West Portal fixer on Ulloa closes

Vintage detail in the living room of 611 Ulloa

Someone got a good deal on 611 Ulloa.  Starting out at $769,000, the home was on the market for 30 days before reducing it to $699,000.  This is a great price to get into West Portal-even for a home needing work.

The lucky buyer got this great entry level opportunity for $650,000, closing at the end of April.  A lot of work, BUT a lot of reward!

A home sale to watch in the Inner Sunset

1522 9th Ave. is a wonderful original home in the Inner Sunset.  Offers are due 1/13/11, so it’s a little late to get in the game, but it sure will be interesting to see what happens.  Listed at $799,000, I expect this home to sell with multiple offers over asking.

1522 9th Ave. exterior

A two story, substantial home, built in 1909.  Four bedrooms-all on one level, one bath, a fireplace and box beamed ceilings in the dining room, two car garage parking.  And of course, a fabulous location in the Inner Sunset, convenient to public transit and all the great shops the area has to offer.

1522 9th Ave. entry

Here’s a quirky little thing about it.  A clinker brick fireplace in the garage!  How’d that get there?!
