The Ten Least Expensive Properties For Sale in the Tendernob

New, 4 comments

This week we'll be exploring the top ten cheapest properties currently for sale in the Tendernob. All the homes we're sharing are up for grabs, meaning we didn't include any listing that has a sale that's pending. We're happy to report that every single abode on this list made it into our prestigious Under 500K Club. We'll be showing you properties in the area above (though the realtors officially call this hilly neighborhood 'Downtown'). Let's get this party started!

10) 1155 Pine Street, #6
Asking price: $495,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 682-square-feet
Price per square foot: $726
The skinny: This Edwardian condo has been on the market 12 days. It has classic Victorian details like high ceilings and a bay window in the bedroom. There's also a wood burning fireplace. We should point out that this is the first time we've seen a "quick stroll to the new Trader Joe's/CVS megastore" as a selling point. Construction on the Trader Joe's/CVS space hasn't even begun yet. Monthly HOA dues are $359 and there's 1-car parking nearby if you want to shell out $280 per month.

9) 900 Bush Street, #818
Asking price: $480,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 648-square-feet
Price per square foot: $741
The skinny: First listed in April for $499,000, this unit took a price chop earlier this month. It's a top floor condo. Unit highlights include a walkout balcony and "good finishes." Building amenities include 24-hour security, fitness center, pool, and spacious garden area. Monthly HOA dues are $742 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.

8) 1177 California Street, #702
Asking price: $470,000
Size: 0-bed, 1-bath, 511-square-feet
Price per square foot: $920
The skinny: This is an excellent studio condo that really maximizes the square footage. The current layout provides ample seating for both entertaining and dining, and the sleeping alcove is large enough to fit a ed, two nightstands and a small office area. Our only gripe is the golden bathroom hardware. Building amenities include 24-hour doorman, gym, and indoor spa and pool. Monthly HOA dues are $753 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.

7) 81 Frank Norris Street, #602
Asking price: $449,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 522-square-feet
Price per square foot: $860
The skinny: This is one of many units we'll be showing you at 81 Frank Norris. This unit's got a catch; at least one of the occupants must be 55 years of age or older, but not necessarily the owner of the condo. Monthly HOA dues are $366 and there's no mention of parking.

6) 1145 Pine Street, #22
Asking price: $420,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 600-square-feet
Price per square foot: $700
The skinny: The Edwardian flat features hardwood flooring and a huge walk-in closet. The kitchen needs some serious updating. Monthly HOA dues are $270 (but paid on a quarterly basis) and there's no mention of parking. This unit's been on and off the market since May of 2010.

5) 81 Frank Norris Street, #403
Asking price: $362,500
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 704-square-feet
Price per square foot: $515
The skinny: Again, this unit's catch is that the occupant must be 55 years of age or older. Monthly HOA dues are $422 and there's no parking.

4) 901 Bush Street, #506
Asking price: $359,000
Size: 0-bed, 1-bath, 341-square-feet
Price per square foot: $1,053
The skinny: This is the last unit remaining in a building that was converted to condos in 2008. This condo's sleek. There's CaesarStone countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and designer finishes in the bathroom. Monthly HOA dues are $283 and there's no mention of parking.

3) 900 Bush Street, #111
Asking price: $325,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 652-square-feet
Price per square foot: $498
The skinny: This unit's a short sale. Listing information tells us that it's "ideal for professionals, singles, couples and retiree's." So don't have children that live with you, basically. Building amenities include 24-hour security, concierge services, heated swimming pool, gym, and outdoor patios. Monthly HOA dues are $694 and there's 1-car parking in the garage.

2) 81 Frank Norris Street, #203
Asking price: $319,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 724-square-feet
Price per square foot: $441
The skinny: Again, you must be 55 years or older to live here. We should also point out that this unit's tenant occupied and it's been on and off the market since early 2010. Monthly HOA dues are $439 and there's no mention of parking.

1) 1314 Polk Street, #304
Asking price: $230,000
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 632-square-feet
Price per square foot: $383
The skinny: Again, this is Frank Norris Place, so at least one of the occupants must be 55 years of age or older. However, you don't have to meet that requirement to purchase the condo. Monthly HOA dues are $364 and there's no mention of parking.
