Why Cow Hollow?

Posted On September 15th, 2014 by Cynthia Cummins | No Comments

Cow Hollow when there were actual cows in the hollow. Here’s another entry in my series of installments at RealEstateTherapy.org called “Realtor’s Dozen,” in which I extol 13 virtues of a neighborhood in San Francisco. You can’t help but love an urban neighborhood with a name like Cow Hollow. Especially given the discrepancy between its cow-filled past and its multi-million-dollar-home-filled present. Walk westward and you’re in The Presidio — full of Eucalyptus trees, historic buildings, hikes, museums and a cemetery…

I heard it again the other day: An uninformed SF newbie designating huge swatches of the city as uninhabitable. As in, “I could never live there. I might as well just move to Marin. Or Hayward. Or Mountain View. It’s true I err on the side of “I never met a San Francisco neighborhood I didn’t like,” but – honestly! – every part of town has its merits. My focus today? The breathtakingly delightful Richmond district. Why? “Outside Lands” real…

Posted On September 10th, 2014 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

When San Franciscans head to the ballot box on November 4th, one of the most divisive hot-button issues they’ll face will undoubtedly be Proposition G. The proposed measure would tax any seller of a multi-unit residence who has owned the property for less than six years, with the levy weighing in at a massive 14 to 24 percent of total sale price, depending on duration of ownership. At face value, the measure—first proposed by a coalition representing concerned city tenants—seems…
