The Top Ten Least Expensive Properties For Sale in Noe Valley

New, 6 comments

The last time we combed through Noe Valley's listings to find you the cheapest abodes was way back in November of last year. Because Noe Valley's real estate scene is hot like fire right now, not a single property we featured back in November is still on the market. Another interesting fact, eight of the ten properties on the list have been on the market for less than a month, and four just arrived this week. We should also mention that not a single property on this list is under 500K, not even the fixer-uppers. Last November's range was $419,000 to $739,000, this week it's $559,000 to $1,295,000.

Today we'll be showing you the top ten least expensive homes in Noe Valley. All the homes listed are up for grabs, meaning we didn't include any listing that has a sale that's currently pending. Neighborhood boundaries can be see above. Special note: while we do include properties that have an inlaw, we do not include properties that have more than two units per building. Onwards!

10) 3957 22nd Street
Asking price: $1,295,000
Size: 3-bed, 2-bath; 2,121-square-feet
Price per square foot: $611
The skinny: Noe Valley's average price per square foot is $799, so we're off to a good start. We recently featured this tour's open house in our Weekend Open House Report: Quirky Edition. While we're quite smitten with the eclectic design style and colorful exterior and interior, we know it's not for everybody. That said, cheap and quick fix. It's been on the market 12 days.

9) 255 Chattanooga Street
Asking price: $1,245,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath; 1,575-square-feet
Price per square foot: $790
The skinny: Unfortunately the listing lacks any photos of the interior rooms, but does have closeups of details of all the Victorian details you'd associate with a property that was built in 1880. It's been on the market 5 days.

8) 5027 Diamond Heights Boulevard
Asking price: $1,099,000
Size: 3-bed, 2.5-bath; 2,173-square-feet
Price per square foot: $506
The skinny: Well, this could technically be Diamond Heights, not Noe Valley. You be the judge. This is a remodeled townhouse that has something we're quite fond of: sunken living room. Those things are the best! Monthly HOA dues are $506 and there's a 2-car garage. It's been on the market for 26 days.

7) 160-162 28th Street
Asking price: $1,099,000
Size: 1,317-square-feet
Price per square foot: $834
The skinny: This is a lot with two houses on it, both are tenant occupied. Each home has upper and lower floors and two-car tandem garages. One unit rents for $2,000 and the other for $1,700. It's been on the market for years.

6) 1650 Dolores Street
Asking price: $979,000
Size: 2-bed, 1.5-bath; 1,601-square-feet
Price per square foot: $611
The skinny: This is an Edwardian top floor condo has views of the Dolores Street palms. It's got great period details like a wood-burning fireplace, ornate mouldings, and hardwood floors. Monthly HOA dues are $250 and there's 1-car parking in the garage. It's been on the market 5 days.

5) 655 27th Street
Asking price: $949,000
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath; unlisted
Price per square foot: Unavailable
The skinny: Described as a "fab Art Deco mid-century gem," we don't think any Art Deco or Mid-Century modern features are found on the property, outside or in. You're probably going to want to rip out the carpet that covers the floors in the living spaces, including the dining room. There's a garage-level room with bathroom, no word on if it's warranted or not. It's been on the market for 19 days.

4) 1258 Noe Street
Asking price: $879,000
Size: 2-bed, 1.5-bath; 1,267-square-feet
Price per square foot: $694
The skinny: This is an updated Marina-style full floor flat. As expected, period details like gum-wood wall trim, wainscoting, hardwood flooring with inlays, etc. The living room's got built-in bookcases and a wood-burning fireplace. Shared garden with the only other unit in the building. Monthly HOA dues are $135 and there's 1-car parking in the garage. It's been on the market 5 days.

3) 1164 Church Street
Asking price: $848,900
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath; 1,722-square-feet
Price per square foot: $494
The skinny: Only in San Francisco will a two bedroom fixer-upper be asking close to a million dollars. The 112-year-old home has a double parlor and formal basement. Extra bonus: full basement! And there's a rad wooden bathroom. "Offers due by 5/1 by noon," so get on it. It's been on the market for 1 day.

2) 538 28th Street
Asking price: $599,950
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath; 954-square-feet
Price per square foot: $629
The skinny: The photo to the right (click it for a larger version) is the only photo in the listing, and the listing doesn't tell us much either. We'll just copy the broker babble: "Will Not Be Available To Show Until June 1, 2012! Bring your contractors and developers to this Victorian cottage situated on top of the hill. 1 bedroom 1 bath home, with attic converted to addition living space. Currently tenant occupied and showings are to be negotiated, please do not disturb and/or crash! Drive by only for now and NO offers subject to physical inspection." It's been on the market 132 days.
