Less than three months ago, the three-bedroom townhouse at 99 Garnett Terrace in the Bayview was sold at foreclosure auction for $401,300. A quick but effective remodel has left it with new floors and lighting and a remodeled kitchen and bathrooms. The house now feels fresh and modern inside, and it has reappeared on the marking asking just $595,000, or a very low $373 per square foot. The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac that isn't super-accessible to public transportation, but it is right next to Hilltop Park and has partial bay views from the backyard.
The townhouse community that the home sits in was built by the San Francisco Housing Development Corporation to revitalize this corner of the Bayview and provide attainable housing options to community members. Now, however, its interiors and staging look to be trying to attract a somewhat different audience. The kitchen has quartz countertops and subway tile floors, stainless steel appliances have been installed, and fancy light fixtures have been hung. The large master bedroom has its own ensuite, and the two smaller bedrooms have leafy views. There's also a big one-car garage.
