It's been about ten months since we checked out the cheapest real estate in Lower Pacific Heights. Last time the most expensive on the list was a 4-bed, 2-bath condo asking $1,199,000 and the cheapest in all of the neighborhood was a TIC studio asking $239,000. This time around everything's more expensive, and only one listing made it into our prestigious Under 500K Club. It's a studio. As always, all homes listed are up for grabs, meaning we didn't include any listing that has a sale that's currently pending. Boundaries are above and are set by the realtors. WIthout further ado, the ten least expensive properties for sale in Lower Pac Heights.

Size: 4-bed, 3.75-bath, 3,796 sq. ft. condo

Asking price: $1,299,000
Size: 4-bed, 2.5-bath, 2,668 sq. ft. single-family home
Price per square foot: $487
The skinny: Broker babble tells us that "this grand old house is just waiting to be reborn!" What that means is that it likely needs to be restored or renovated. We can't tell much from the blurry and dark interior photos, but it seems to have held on to some of its architectural charm from the early 1900s. This home's been on the market 3 days.
8) 3 Cottage Row

Size: 2-bed, 2-bath, 1,410 sq. ft. single-family home

7) 1901 California Street, #10
Asking price: $1,285,000
Size: 3-bed, 2-bath, 2,300 sq. ft. co-op
Price per square foot: $559
The skinny: Bright and airy, this top floor flat is. Circa 1919, this is an elegant co-op apartment from a "by-gone era." It has city views looking south. We'd be lying if we said we didn't think this apartment was absolutely gorgeous. The design's timeless. That said, it's a co-op, so you'll have to partake in a new owner interview before you can write a check. There's also no pets or renting. Monthly HOA dues are $1,385. It's been on the market 41 days.
6) 2610 Post Street

5) 2541 California Street, #1
Asking price: $995,000

2) 2470 Bush Street, Unit A
Asking price: $549,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath
