Last Week's Biggest Sales: Slumming at the $2M Mark

Listed for: $1.875M
Received: $2,200,001
Size: 3-bed, 2-bath, 2,413-square-foot single-family home
Location: 201 Arkansas St, Potrero Hill
The skinny: The fall selling season kicked off after Labor Day, dumping more than 300 homes on the market in the first week of September, but the buying season apparently has not caught up yet. Thanks to the lag, this little North Slope home takes its bow as the week's top sale, bringing in a just-slightly-fussy $325,001 over asking. The home, which last sold in 2008 for $1.299M, has an open floor plan, a Viking range, and a kitchen with a color scheme that is not on speaking terms with itself.

Listed for: $1.795M
Received: $2.1M
Size: 3-bed, 1.5-bath, 1,880-square-foot single-family home
Location: 38 Liberty St, Eureka Valley
The skinny: According to the brokerbabble, which has it straight from the seller, this home is the oldest on the block, hailing all the way back from 1876. That makes it an extra shame that the MLS has no pictures to offer. No price history to speak of either—just the bubbly enthusiasm behind this rather inapropos pitch: "Who needs Paris when you live here?!"

Listed for: $1.948M
Received: $2.05M
Size: 2-bed, 2.5-bath, 1,715-square-foot condo
Location: 1150 Lombard St #5, Russian Hill
The skinny: Here's a ground-floor townhouse in the Lombardia with a wood-burning fireplace and a terrace off the kitchen. The brokerbabble says it's one of the largest condos in the building, which is the kind of thing you say when there isn't much of a view. Last seen on the market in 2010 for $1.78M, the property took a price chop, delisted, and regrouped for a few years. This time it went for just a smidge over asking, so cheers and everything.
