A perfect pied-a-terre, if you only stand on one foot

San Francisco continues to be hot hot HOT, with just about everything getting offers no matter what the problem may be.  That’s bad news for buyers but great news for Burbed readers.  Agents will put anything on the MLS figuring they can sell it!  Thanks very much to Burbed reader Petsmart Groomer for this find in the Civic Center area!  In fact, we’d like to thank Petsmart Groomer so much for so many quality submissions. With the official opening of the Spring Selling Season, this is going to be Petsmart Groomer WEEK.

120405-mcallister-bigroomLet’s review some of this listing copy, shall we?

in the heart of the City’s evolving cultural, arts & entertainment district:

The key word here is “evolving,” which means in the realtard’s wildest dreams, this building fronts onto Union Square or the Opera House, but in reality it’s much closer to the stripper bars.

This is an overly creative use of the “YEAR BUILT” field in MLS.  And by “overly creative” I actually mean “pants on fire.”

Really old building with high ceilings and even higher prices

You thought I was joking about the high ceilings?  They just mean it will cost you a fortune to heat or cool the place.

This is the neighborhood for urban outlooks.  Panhandlers, hookers, pimps, drunken bar hoppers, it’s all here!

If you can walk there safely at night, because the cabs won’t stop here.

If you have an internet connection, you have shopping all at your fingertips, but don’t let that rain on the Market Street Parade you’re facing in the wrong direction to see from this tiny studio.

    Ooh, I hope the Lego Apartments get made up in SF. Burbed field trip?

    RV living in SF! In fact, the Murphy bed is a waste of space. Just like an RV, they should have one of those convertible table/beds, and maybe even have a bed in a crow’s nest you need to climb a ladder to enter?

    Sketchy block, or sketchy-est?

    The thing is, I don’t think anyone lives in these things. It’s just sad.

    What is that first photo of? It looks like a prison – a motif not entirely aided by the stainless steel bitch sink in the bathroom.
