A below market rate (BMR) unit in Pacific Heights recently hit the market with an asking price of $264,238. It's a junior one bedroom apartment with one bathroom. To qualify, you must be a first-time homebuyer and income eligible. What's income eligible? Well, if it's just you buying the place, you can't make more than $69,600. If there's two of you, then it's a maximum combined income of $79,5000. Now that we got the necessary but not exciting stuff out of the way: how about that silk striped sofa, eh? We'd love to meet the current owner, because we're going to present him (or her) with the Curbed SF Award of Excellence for eloquently squeezing a grand piano into a studio apartment. Although we're totally digging the mood of this bachelor pad, we'd suggest using a lighter color palette if it has a problem selling. The dark hues are great for some people, but daunting to others who seek a more beige-filled life. Monthly HOA dues are $544.74 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.
