Evan Williams got a lesson in the value of his company’s service on Thursday. Despite having listed his apartment with the real estate powers that be, it wasn’t until the Twitter CEO pushed out 27 characters that people cared: “Buy my lot…it’s a steal!” Of course, if you don’t like the décor, keep in mind that you’re in good company. Williams tweets, “Also, it looked better when @sara [i.e., Sara Morishige Williams, Evan’s wife] decorated.”
Williams and his wife are trying to move their San Francisco loft, which has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, for $1,498,000. If it moves at the asking price (chortle), the couple will sustain a mere $2,000 loss – not bad for this market. The home is located in the concrete (and historic … thus the extra zeroes) Heublein Building. At 1,792 square feet, it sounds palatial to me, though non-city-dwellers will likely disagree.
Hidden, of course, are the perks that come with this deal. Because some of the furniture doesn’t match the “feel” of the new digs, says Eric Turner of McGuire Real Estate, the right buyer could pick up a bonus. Even the couch is – so to speak – on the table. And, for your inner nerd, the loft has remote controlled blinds. The pragmatic will appreciate the two side-by-side parking spaces.
It isn’t the absence of a gym and other amenities that is driving the Williams family from its San Francisco abode. Now that they have a kid, they felt it was time to upsize to a four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Noe Valley.
