Let's not get it twisted... Have you all got amnesia? One block to the right of the Safeway Shopping Center as you are coming out of the store,, on the other side of Diamond Heights Blvd is a square city block of housing projects. Yes, the brown apartments across the street from the lovely condos. The views are spectacular, & the rent (when I lived there with roommates) was dirt cheap. However, back in the 1980's and 90's these projects were filled with drug dealers and riddled with various crimes ranging from homicide, rape, armed robbery, you name it. It was just as dangerous to visit the neighborhood as it was going to Hunter's Point, McAllister & Fillmore, Lakeview, Sunnydale, Double Rock, South Van Ness just to name several more..
I don't know what it is like today but I don't think the project there have been demolished like other places.

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
