Belvedere Lagoon’s Failing Bulkheads

Officials in charge of maintaining the Belvedere Lagoon are pushing homeowners to bulk up their waterside retaining walls to prevent soil erosion and collapse — a problem that could reduce the lagoon’s capacity and lead to flooding during storms.

The Belvedere Lagoon Property Owners’ Association said about 42 percent of lagoon residents either don’t have bulkheads or have ones needing replacement, a figure that jumps to 56 percent when including bulkheads in poor condition.

The association is working with the city to require homeowners who do certain construction projects check to make sure they have bulkheads capable of bearing the load on the lot.

Additionally, it is looking to streamline the permitting process so residents who want to replace a deteriorating bulkhead can do so quickly.

Another Great Recommendation

“I’ve worked with Phillipa Criswell on several occasions and have always found her to be very responsive and tuned in to what my wishes were. Even though I chose to live in an area outside Phillipa’s range of expertise, I did want to continue to work with her. She made every effort possible to make up for lack of knowledge of the area. I would certainly recommend Phillipa Criswell – she’s dedicated to her profession and very detail oriented.”

Comparing Belvedere Real Estate 2017 versus 2016

Comparing the 2017 real estate market in Belvedere with the 2016 market not much has changed. 29 homes sold (including 2 off market properties) in 2017.

The highest priced home at 345 Golden Gate Avenue sold for $14,460,000 at 88% of the latest list price . The home had been on the market in previous years for a list price of $20,500,000. The least expensive home in Belvedere that sold in 2017 was a bank owned home at 288 Bayview Avenue, selling price was $1,600,500. It was a major fixer upper or tear down and the original list price was $2,000,000.

Other good signs for the Belvedere market is  the average sold price for a home is up 22.5%  to $4,388,000 from the 2016 average sold price of $3,541,000. The median sold price of those listed in the multiple listing service was $3,200,000. Price per square foot has increased by 11.3% to $1347 per square foot.

I believe the real estate market in Belvedere in 2018 will be much the same as it was in 2017, nice and steady.
