In San Francisco, the walk score is an essential part to a homes value. So many people want the convenience of restaurants, transportation, shopping and in your case grocery stores. The addition of Whole Foods, a major successful market in that area on Ocean Blvd. will most likely bring in more people who would otherwise look in somewhere else. The addition will act as an anchor for the community to gather, a place to get GREAT food and support strong commerce. Let me know if I can give you a home evaluation or find some comps in the area. ... more

Depending on your proximity to City College, the biggest draw back is parking. College kids use the neighborhood as their parking lot which is horrible during the day, and in the early evening. ... more

Sunnyside is a great neighborhood with stand-alone single family homes, big (relative to SF homes) backyards, right off the 280/Glen Park bart and despite few people knowing about it, a central SF location. It's just as easy to drive up 19th Ave to Golden Gate Park as it is to get to the Embarcadero. Because of it's relative obscurity value for your dollar is great. We moved into the neighborhood in 2010, and it's a mix of new/young families and some families that have been here for a few generations. ... more

A lot of good opinions in here.

One other consideration:
My experience has been that north of Monterey Blvd. tends to be more desirable from a buyer's perspective, so that would make it better from a seller's perspective also. Sunnyside is very block to block in terms of desirability, so cruising around to see how they compare is the best advise. Generally, the closer you get to Glen Park, the better and if you can find a home that has something to it, such as a view, garden, or architectural style is what will set you apart from other listings.

If you are looking in Bernal too, the same issues apply in terms of desirability: i.e. North of Cortland is generally better than South of Cortland. So, if your budget dictates South of Cortland, the same issues apply in terms of view, garden, architectural style, etc... to set you apart from other listings.

Best of luck.

Hi Dede--You can file an informal or formal appeal. Any filings between July 2-Sept 15th are intended to be formally appealed before the Assessment Appeals Board.

Here is the link that explains the process:
http://www.sfbos.org/index.aspx?page=3699

In either event, the best way to approach an appeal is to ask a Realtor to assist you with selecting the most accurate comps and then include that info in your appeal. I've assisted a number of people with this, so feel free to email me at ebermingham@pacunion.com and I can get to work.

Cheers,
Eileen
