The best way to find out about pocket listings is through a realtor who knows the insider secrets of the local area. An agent with the right connections will unveil several listings before they are marketed to the public. UpNest.com can help you narrow down your search and find the right realtor with the best connections. ... more

There is a whole lot of new construction going on in SF these days - some are high rises and some smaller buildings, but there's definitely a lot being built and more on the way!

Ryan Rudnick answered:
There are many homes in SF that were built in the early 1900s, but many of the homes from that era were destoryed in the fire/earthquake in 1906, so there are few buildings standing today from before then. It's also worth noting that records were destroyed in the fire, so some buildings with tax records showing build date before 1906 may actually be much older than stated, since they had to guess at some buildings records. I'm actually just about to list homes in 2 pre-earthquake buildings for sale (a 3 unit building, and a condo)! ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

For some reason this popped up as a new question on the Q&A section, so sorry to bring back an old post. Just thought it was interesting to see what people were suggesting in 2007, just a year before the market crashed. ... more

Ryan Rudnick answered:
Looks like the other answerers have it down - unusually low prices are likely either scams, below market rate units, or very motivated owners who need to get some cash flow from their apartment quickly.

If you're looking to rent in a newer building, I'd be happy to help!

Hi Liu!

USF is a great school. I went there for my BA in Psychology and loved it. I lived on campus for a year and stayed in the neighbhood for quite a while.

I'd be happy to help you look for a property in the area, or answer any questions you have about the school itself!

Good luck!

The best I can tell this home is not for sale. Trulia has a strange way of listing foreclosures that is somewhat confusing. I recently wrote a blog about finding foreclosures on Trulia. I'll put a link to it in the web reference below. That should answer all of your questions.

Adam, does the broker have an e-mail from Excite.com by any chance?

It's the second time I find a "absolutely good deal" from guys with different names, but with standardized e-mail messages and thy both have e-mails @excite.com

I'm facing the same problem as you.

Theresa Sabella answered:
Dogpatch is the fastest growing neighborhood in SF. It has changed in the past 5 years and will change even more in the next 5-15 years. UCSF is there, maybe Kaiser soon. The Port of SF is building new retail, parks and residential. Schools will follow. I have told every client I can for the past 10 years to invest in Dogpatch. Finding anything for 600K will be the challenge.

Regards,
Theresa

South Park is in the neighborhood and is a great park for dogs (and people) to run around at.
There are also a few dog grooming places in Soma - Here's a few that are nearby in the neighborhood:

Ultimately? Buyers drive the market....along with new construction prices. The fact that we have see multiple price increases by individual national builders since last summer is a very positive indication. They can raise their prices but they still must appraise for the contract prices. ... more
