of the suburban, family, middle-class qualities of Pac Heights, though maintains the gritty Divisadero/Western Addition edge. There are lots of businesses, shops, and restaurants in the area, including a popular bar and a couple of yoga centers.... more

Vicky, if you're a homeowner, you should definitely carry homeowners insurance. With homeowners insurance, there is usually a 'content' rider that covers your belonging (except for the deductible), and depending on where you live, you might also consider wind, hurricane, water, and tornado insurance riders, all of which are attachments to your policy. Your HOA is not an insurance per se. It is more of a maitenance agreement that also includes (in most parts of the country) a liability insurance in case you get hurt on the property. You may, as an option, also get a Home Warranty for the approx. cost of $450 per year that provides funds in the event your appliances, electric furnace, water couplings, fridge, washer, and other selected items (you can select the coverate) are damaged. This is separate policy. Hope this helps..... more
