Spotlight on Hot Sales in the City

The last week of September could be a clear indication that the real estate market is alive and well in San Francisco. That week's top three sales were for large, single-family residences, ranging from approximately 3,400 to 4,500 sq. ft. Two sold for well over the listing price.

Starting in Cow Hollow, the property at 1630 Greenwich Street was listed at $2,595,000 and sold for $2,965,000 after six days on the market, 14 percent over listing. Well done!

Moving on to St. Francis Wood, the home at 30 Santa Ana Avenue was listed and sold at $3,250,000 after just 17 days on the market.

Last, but certainly in no way least, 2201 Lyon Street in Pacific Heights was listed at $3,895,000 and sold for $5,250,000, a stunning 34 percent over listing.Google Partners with San Francisco to Provide Public Wi-Fi Locations

Google has offered $600,000 to the City of San Francisco to establish 31 public Wi-Fi locations throughout the City. Based on geographic and economic data, City officials have selected 31 hotspots, which include Dolores Park, Washington Square Park, Alamo Square Park, the historic Portsmouth Square in Chinatown and the Tenderloin Recreation Center.

Other cities have already benefited from Google's Wi-Fi venture: Boston's South Station, New York's Chelsea neighborhood and Google's home city of Mountain View.

Veronica Bell, Google's Senior Manager, Public Policy and Government Affairs, told the media that the free Wi-Fi service will be "a resource that the city and other local groups will be able to use in their efforts to bridge the digital divide and make their community stronger."

If all goes well through the City's approval process, installation could begin as early as December, with completion targeted for mid-2014.
