Continued: South Beach Condos in the TTC Development Spotlight

Posted On August 26th, 2014 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

Aside from being hot, the condominium market also showed some health in Q2. This quarter saw 717 condominium sales in the city—the second-highest total in the last six years. This silver lining for potential buyers is bolstered by the fact that several construction projects for luxury condominiums and lofts have already started to break ground, and more are in the pipeline awaiting either a permit or approval. The Yerba Buena and South Beach areas have a massive economic and condominium…

10 Things Smart Buyers Look for in a Home

Posted On August 24th, 2014 by Cynthia Cummins | No Comments

If you’re listing your home for sale, keep this list in mind. When I’m representing buyers, I’m always on the lookout for a “run-don’t-walk” property which… Is vacant and unstaged. Does not have a dedicated website. Is listed by an out-of-town broker. Has one grainy photo on MLS (or no photo). Doesn’t appear on MLS at all. Is shown on lockbox. Is asking $50,000 more than the most recent comparable. Isn’t listed on broker’s tour. Advertises “offers as they come.” Smells like a…

Spoiler Alert: Don’t Read This if You’re New to San Francisco!

Posted On August 22nd, 2014 by Cynthia Cummins | No Comments

Not for sale: Mark Twain’s “Stormfield” Turns out Mark Twain never actually said that cool thing about summer in San Francisco being the coldest winter ever. I was going to use the quote on my blog today but when I checked its accuracy, up popped a Snopes link to quash my clever intro.

Posted On August 1st, 2014 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

Alameda home sales flourished this quarter as would-be San Francisco buyers expanded their search. The county’s $787,006 average sales price was up 17 percent over its previous record set in Q2 2013.
