The Under 500 Club is Curbed SF's exclusive members-only support group for those shoddy, poorly-staged homes (if at all!) languishing on the market for under $500,000. It's a sad state of affairs out there, San Francisco. All sad sacks and shitboxes should appeal to the Curbed SF inbox.
What: 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, single-family home
Where: 38 Waterville Street, Silver Terrace
How Much: $374,900
Note: "Why rent?" asks the listing for 38 Waterville. And indeed, this quirky SFH is priced to sell. Although it could definitely use a little TLC— and by TLC we mean a major updating— it's nowhere near as dire as some of the homes we've seen at a similar price-point. Even better? That low low price includes "several bonus rooms."
What: 1 bedroom, 1 bath, Tenancy In Common
Where: 1244 Pierce St, Western Addition
How Much: $415,000
Note: This full-floor TIC in a 2 unit building looks like its seen a recent renovation and is "Offered as %TIC's or entire building!" And hey, for under $500K, Western Addition's not a bad place to live.
What: 2 bedroom, 1 bath, 644 sq ft semi-attached single-family home
Where: 39 Edgar Place, Ingleside
How Much: $449,000
Note: 39 Edgar Place is listed as a 2 bedroom, but we also see 2 kitchens, making us think part of this building could be or rented out or a renovation could really open the place up. Warning to all lurkers: "This property is bank owned, and occupied. DO NOT DISTURB OCCUPANT."
