The Under 500 Club is Curbed SF's exclusive members-only support group for those homes on the market for less than $500,000. Things are looking up: Once the domain of poorly (if at all) staged homes, the Club's membership has grown to include both shitboxes and hidden gems. All listings of note should be sent to the Curbed SF Inbox.
