Though the Mission ain't exactly cheap, we did scrounge around for the 10 least expensive properties (oh, semantics!) for sale right now. The good news is that all are under the 1-mil mark, and the bad news is that the great majority are one-bedroom condos. But! Some sweet two-bedrooms and a pair of highly decent lofts can be had once you relent and join the Over $500K Club (and who hasn't by now?). If you like company, you can find 113 neighbors—at Vida, of course—or none at all, unless you count the gnomes that are likely living in the unfinished basement in this rather offputting stucco box.Read More
The Ten Least Expensive Properties for Sale in the Mission
14th St 2BR Condo
Asking price: $549K
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath
Price per square foot: N/A
The skinny: There aren’t any pictures of this recent condo conversion, but we’re guessing from the higher bedroom count (2) and the price that this, our cheapest listing today, is a basement unit.
Mission St 1BR Condo (#415)
Asking price: $599K
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath 494-square-foot condo
Price per square foot: $1,213
The skinny: This is the cheapest of the three Vida listings in today’s top 10, and the broker doesn’t bother with specifics on the one-bedroom on offer. At 494 square feet, it’s pretty minuscule. Buyers will want to count on spreading out on the roof deck, weather permitting.
South Van Ness 1BR Condo
Asking price: $615K
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 734-square-foot condo
Price per square foot: $838
The skinny: Finally, something a bit roomier: This one-bedroom clears 700SF, and it’s an end unit, so there’s more light, plus a deeded parking for one car. The rooftop solar array will juice your conscience, too.
Bartlett St 2BR Condo
Asking price: $659K
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath, 798-square-foot condo
Price per square foot: $826
The skinny: For $659K you’ll land solidly in two-bedroom territory. This sunny Edwardian just around the corner from Mission has been remade with contemporary guts, complete with a coat of sunny yellow paint to take your mind (and eyes) off the low ceilings. The shared roof deck handily decompresses that situation, though.
Mission St 1BR Condo (#204)
Asking price: $699K
Size: 1-bed, 1-bath, 680-square-foot condo
Price per square foot: $1,028
The skinny: At Vida, $699K will net you a larger one-bedroom in what the brokerbabble touts as the block’s tallest building. Is that something we’re all bragging about now?
Potrero Ave 3BR Home
Asking price: $779K
Size: 3-bed, 1-bath single-family home
Price per square foot: N/A
The skinny: Despite the realtor vote of no confidence (just the one exterior photo, and 102 days on the market!), we stayed long enough to read about this listing’s views of Twin Peaks and partial (yay?) hardwood floors. There’s a fireplace, too, and what sounds like an unfinished basement.
Harrison St 1BR Loft
Asking price: $788K
Size: 1-bed, 1.5-bath, 1,076-square-foot loft
Price per square foot: $732
The skinny: This supertall loft comes with loads of storage, both in the condo and elsewhere in the building, and a petite terrace. Note: must love glass block.
Minna St 2BR Condo
Asking price: $849K
Size: 2-bed, 1-bath, 950-square-foot condo
Price per square foot: $894
The skinny: As we inch toward the $1M mark, the places are getting spiffier, but this one’s maybe just a bit too close to 101. Nevertheless, it’s a lovely condo in a 1907 Victorian with some geometric wainscoting, plus views of actual trees and what just might be a deck.
Hampshire St 1 BR Loft
Asking price: $875K
Size: 1-bed, 2-bath, 1,170-square-foot loft
Price per square foot: $748
The skinny: Now here’s your classic loft: This sunny one-bedroom boasts high ceilings, big windows, polished concrete floors, and windows on three sides. Positively drenched in light, we are assured!
Mission St 2BR Condo (#208)
Asking price: $899K
Size: 2-bed, 2-bath, 872-square-foot condo
Price per square foot: $1,031
The skinny: Vida rears its head one more time with a two-bedroom, but as usual the listing’s mum on the specifics.
