With a new year approaching, I figured now is a better time than ever to start throwing the thoughts and ideas that populate my skull onto the web. I’ll try to keep it tame but I can’t make any promises. Mostly I’ll be writing about what interests me, books and articles I’m currently reading, and stuff I’m doing. So that means you can look forward to a series of blog posts organized chaotically consisting primarily of random ramblings about philosophy, nutrition, fitness, real estate, investments, business, restaurants, etc.
Let’s start with this interesting blog post from Curbed SF about the Sunset District of SF. Turns out the neighborhood on the other side of the infamous GGP – My childhood stomping grounds – is the hottest real estate market in the US. According to new research from the Real Estate website Redfin, Sunset homes spent an average of 14 days on the market and received an average of 5.5 offers each. Nearly 88 percent of properties in the Sunset went for over asking in 2014, and 54.2 percent had multiple offers.
The Castro and Bernal Heights neighborhoods came in 2nd and 3rd respectively. San Francisco appears a total of 7 times in the top 30 most competitive neighborhoods for homebuyers rankings.
