Listed for: $6.5M
Size: 5-bed, 5.5-bath, 5,933-square-foot single-family home
Location: 625 Duncan St, Noe Valley
The skinny: Last week's biggest sale is really a disappointment in disguise: What was once Noe Valley's most expensive home, with a prior sale price of $7 million, is now in a state of disarray. After that sale in 2014, the home reappeared less than a year later for only $6.5 million in a state the brokerbabble described as "stripped out in some areas to allow for alterations." Half under-construction homes not being buyers' first choice, the property took a $1M price cut and finally settled for $4.4 million, a full $2.6 million below the 2014 sale price. We hope the new buyers (and their new contractor) are very happy together.
Listed for: $3.995M
Size: 5-bed, 3.5-bath, 3,350-square-foot single-family home
Location: 4065 25th St, Noe Valley
The skinny: Sitting two blocks from Noe's 24th Street corridor, this five-bedroom abode last changed hands for $2.75 million in 2007. The 1905 row house maintains its traditional facade, but inside everything's brand-new looking, with white oak floors, radiant heat, and 10-foot-tall sliding window-doors. Unless the new owners share the sellers' taste in mauve, the bedroom should be getting a new coat of paint right about five minutes ago.
Listed for: $3.8M
Size: 4-bed, 3-bath, 3,017-square-foot single-family home
Location: 75 Rico Way, the Marina
The skinny: This otherwise lovely Marina four-bedroom received a curious makeover after selling in August 2013 for $3.15 million. The home swiftly reappeared on the market sporting new, garish coats of orange and turquoise paint and an equally mismatched new asking price of $3.8 million. That didn't work out so well, so the sellers gave the place a makeunder and relisted for $3.595 million last month, which finally did the trick.
