Curb appeal.
Rents are high, but not high enough to draw in the truly affluent, or at least people who can discern the difference between quality vs: declasse. I try to pick up garbage off the street, but with absolutely no cooperation from THE REST OF YOU, that's just the little taste of the Tenderloin that makes the most difference. Trashy landscaping prevails and nobody seems to realize that Hedera is a noxious and ugly weed.
Also, the trashy little notices that Priscilla Aguilar compulsively puts on all our walls and hallways is another detraction, insofar as Diamond Heights Village itself is concerned.

Call Ken @ 7x7. He isn't bank broker, and he checks with all the best lenders to get you the best rate possible. He doesn't work banker hours either. He will guide and explain the whole process.

step 1: Get Qualified
step 2: Lock in your rate (if possible)
step 3: get a pre-approval letter
step 4: communicate the property and plan to lender
step 5: make an offer based on the lender's timeframe (closing date and contingencies)

Hi Lmno,

There always is a chance, it will depend on the exact location and condition of the property. As for the sellers, the market is pretty strong for the sellers right now, not everyone wants to sell as the market has been moving upwards this year - nobody is giving anything away in this town, not even the REO (bank owned property) or short sales, the demand is just too strong right now.

Good luck

Hey Sid,

What part of NY did you live in? I lived there about 4 years ago and can draw a pretty good comparison between neighborhoods. I'd say that what makes Diamond Heights materially cheaper is the fact that a lot of the townhouses look the same. It doesn't quite have the character that most San Francisco neighborhoods have. Don't get me wrong, it has good value for the convenience and proximity to downtown, but I'd say that most San Francisco home shoppers look for a little different criteria. ... more
