Listed for: $2.199M
Size: 4-bed, 3.5-bath single-family home
Location: 152 Elsie St, Bernal Heights
The skinny: This new-construction single-family home sold in just a week's time, though according to the property history on the MLS, it's done some bouncing off and on the market without a sale. The whole place is basically about the views—to the bay, plus a clear shot to Sutro Tower from the soaking tub—which does take the edge off the cookie-cutterness somewhat. There's also a lovely mini-atrium with a skylight around the stair complete with super-dangly pendant lights.

Size: 3-bed, 3.5-bath, 2054-square-foot condo
Location: 857 Alabama St, Mission District
The skinny: This condo in a building put up in 2012 hasn't changed much since its original sale, for $1.6 million back in 2012—which probably helps explain why it didn't meet its original ask. The sellers did make one significant change, though: There's now a huge wraparound mural on the fence in the backyard.
Listed for: $2.195M
Size: 4-bed, 4.5-bath, 2,993-square-foot single-family home
Location: 583 Corbett Ave, Twin Peaks
The skinny: You know the market's still sluggish when an unstaged home makes it into the top three. This newish home (hailing from 2002) comes with a balcony overlooking downtown, a carpeted rec room perched over the living area, and a bedroom sporting what look like decals of black bars (or is that plaid meant to match the bedspread?).
