Good News, Everybody! That “$3 Million Farmhouse” at 10th and Balboa Sold for LESS Than Asking Price in 2014

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Oh, wait a sec, maybe that’s BAD news – it depends on who you are.

Anyway, here’s proof that it’s possible to buy a place in Frisco for less than asking price in the Year Of Our Lord 2014:

One of the asking prices was the “lucky” number of $2,888,888.88, IIRC.

(IDK, if I were living out in the Avenues with dial-up internet and didn’t have the option of getting AT&T U-Verse, I think a big green utility box would look better than these blue benches, just saying.)

And the Richmond District’s Biggest Illegal Parking Violator is … Giorgio’s Pizzeria, 151 Clement Street

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

When I come across Giorgio of Giorgio’s Pizzeria, I’ll say, “Hey Gio, how come you ain’t got no brothers up on the wall here?”

And then, regardless of the answer, I’ll follow up with a question about why he doesn’t arrange for a place to park his Prius and whatever delivery vehicles, you know, legally.

(In mitigation, this joint is a viable institution of the Richmond District and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it if you’re looking for an old-school pizza place out in the Avenues…)

Here it is, the Inner Richmond farmhouse at 594 10th Avenue what’s worth $2,888,888.88 or whatever, as seen on a dread sunny day:

And oh yes, this crib is just perfect for “entertaining dignitaries.” (And then when that’s over, just head up two blocks to Geary to the prostitution sector for a “happy endings” massage to, you know, complete the soiree!)

And I’m not objecting to the price, I’m objecting to the price for this, this monument to real estate obsolescence at this particular location. Now if you want to drag this thing northeast to a few blocks above California, well then you might have something, Climb Realty.

To reiterate, sometimes I just don’t know…

Lost Tourist Takes His $1200 Bay Area Bike Share Bicycle Miles Away from Nearest Station – A $13 Joyride?

Monday, November 11th, 2013

Did Dude come up Pine Street to get to the Inner Richmond? Sure looks that way.

That means he’s spending $13 minimum for this joyride.

I mean, that’s prolly more than I’ve spent on BABS so far. (Now how much are we spending on this program per person? I have no idea.)

Anyway, this is the farthest west I’ve seen one of these rides:

A Scary Sight from the Inner Richmond: Vaunted V-12 Mercedes Benz Depreciates More Than 90% in Just a Decade

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

You could buy a new Nissan Versa for like $2k.

Or you could purchase the former top-of-the-line Mercedes Benz from 10 years ago for $12.5 or less.

This CL 600 went for over $130k new:

And now it’s a lot queen, a maintenance nightmare.
