These San Francisco properties bought for lower than $1M in October

There have been whispers of cooling housing and rental prices in the San Francisco Bay Area, but that hasn’t yet translated into practical, noticeable dips for residents on the hunt for something even remotely affordable. In fact, even homes under $1 million — still an enormous, largely unattainable sum of money for many — are almost impossible to come by in San Francisco. To illustrate that point even further, and to show what you can get for less than seven figures, we compiled a list of six-figure homes that sold in the month of October, according to Zillow.

Some of the homes offer more than others, as you’ll see. None are larger than about 1,300 square feet. And a few include interesting amenities, like a surprisingly spacious garden area. See the full list below.

350 Howth St

Neighborhood: ocean view

Sold for: $975,000

This two-bedroom, one-bath home was recently on the market for the first time in 50 years, according to the listing agents. It was originally priced at $1.2 million in July, but sold for well under that. Described as the “perfect starter home,” it’s got lots of carpeted space, a solid sized kitchen, and an odd washer/dryer room with a treadmill and what appears to be a shower in the corner. So a nice little backyard!

146 Vienna St.

Neighborhood: Excelsior

Sold for: $900,000

With three beds and two baths, this 1,329-square-foot home is, believe it or not, larger than most of its competitors in the under $1 million price range. It’s a two-story property in need of some TLC to clean up the interior, and many of the rooms don’t have ample natural lighting. It does include a covered patio and garage, though.

394 Capistrano Ave.

Neighborhood: Mission Terrace

Sold for: $935,000

A two-bedroom, one-bathroom property flanked by two palm trees out front. The listing says you have to walk through the car garage to get to the bathroom, which doesn’t seem ideal. This sold for under the original asking price of $1.1 million.

879 Rolph St.

Neighborhood: Crocker Amazon

Sold for: $918,000

A sleek, updated two-bedroom, one-bathroom home with pretty backyard views, a garden, a deck and a storage area. The kitchen has lots and lots of natural light, but it’s tiny. The bathroom also appears to be quite small.

Neighborhood: Sunnydale

Sold for: $883,000
