as liz said...tiburon/belvedere is a unique community desired by many young families not only for its natural beauty and proximity to SF but more importantly because of our remarkable school system.
the $900,000-1.350,00 tiburon/belvedere home, would be considered a starter home...hence, the velocity of activity around such moderately priced homes is significant...not inflated...a simple text book case of supply and demand.

The costs associated with selling a home vary by several factors, mostly the sales price itself. There is a county transfer tax of $1 per $1000 of selling price. Commission varies but is usually 5% total (split between the listing broker and the selling broker) but some agents ask for 6%. Escrow charges for a seller are usually nominal (doc prep fee, notary fee) as buyers pay for most of the closing costs. Sellers might pay for a home warranty, usually pay for city inspection, and any other costs that might be involved in preparing a home for the market. I have a program where I can calculate the typical costs for you depending upon selling price, closing date, mortgage rate (if any) and balance of the loan. Let me know if you would like me to work up a seller net sheet for you. Bev Shwert, Alain Pinel Realtors, 415-297-7811. ... more

If you are familiar with this property I can see why you would be curious about the price. This home sold in 2012 for 1.75 million back in July! It had been for well over a year. I have not seen the home since it was put back on for $3.4 but I can tell from the pictures and notes that it has been extensively remodeled.
As far as $1300 per sq ft, it is not unusual for a home in Belvedere to get this kind of price. There could have been several reasons why it sold at the $1.75 in 2012 It could have needed major foundation work, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of wood rot who knows. The $1.75 seems exceedly low of a price for a historical home in such a prime location. More than likely there was was a good reason for it. The home is a beautiful home with a lot of detailing that is typical of that era. It was built in 1865 and has beveled glass windows throughout, brass doorknobs,.gardens, patios and amazing views. Not to mention it is right on the water.
When looking at the comparables, current homes on the market, and solds, the price does seem to be at a current value. The listing agents as well are excellent agents who focus in on high end properties and it is doubtful they would take on an overpriced listing.
