St. Francis Wood, a Secret neighborhood in SF?

I read an article on SFGate.com today in 'On The Block'. It was about the 'Best Kept Secret' neighborhoods in SF and the 'hidden gems' you'll find there. The writer was getting their information from trulia.com. It was all about what the 'out of state' searches were not looking for, but where the 'locals' knew where to look for special places to live in San Francisco.

Luxury Homes94127, St. Francis Wood topped the list. Not surprised. It is a wonderful area rich in history as a planned community of the 1920s. Wide boulevards, beautiful large homes on tree-lined streets. And St. Francis Wood has an HOA, paid yearly that keeps the trees trimmed and does all the things the City doesn't do. St. Francis Wood is clearly a lux neighborhood, and its boundaries a very distinct.

The writer said the median price is $844,500. And the photo used as an example of homes typical in the area was of a FIXER located in Forest Hill Extension, listed at $599,000. Come on now, get your facts straight first before you write an article. If I'm not mistaken, On the Block is a local blog in a local newspaper - how could they get this so wrong!? Well, they listened to Trulia.com.....

Here's the real scoop. looking at homes sold in St. Francis Wood in the past 6 months, the median price is $1,493,525. The lowest is $1,350,000, and the highest is $2,225,000.

If you want the real facts about any San Francisco neighborhood, you need to consult with a local San Francisco Realtor. I can find those hidden gems, secret neighborhoods, and I know where the locals look!

John, so many times some of these "best kept secret" places are such wonderful places to live.  And... many times... the folks who live there hope nobody else finds out about it.  A nice place, peaceful, quiet, serene.  It's kind of "I'm here, now.  Ok, that's enough.  Nobody else."  LOL.

I just love places like this.

Hi Karen. San Francisco does have its famous and well known neighborhoods - Pacific Heights, Russian Hill, SOMA, South Beach.... but just like any other city, we have many different neighborhoods, many of them truly special in their own way.

Yes Roger, I had to laugh when they showed a fixer property and representative of homes in St. Francis Wood. Just amazing...
