San Francisco: Prices Drop on Telegraph Hill

41 Castle St., San Francisco, CAFor millionaires it must always be a good time to enter the housing market. After all, they can still afford a home when prices are high, and now that they're low again, million-dollar bargains abound. Recent price drops in San Francisco's Telegraph Hill make the area worth looking at again.

I recently wrote about a stunning condo for sale in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood that had its price drop by 5 percent. Now I've found a single-family home in the same hilltop neighborhood that has dropped nearly 11 percent in price --- from $3,350,000 to $2,995,000.
The home at 41 Castle St. dropped in price April 8, which is good news for anyone looking for a home in this neighborhood famous for its views of the city and the landmark Coit Tower. A walking tour of Telegraph Hill will lead you to some great restaurants with spectacular views, a Gothic church and one of the best bookstores in San Francisco.
