Single parent on limited budget wants to move to Pacific Heights so daughter can attend school at the Convent.
Look for Pacific Heights coop, Tenancy in Common, or condo near school and other single family homes to keep cost down while maximizing property quality.
Purchased beautiful top floor 3 bedroom coop with 2 fireplaces and small view for $300,000 within walking distance to school. Minor cosmetic remodel refinishing floors, updating bath, fixtures and painting for approximately $20,000. Legacy Builders sells property for $740,000, which is $91,000 over asking and by far the highest price ever paid for any unit in the building.
Coop cost $300,000 / remodel cost $20,000 / sold $740,000
