Greetings and welcome to another edition of Tuesday Tour Show-stoppers. We saw 34 properties on tour yesterday and have to say there are a lot of overpriced dogs out there! We were perhaps a little more lenient this week about who made our list because the batch of properties we saw was nothing special. Well, except for the Mayor’s penthouse at 1101 Green. This property has some of the most amazing views we’ve ever seen. And despite the commentary on other blogs all week, it was definitely a tastefully decorated bachelor pad. Maybe you just have to see it in person… the photos don’t do it justice.
We’ve grouped our Show-stoppers into two categories (which we’ll likely do from now on). We’ve separated 5-star homes and 4-star homes. And what about the 3′s, 2′s, 1′s, and zeros? Well, being that we work in the business we don’t want to bash anyone’s listings publicly. But we will point out ones we especially enjoyed visiting, ie: the 4′s and 5′s.
Our favorite listing this week was 1101 Green #2001, which is indeed Gavin’s pad. And we’re not picking it because of the prestige factor. We actually really enjoyed this home, the layout, and we’re suckers for amazing views. The top-of-Russian-Hill location is of course primo, and that’s why it’s our fave of the week. If you follow our pocket listings posts you would’ve known it was going to hit the market way back on 3/11/09. Here are our picks of the week:
*Keep in mind we are not judging prices. We are judging what we believe to be nice homes in good locations. We are also not judging potential. We see run down homes all the time that could be a good equity-building opportunity for someone, but unfortunately, these types of homes won’t make our Show-stoppers lists.
