Remember the Crapsman Cottage where a previous owner was shocked that someone would obliterate her elegant interior color scheme with... white? Now in escrow at the asking price of $925K after 17 days on the market. Thus proving the paint job worked for at least two people on the planet.
Factoids from the occasionally interesting Neighborhood Homes Sold at SFGate: The grand 115 Cherry Street sold for $350K over the asking price of $4,000,000. And we also note that unit 12G in 501 Beale Street, The Watermark, had closed escrow. At the rate of one closing a week, the building should be fully sold in two years.
