San Bruno Rocking The Overbids!

Ok, yes, I def sensed the older homes part of it and you are right, I would prefer the side by side garages. If I am going to do all this and move, I mind as well focus on the areas with the better weather, so Crestmoor 3 is probably it right? I went to a decent home on Allen Street or Drive by Skyline College and chatted with the neighbor after. Cool, retired SF policeman who remodeled his home to be a monster home. He said yesterday’s nice weather, fuuuuugetaboutit!!! He said if I live in the Sunset it is like that typically in summer around there. Ok, take that part of SB off the list…

Buri buri has a 9 score in elementary school rating , do you think it’s a legit number?


#243

Crestmoor is your best bet to avoid the fog from ssn bruno


#244

Hey @sfdragonboy and @Elt1 - remember that non-Eichler flattop fixer in the Crestmoor area we had discussed earlier? It finally closed today at $1.15M, or $351K above listing.

Looks like Melanie did ok for her client…

How’s the hunting going, @adc? Are you the one who pended Bennington?:slight_smile:

I am looking into the viability of me tapping my equity fully from my primary home and using that to buy upfront my exchange property. A conventional exchange is going to be hard to pull off in this hot market. I don’t know why we didn’t think about this strategy sooner.

Hi @adc,

This looks interesting if you like to be close to nature…

Does flipper make money on this one? it was a 2 month quick turn around, and only sold for $237K higher than purchase price, with a complete remodel.


#248

Yes, can do a whole lot with 200k… Also, the original house was already in pretty decent shape.


#249

God, San Bruno hitting $1K/sq ft now…


#250

@sfdragonboy have you given up on SB already? How about buying a piece of land in your Fab7x7 and build your dream house, preferably pre-fab?


#251

I think that might be too much hassle for a homebuyer. Even for a flipper. It’s for hardcore developers only.


#252

No, haven’t given up but I am deterred by the high pricing. Come on, I bought my Sunset home for 600K. Is a SB home worth 2X that? Hard to grasp that possible fact…Like you, I may end up in Millbrae…


#253

Really??? I got my sunset home for 600k too! :rofl:


#254

That I can get behind! Time for an upgraded Chinatown experience my friend!


#255

Sounds like you got the better deal…(Mr Rousseau, Inner Sunset)…


#256

I think the suburbia phase is simply that…a prelude before heading back to Chinatown. Got to get the grilling and grass out of my system before I really do get old…


#257

But @sfdragonboy… by that logic, you could also ask if Millbrae is worth 2.5X your Sunset home or if Burlingame is worth 3X your Sunset home. :slight_smile:


#258

Well, Millbrae seems to be “worth it” since on resale at least you have the schools for those folks who want it. Only a small pocket in SB filters to Millbrae schools (I was told). Burlingame is simply too expensive for what I want to do. If I can get in for under 1.5M, somewhere, and the house is nice, that would be an achievement. The fact is, there is not a lot coming online in SB at the moment unlike say Daly City where I am seeing more stuff but I am not digging the weather (mind as well stay in the Sunset).

How are you doing with your search?


#259

Reports like this is not helping… (San Bruno is up there on the list too)

I found a property in the San Bruno hills area that I liked enough to be the winning bidder! Moving from a small & noisy Millbrae condo to a SFH in the San Bruno hills.
