I question a corellation between the America's Cup and rising home values, but even without the help of a mega-million dollar yacht race prices on Nob Hill are going up both in terms of rent and selling prices. I had a little condo at The Galleria on the market two years ago that couldn't sell so my client rented it out. Recently we decided to quietly market it with the tenant in place (at her last listing price) and received an offer within two weeks.
