UpNest answered:
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

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.

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.

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:

As the #1 Broker in South Beach per MLS 2011 and 2012, I can confidently tell you; "It depends."

A lot of my clients like the Infinity. I think Metropolitan is undervalued.

Rich Bennett answered:
Hi Ee-

I realize this is an older post but as an fyi, sales prices are recorded and are public record. Any realtor can help you determine what a particular unit has sold for. If you're thinking of buying a unit in a particular building, it's most likely better for you to be represented by an agent not affiliated with the developer/building. This way, you can truly negotiate and get the best deal possible.

Thanks-

great question maria. i think the best building in the south beach mission bay neighborhood is 88 king street, by far! it has the only usable pool (6 stories of towers block the wind from the west) it has the only easily justifiable hoa fees for the money. 100 meg internet, hot water, parking, 24 hour front desk, gym, spa, office, conference room, party room with kitchen, bbq, hot tub, pool, garden deck, security. all for an average of 700/mo. ... more
