The skinny: A veteran of our 10 Most Expensive Residences in San Francisco map, this Georgian built in 1919 changed hands after spending a better part of a decade tiptoeing on and off the market. After selling in 1992 for $2.7M, it re-entered the fray in 2007. All that price history is invisible (hmmm), save last September's ask of $10.95M. The ask dropped in May to $9.95M, and the current buyer knocked another $450K off the price. Lots of original plasterwork to love, plus a master bedroom so large you need binoculars to see the other side.

The skinny: As you recall, the manse formerly known as Meg Ryan's (and Dennis Quaid's, whatever) changed hands last week. The Queen Anne, last occupied by the now-ex-couple sometime in the 90s, took a $770K chop to the price but sold in a matter of weeks, much like a rom-com script on its sixth rewrite.

The skinny: Any other week, this sale would be tops, but this property is maybe getting a little used to disappointment. After selling in 2011 for $3.3M and undergoing a big renovation, it listed in May for an eager $8.995M. No one came to the party, and a month later it stripped off $645K—enough to entice a suitor for an additional $600K drop.
