Hopefully NONE. The government has no place in real estate or mortgage markets except to regulate it fairly. Government over-involvement has been the cause of almost every real estate market bust over the past 60 years. It's better they just stay out. ... more

Cash flow opportunities exist everywhere when your expenses are low enough to produce a profit on market rate income. You'll find SF no different than every other high rent high cost area. ... more

You need to talk to lenders. The down payment you can make varies with the type of loan you get. I would talk to Ephraim Schwartz, partner at O'dette Mortgage Group, 415-297-8514 or Or go to my website and go to Resources and look under Mortgage Brokers for many other excellent contacts.

Good luck,

Hi Carl,

That's a good question! You should work directly with an agent who can help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

The cap rate will depend on many factors (property condition, tenant status, location, physical and rental restrictions, current rents compared to market rents, vacant units, etc.) so there is no dependable average figure. Generally speaking, if the property is in great condition with rents near market value or delivered vacant, the cap rate could be as low as 2-3%. If on the other hand the property has lots of issues, then the cap rate might be in the 6-8% range.

Lance King answered:
Buyers seem to be very focused on this number, but $ per sq ft is not the end all number as many things affect pricing property .

1. Within these districts there are properties that range from as much as 100+ years old to brand new.
2. Prices vary for top, middle, and bottom floors.
3. Views and light (or lack thereof) have huge impact on pricing.
4. Some have parking, some don't, another huge impact on pricing

These are just a few, but the most important in my view is that measuring square footage is a ridiculously inexact science. A perfect example: We had a listing on a property that had been measured 4 times over about 4 years due to purchase, condo conversion, and sale. The sizes range from 1258 sq ft to 1622 square feet. No, that is not a misprint. That means that one of the appraisers found (or lost) a VERY large room, and this kind of thing happens all the time. That is also why appraisals have very little to do with real world value.

This is why it is so important to have an agent/broker who is active in the business and has a lot of experience, because they can tell you from being in the trenches what that real world value can be.

Best Regards,

NACA by principle is a wonderful organization. There are some things about them that make listing agents weary. I have not dealt with them here in San Francisco. They are quite big in Sacramento. I have dealt with the branch manager in Oakland and she seemed to be on top of her files, though I must tell you that escrow has to go through a NACA approved escrow company and the closest one to us is in Fairfield... that being said it can be difficult when writing a NACA offer on a special circumstances property to get the seller to understand exactly how the program works and the minimal risk involved with working with a buyer financing through NACA. My best advice to you would be for you to take everything that you have and go into the NACA office in Oakland. I find that with organizations such as this that it works better to deal face-to-face... plus you feel vindicated in the fact that the "excuse" of not receiveing your documentation can't be used when you deliver the documents in person.

I know that the journey to homowership can be a tough one even when using programs designed to help put people into homes such as NACA.

If you need any help, please do ot hesitate to contact me and I will share some of my best practices with you... the biggest thing to remember once you do start writing on properties is that you need to have everything well documented to educate sellers and listing agents about what NACA is and how it works... people tend to have trepidation around things they are unfamiliar with so the more you can help them to be in the know the better chace you have of getting the property you have your heart set on.

Oggi Kashi answered:
What do you mean by "fair"? This is the price the seller wants. Are you saying it's too far way from the market value?

The ultimate market value is determined by how much a willing and able buyer agrees to pay for this house under normal market conditions. Are you looking for an evaluation? What's your agent's professional opinion of value?

Tim Moore answered:
You will not have an easy time finding sold properties online easily if at all. You could go to your county courthouse and search records for days and days, but a better approach would be to seek the help of a local Realtor that has access to the sold comps in the MLS system. What you would be asking their help for will require some time and work and they will not be getting a chance to list or sell a house, which is how we make our living, so offer them some money to help you save a lot of time searching yourself. ... more

Nafiseh Lindberg answered:
The answer to that question will have to vary from person to person. It depends on your financial means and goals. it is a great time to buy in San Francisco. Prices are lower than they were a few years ago and the interest rates are great! Wheather the prices will go lower is any body's guess, but in this city things seem to be pretty stable. The rental market on the other hand is very hot and the prices seem to be on the rise. The City is one of the high rent areas. So if you have the money and the aspirations then by all means buy. But if you have any uncertainties about your own financial situation or anything else, then perhaps you should rent for a while. ... more
