These San Francisco houses bought for lower than $1M in November

Six-figure homes in San Francisco are an ultra-rare commodity, as our monthly perusal through Zillow listings has repeatedly proved. In November 2022, at least 11 properties sold for less than $1 million; as far as the world’s eighth-most expensive city is concerned, that’s actually (sadly) a solid number.

What does a home in the high hundreds of thousands of dollars actually get you, though? Usually, a few bedrooms, one bath (sometimes two) and, if you’re lucky, some refurbished interior space.

Below, check out our November Zillow findings, including a Potrero Hill steal, and some deeply depressing reality checks about how much these same properties went for in recent decades.

2034 19th Ave.

Neighborhood: Sunset District

Sold for: $905,000

The listing describes this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home as “livable but ready for a makeover.” If that doesn’t quite entice you, the bay windows on both floors and the fairly ample kitchen counter space might.

1998 25th St

Neighborhood: Potrero Hill

Sold for:

This semi-attached corner lot has five bedrooms and two baths across a surprisingly robust 2,285 square feet. It has a basement storage area, plus a studio/workshop lower level, a main level with a patio attachment and two (tiny) bedrooms on the top floor. Hard to find many San Francisco homes under seven figures with this much space.

448 Holladay Ave.

Neighborhood: Bernal Heights

Sold for:

There’s lots of work to be done at this property, which is marketed as a “contractor special” that could turn into either a five-bedroom, three-bathroom home or a triplex for an aspiring landlord. For now, there’s not much to speak of interior-wise.

178 Sadowa St.

Neighborhood: ocean view

Sold for: $938,000

It’s impossible to miss this brightly colored two-story property: a two-bedroom, one-bathroom home with refinished hardwood floors and an updated kitchen. For comparison’s sake, according to Zillow, 178 Sadowa St. sold in 1994 for $225,000. Small difference.
