Baltimore Vs. San Francisco, the Real Estate Super Bowl

Congratulations 49ers. I love hockey and I’m so glad we’ve made it to the Stanley Cup. Or, er, the Super Bowl. Yeah, that’s it. Don’t get me wrong – I absolutely love playing sports. But even overly-muscled men in skin-tight pants can’t keep my attention when it comes to watching sports. But since our football team has made it to the championship game and completely messed up this Sunday’s open house schedule, let’s take a moment to compare Baltimore real estate (because we’re playing the Ravens, and they’re from there… GO me!) and San Francisco real estate:

High End Home:

Baltimore offers up 622 Ponte Villas N, listed by Karen Hubble Bisbee, a waterfront double townhome with 6 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and over 9,000 square feet of living space.
Asking price: $8,500,000.

Looking for something in San Francisco that has over 9,000 square feet of living space? Then might I suggest 3800 Washington St. in Presidio Heights listed by Steven Mavromihalis of Pacific Union. 3800 Washington offers 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and crushes the competition with more than 17,000 square feet of living space. On almost an acre of land. In Presidio Heights. This one is ready for your dreams, just be sure to bring additional cash to turn those dreams into reality!
Asking price: $25,000,000. Bonus: Comes with two additional lotsĀ - 3810 Washington (2,869 square foot guest house) and 125 Maple (empty lot).
