The Ten Least Expensive Properties For Sale in Bernal Heights

New, 4 comments

This week we're heading up a hill to check out the current residential real estate scene in Bernal Heights. At first we thought there was a plethora of inventory, but it turns out a good portion (and the least expensive) of the listings were for land, not homes on land. Boundaries are above (you can click the map for a larger view) and are set by the realtors. As always, no property with a sale that's currently pending were included on this list. Onwards!

10) 3 College Terrace
Asking price: $819,000
Size: 2-bed, 1.5-bath, 1,730 sq. ft. single-family home
Price per square foot: $473
The skinny: Aha! Straight out the gate and we have our first questionable location. The listing states that this Edwardian home is "conveniently located between Bernal Heights and Glen Park," so there's that. We're loving that the home's interior is in great condition and has not been stripped of all its original architectural charm, meaning there's built-ins and ornate moulding galore. It's been on the market since July 30.

9) 165 Ripley Street
Asking price: $729,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath, 1,225 sq. ft. condo
Price per square foot: $595
The skinny: The listing tells us that this airy abode is "very special," probably because it's located on the crest of Bernal's north slope and has "MILLION-DOLLAR VIEWS" which you can see in the listing photos. Monthly HOA dues are not listed and there's 2-car (tandem) parking in the garage. This home's been on the market since August 20.

8) 111 Montcalm Street
Asking price: $725,000
Size: 3-bed, 2-bath, 1,183 sq. ft. single-family home
Price per square foot: $613
The skinny: This home's exterior could use a little curb appeal, but the interior is pretty solid. The kitchen's appliances have been upgraded and there's an adorable sunroom. Unfortunately (well, we happen to like foliage) the yard and broad driveway are concrete, but the listing tells us that that means it's "ideal for boat/RV parking." This home's been on the market since August 17.

7) 681 Peralta Avenue
Asking price: $699,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath, 1,222 sq. ft. single-family home
Price per square foot: $572
The skinny: This Mid-Century modern home has been updated to meet all your contemporary needs, like shiny stainless steel appliances and new frosted metal fixtures in the bathroom. We should definitely point out that there's an unwarranted 1-bed, 1-bath apartment on the lower level, and it's got the laundry room. The listing tells us that "architect plans are available to turn the space into your dream Master Suite." The home's been on the market 3 days.

6) 24 Bennington Street
Asking price: $699,000
Size: 4-bed, 2-bath, 2,100 sq. ft. single-family home
Price per square foot: $333
The skinny: Spoiler alert: this home's a short sale. Not sure what that is? Talk to your realtor and make sure they're a pro at short sale procedures, as it's a long and sometimes painful process. Unfortunately the listing doesn't have any interior photos, but we're digging the exterior of the building. The house sits on an extended lot that backs up to Bocana. It's been on the market 5 days.

5) 117 Coleridge Street
Asking price: $699,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath, 1,500 sq. ft. single-family home
Price per square foot: $466
The skinny: This is a charming 1920's home with all of the original mouldings, built-ins and hardwood flooring, even though the floors are covered with mossy green carpet that we're dying to rip out. The enthusiastic listing tells us that this abode's "now a cosmetic fixer" and presents a "fantastic opportunity to salvage, while updating for a modern lifestyle." We can dig that. It's been on the market 17 days.

4) 3239 Mission street, #7
Asking price: $599,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath, 1,042 sq. ft. condo
Price per square foot: $575
The skinny: We're not entirely sure our Bernal Heights boundaries experts would agree that this property's within the boundaries set by the residents of the neighborhood, but again, the above boundaries are set by the realtors, not us. This is a modern condo with a unit above and below, and the below tenant is a hair salon, so no worries if you want to stomp around your condo in clogs after midnight. We're actually loving the interiors and the super spacious kitchen and living room. Monthly HOA dues are $335 and there's 1-car parking in the garage. It's been on the market 4 days.

3) 25 Richland Avenue
Asking price: $599,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath condo, unlisted square footage
Price per square foot: Unavailable
The skinny: Another listing telling us that this condo's "conveniently located between the popular Bernal Heights and Glen Park neighborhoods." This flat has many Edwardian details, including coved ceilings, softwood floors, wainscoting, built-ins, and a wood burning fireplace. Bonus: there's a large room deeded to the unit that overlooks the shared garden. Monthly HOA dues are $200 a month and there's 1-car tandem parking. It's been on the market 5 days.

2) 34 Porter Street
Asking price: $500,000
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath, 1,488 sq. ft. single-family home
Price per square foot: $336
The skinny: It's a short sale. Unfortunately for us and you there is only one photo of the place, and it's to the right. There's also no listing information, so we have no idea what state the interiors are in. It's been on the market 13 days.

1) 212 Putnam Street
Asking price: $478,000
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath, 1,024 sq. ft. single-family home
Price per square foot: $467
The skinny: Welp, there's not much to be known about this abode either. There's only one photo, and it's crappy. All we can get from Google Street View is the impression that the current owner has a thing for potted plants. We're digging that it's across the street from the Alemany Farmers' Market. The listing tells us that the seller said they did a $15,000 upgrade a couple of months ago, but it doesn't go into specifics. It's been on the market 179 days.
