Is the reason for your request that you are an all-cash buyer and searching for great deals?

Garage space is a premium in San Francisco in general and more so in your area. I cannot tell you the rental benefit but should you sell this bldg the value would be $100,000 per space.

Mary Macpherson answered:
Yes - good catch! The local broker tour is on Tuesday, and for agents to submit listings to be included in the tour, they have to input their new listings by noon on Friday. Many agents prefer to keep their listings as 'fresh' as possible (low days on market), so they wait until the end of the week to post them.

Check the MLS tomorrow at noon, and you'll see a fairly dramatic increase in the number of listings posted.

William -There is absolutely, positively no way to get around hiring an attorney to assist in these matters. The repercussions from an incorrect action by a property owner / landlord can be absolutely devastating. Please contact me or another agent in San Francisco to get a list of attorneys who specialize in tenant law in San Francisco. You need an attorney who handles tenant situations on a daily basis as the laws are so complex and subject to constant change. They also strongly favor the tenant. When you have protected tenants, you've entered into a new realm of complexity.

To answer your second question, yes the value would be affected significantly in most cases. I'd be happy to provide you a complimentary market analysis taking each scenario into account for your property specifically. Thanks and hope to hear from you-

Christine McDaniel answered:
Depends on the price of the home. In my area it seems like homes priced $100,000 or less will ask $500-$1,000 for earnest money. Most homes above that ask for $1,000 in earnest money. The homes over $300,000 will be asking more. Earnest money is negotiable.

Good Luck,
Christine

Oggi Kashi answered:
It all depends on what parts of the Bay Area your agent is referring to. Yes, we have seen a jump up in prices as early as the 1st quarter of 2011 in SF but not in all neighborhoods. However, a 5% increase in 3 months seems a bit high in my opinion. Here is a link to the latest home values in different neighborhoods:

Oggi Kashi answered:
3 years is a long time. Where do you feel price might be in 3 years? How about interest rates? Consider 3 years of mortgage tax deductions and possible future equity gain upon selling. By all indications, we are at a low point in the market so if you purchase property now, you could be sitting pretty in 2-3 years.

Hi there,

If you don't like fog and cold summers, stay away from Daly City, Pacifica, parts of San Bruno. Burlingame, Millbare, San Mateo are good with Caltrain going to downtown SF (4th Street). ... more

Those are 2 tough commutes! You can be closer to Cal Train living in SOMA or Mission Bay. Have you considered Lake or Central/inner Richmond? They will be more central to both your commutes and are great neighborhoods.

Lake / Richmond:

Jan Maddock answered:
San Francisco is an area of diverse micro climates. They generally divide by North Bay, East Bay, South Bay and Peninsula. The Peninsula is what most people think of when mentioned San Francisco. It is Foggy in the summer and warm in the spring with very little rain in the winter temperatures generally range from 50's to 70's. The other parts of the San Francisco Bay area have less fog, more heat and more rain depending on how far away from the water you are.

Hope this helps. Why do you ask??

Lance King answered:
San Francisco has one of the most pro-tenant environments of any city I've ever seen, and most likely you will have to pay. Some of the rules vary depending upon when the property was built, what type of property and past eviction history, but I have been through this with clients and on my own purchases - if you want some inside info call me or drop me and email me - but you need to consult with an attorney. I can give you a great referral for one as well.

Gabriel Rojas answered:
Great question Christina and one that a lot of people wish they had the answer to.

I, for one, believe in the incredible growth of areas South of Market. With all of the development in the area including new homes, park lands and recreational spaces, new companies, and potentially a new school, SOMA and all its neighborhoods are sure to increase in value. When you add in how convenient transportation is in this area too, this seems like a sure bet when it comes to a new home or an investment property.

Other places to look into may be the Tenderloin which is a historical area and will only get nicer with time (think Harlem in NYC). It may not look perfect in the next 5 years but you can bet that being that close to downtown and Union Square is going to help in property value in that time frame.

I hope this is helpful and feel free to contact me anytime if you want to get into more specifics.

Best,

Gabriel

J Mario Preza answered:
My office and our team is scouring the "Inner Mission" area of San Francisco for houses, and while we come across some "exceptional" deals, they have been tempered by the pent up demand of the folks who work in some of the tech companies in the surrounding areas. This has also affected the rents, which are now so high that people are opting to move elsewhere, or get "roommates" to help defray the costs. Yes, this influx has affected the market overall. ... more
