While we're big fans of sharing the ten cheapest abodes of a particular neighborhood with you, we've run out of large neighborhoods to comb through. For now, we'll be sticking to small nabes, which means less listings. Today we'll be sharing the top 5 least expensive properties for sale in the Lower Haight. As always, we won't be including any property that has a sale that's currently pending. We're sticking to homes between Gough and Divisadero streets and Oak Street to Market Street and Duboce Avenue. Real estate agents will tell us that we're in Hayes Valley territory, but you, the readers, can squabble over our boundaries in the comments. Let's get this party started.
5) 219 Page Street
Asking price: $749,000
Size: 3-bed, 1.25-bath; 1,275 square feet
Price per square foot: $587
The skinny: At $587 per square this condo's just a touch above the neighborhood average of $564. The home last sold in 2009 for $763,000. There's hardwood flooring throughout (even the kitchen!); lots of period details (the building was built in 1900) like crown moulding, bay windows, coved ceilings and built-in cabinetry. Broker babble tells us that there's leased parking in place that's prepaid for six months in a private garage off Hayes Street. Monthly HOA dues are $200 and after six months you have to pay $295 per month for parking.
4) 716 Page Street
Asking price: $680,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath; 1,250 square feet
Price per square foot: $544
The skinny: This unit is a TIC in a 3-unit Edwardian building. We should point out that #3 on this list is in the same building. Property highlights include "old-world craftsmanship" and a "pleasing view of the shared rear garden." TIC group was established in 2005 and it's been in the lottery 4 times. Monthly HOA dues are $100.50 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.
3) 714 Page Street
Asking price: $599,500
Size: 3-bed, 1-bath; 1,150 square feet
Price per square foot: $521
The skinny: This is the lower unit in the TIC building mentioned above. It's had a contemporary makeover to bring it up to today's modern lifestyle. No parking, but there's a space 1 block away for $280 a month. Monthly HOA dues are $87.
2) 11 Germania Street
Asking price: $515,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath; unlisted square footage
Price per square foot: Unavailable
The skinny: Another TIC! This one's in a 6-unit Edwardian. We have to admit, we're BIG fans of Germania alley. It's beyond adorable. This home has a nice mix of Edwardian details and modern amenities like a stainless steel fridge. Monthly HOA dues are $205.85 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.
1) 65 Hermann Street, #10
Asking price: $499,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath; 877 square feet
Price per square foot: $569
The skinny: We're pretty into this Mid-Century modern building, something you don't see a lot of in this neighborhood. The unit's great. Firstly, it's a member of our Under 500K Club. Second, it's not a TIC or a short sale. And third, the current owner has paid the HOA dues through July 2013, score! Monthly HOA dues will eventually be $346 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.
