Be a San Francisco media giant!

Let’s finish out the week with another find in San Francisco. Once those Facebookers get their hands on all that IPO money, lots and land there are going to be made out of unobtainium.  Thanks very much to Burbed reader Petsmart Groomer for this SoMa spot, ready for your serendipity.

1376 Harrison St
San Francisco, CA 94103


SQ. FT.: –
LOT SIZE: 2,374 Sq. Ft.
PROPERTY TYPE: Lots & Acreage
COMMUNITY: South of Market
COUNTY: San Francisco
MLS#: 392692
SOURCE: San Francisco MLS
STATUS: Active
ON REDFIN: 126 days

Billboard on Site


This urban homestead, or Garage 4.0, depending on what use you feel is best, ready for you to build upon.  But there’s so much more than a generous half of a tenth of an acre lot.  There’s also a steady stream of hard liquor advertising dollars, too.

Well, the billboard seems attached to the building next door, but we didn’t say the advertising payments would be going to you.  The agent just notes there is a “Billboard on Site”. 

The photo also reveals that you’re close to transit.  Real close.  So let’s get a better picture of the lot, courtesy of Google Streetview.


Billboard still on site.  Facebook’s better watch out for you!

    Sorry about the late post, everyone. And my thanks to burbed for some great columns while I was too sick to use a computer. I hope burbed posts more here.

  2. nomadic Says:

    That’s okay, madhaus. Burbed is still the worst sysadmin ever. 😉

    We are setting a deadline for ourselves to get a place this year.
    Rent increase is driving us crazy, so we have to bite the bullet. Market condition can only get worse for buyers.

  4. Sock Puppet Central Booking Says:

    Every one of the Burbed classic sock puppets will appear over the next few days. Catch every act in the tour!

    Sorry, only Palo Alto home owners may attend. Bring property tax bill for admission. The rest of you renters and also rans are priced out forever.

  5. AstroWallaby Says:

    Does Sock Puppet Central Booking operate out of the Muni bus maintenance lot that’s down the street from this place? There also appears to be a lot of… “entertainment”, available in this neighborhood as well; if you’re a sock puppet that likes to live on the wild side and have things other than *feet* stuffed inside you this is probably the perfect place to call home. (Unless it turns out that the “Stud Bar” is actually a Brony hangout instead of what it sounds like. But hey, that’s good too right?)

    For the going price of 1.4 Notalotamonies maybe if you sweet talk the Realtor they’ll throw in a nice shoebox with some strategically placed holes for you to live in while you erect the Barbie Dream Mansion and otherwise landscape the rest of your palatial estate. Make Sifl and Olly proud, and say hi to Chester and Precious Roy for me!

    “Market condition can only get worse for buyers.”

    Too funny. As if market conditions could, much less would, ever get worse for a buyer.

  7. Tom Stone Says:

    I looked at a 100 year old restored farmhouse with outbuildings on 2.5 acres today an hour north of this gorgeous lot. The asking price was the same. Location, Location, Location.

  8. SV Shopper Says:

    What’s a sock puppet?

    SV Shopper is too cute.

    Can someone find a home for this ultra-super-cute guy, before his big-on-education wife abandons him? Please, have some empathy.

  10. nomadic Says:

    Here ya go:

    You don’t get out (of the drawer) much, do you?

  11. Faux Estater Says:

    nomadic, if he was interested to know, rather than typing it on burbed, he would have typed that question in the text box of
    That’s not the whole point of him asking the question here, on burbed. He is full of adolescent intelligence (or “smartness” if you call it). It’s like a kid stealing a toy. And when the kid is interrogated, he asks “What is toy?”
    It does not require second guessing on who stole the toy.

  12. Real Estater Says:

    Let’s not be too harsh. The mature and intelligent guy above is unable to afford a house. What difference does it make? At least one guy is trying, while the other guy is always in full denial (“I’m not even looking”).

  13. Real Estater Says:

    >>Please, have some empathy.

    Does the mature, fully grown guy know the difference between empathy and sympathy?

  14. Michael Boltonestater Says:

    “Please, have some empathy” – I prefer apathy (unless I’m playing Scrabble®).

  15. Real Estater Says:

    I have to say the most adolescent conversation here is to talk about sock puppets. In this day of IP addresses, why is there even an argument? The old lady here should have access, even though she is the worst server administrator in the world.

  16. Real Estater Says:


    He could very well mean that. He can barely spell.

  17. Faux Estater Says:

    He could very well mean that. He can barely spell.

    Don’t be two peeky. I went two publik skool.

  18. Faux Estater Says:

    At least one guy is trying,

    Who is trying? Sock puppet?

  19. Real Estater Says:

    That’s right. The socket puppet being you. Look at all the handles you have. Not hard to imagine what you’re up to.

  20. Faux Estater Says:

    I am your brother Real Estater. Can’t recognize me?

  21. madhaus Says:

    Wait are you saying I’m a sockpuppet of Burbed’s?

  22. Petsmart groomer Says:

    Real Estater and Faux Estater, this one is for you:

  23. Real Estater Says:

    Save it, Petsmart. If you can’t see that the Pralay guy is posing in various guises pretending to be me, and then have the guts to start this “socket” fight, I don’t really know what to say.

  24. Real Estater Says:

    Even the TV avatar he’s using is copied from me. Need I say more?

  25. The Gilroy Alex Says:

    Haha Excretor’s back!

    Tell us about prime opportunities in Sunnyvale…

  26. Faux Estater Says:

    Even the TV avatar he’s using is copied from me.

    Call it adolescent entitlement, unless he himself did not copy from somewhere else.
