What's Not To Love

This community boasts its fantastic location and historic homes, but this means that they are aged. Since they are already quite expensive, it would be a hassle to spend more money on future renovations and maintenance. Some buyers find this off-putting because instead of saving money by purchasing their homes, they would have to spend even more to keep the homes livable. If you do not want any additional hassle, you might want to look at other San Francisco communities.
