It's been about six months since we checked in with Russian Hill's most inexpensive residential real estate. Last time we visited the cheapest abode available was $608,000 and the most expensive (on a list of the ten least expensive in the neighborhood) was $1,395,000. All but one of the properties on that list have sold, and the only one that still remains is in contract. Now things are a bit different. You'll notice that this time around we've got some pretty pricey real estate, perhaps with the anticipation of some sailing lover handing over a big chunk of change for a great view of the upcoming America's Cup races. Who knows. To the right (click the map for a larger view), a view of the boundaries set by the realtors. Onwards!
