We told you in mid-July that famed author Armistead Maupin and his husband Christopher Turner were going to put their iconic Craftsman on the market. The 3-bed, 2-bath, 1,606 sq. ft. home was listed a few days later asking $1,198,000. You'd be correct if you assumed that was a low asking price for a perfectly adorable piece of property in Parnassus Heights. It should come as no surprise then to learn that the home recently sold for $1,640,000, or 37% over the asking price. Coincidentally, the real estate agent responsible for the asking price and the sale is the same guy who sold that Eureka Valley fixer-upper for 65% over asking back in May. Meaning that it's fashionable right now to list low and entice a bidding war so a home sells for well above asking.
