The Ten Cheapest Properties for Sale Right Now in the Sunset

View as Map

With the recent news of the Sunset District Blueprint—which if it's (ever!) adopted would bring upwards of 1,000 new homes to the neighborhood—we got curious about current housing prices in the Sunset. Unlike last week's one-night stand with the one-bed condos of the Mission, today's Sunset tour features mostly single-family homes, the teensiest of which is a two-bedroom, with quite a few three- and four-beds (plus one fiver). If you're spoiled by the artfully staged photos of Pac Heights Victorians and flipper-baiting Edwardians in Noe, you won't see many Carrara countertops and starburst mirrors here—or even many photos at all—but here the prices per square foot hover around the $500 mark. So a break from photoporn and have a look around the world of numeric titillation!

2733 Ortega St 3BR House

Copy Link

Asking price: $749K
Size: 3-bed, 1-bath, 1,050-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $713
The skinny: On the cusp of Parkside, this three-bedroom promises refinished hardwoods and a “newish” kitchen. The bedrooms may be tiny—we can’t tell because so many of the photos are vertical.

2527 Moraga St 5BR House

Copy Link

Asking price: $799K
Size: 5-bed, 2-bath, 1,907-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $419
The skinny: No interior photos here; did the broker even go inside? However, we’re assured that the obviously neglected yard is “low maintenance.”

4115 Kirkham St 4BR House

Copy Link

Asking price: $799K
Size: 4-bed, 2-bath, 1,700-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $470
The skinny: This spacious midcentury home has been in the same family since it was built in 1956. Good light, hardwoods floor throughout, and an “older” kitchen—for one of the lower prices per square we’ve seen.

1255 38th Ave 3BR House

Copy Link

Asking price: $799K
Size: 3-bed, 2-bath, 1,640-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $487
The skinny: This home may hail from the Outer Sunset, but the brokerbabble wishes to inform you of its cray “Marina style”! We’ll dial that back a bit and say the interiors are pretty sharp looking, the kitchen is huge, and the bedrooms get a ton of light. Also, are those baseboards supertall, or perhaps just some extremely junior wainscoting?

1734 38th Ave 4BR House

Copy Link

Asking price: $799.5K
Size: 4-bed, 2-bath, 1,510-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $529
The skinny: Though it lacks curb appeal, this four-bedroom Outer Sunset home has a cheery interior, with wood floors, handsome rounded doorways, and some nice molding touches.

1534 32nd Ave 3BR House

Copy Link

Asking price: $849K
Size: 3-bed, 2.25-bath, 1,450-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $586
The skinny: Last sold for $275K in 1995, this Mediterranean-style three-bedroom has its primary living quarters on the top floor. There’s an in-law unit on the ground level with a full bath and its own entrance—and, whaddaya know, a month-to-month tenant. Consolation prize: There’s an apple tree in the backyard.

2625 Noriega St 3BR House

Copy Link

Asking price: $850K
Size: 3-bed, 2-bath, 1,650-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $515
The skinny: Features include skylights, an elevator, and a legal in-law apartment. Not to worry: the brokerbabble swears all the nightmare-pink furniture will be gone by move-in.

1427 11th Ave 2BR House

Copy Link

Asking price: $939K
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath, 1,440-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $652
The skinny: Uh-oh, this duplex is being marketed as a “development opportunity.” There are no real photos to be seen because the seller had plans drawn for a three-story home with 3,000 square feet plus a garage. Also has a month-to-month tenant in the rear unit! Which perhaps explains the markdown from the old list price of $995K.

1695 Funston Ave 4BR Condo

Copy Link

Asking price: $839K
Size: 3-bed, 2.5-bath, 1,096-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $766
The skinny: On the cusp of Golden Gate Heights lies this condo in a four-unit building with newly refinished hardwoods, a wood-burning fireplace, two-car parking, and a private roof deck. But beware of bad juju—this one’s a foreclosure, which explains the drive-by look to the photos.

1746 23rd Ave 3BR House

Copy Link

Asking price: $985K
Size: 3-bed, 1-bath, 1,585-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $621
