What are some ways to filter search results to only show 2 unit TIC for sale? Looking in sf.

Looking to buy 2 unit TIC for sale units with a friend in SF. I haven't found an easy way to filter those out in search results. Any help would be great.

Ehchkay,

If you would email me, I can set up the 2-unit search program you are requesting.  Also please indicate the neighborhoods that are most desirable to you and your TIC purchase partner.  Feel free to call with any questions.

Thanks for chiming all. I haven't been able to easily filter listings that are two unit TICs. The intention is to bypass condo conversion lottery.

I believe the reason Ehchkay is looking for 2-unit TIC's is that such buildings can possibly bypass the condo-conversion lottery in San Francisco.

Checking several that state "duplex" on the keywords filter sort, doing a "search" for "duplex" on the home details page, it appears the word is not on the page.  It is not clear what caused the result to be found if the keyword is not on the page.

It may be a "bug".

Looking at the filtered results summary, it claims 1 is "single family", 1 is "condo", and the rest are "multi-family".

The keyword search is only as good as the data the listing agents bother to provide in the description.  If the listing agents don't want people to find the properties, that is the listing agent's problem.  If the listing agents misrepresent the properties, that is also the listing agent's problem.

Clearly, one doesn't just do a search and then not examine and sort through the results.

I believe the question was how to do a filtered search on Zillow rather than how to contact a Real Estate agent, but I may be wrong.

And clearly, "tenants in Common" has more to do with how owners purchase and are recorded on the title than it has to do with whether it is a duplex, triplex, or two on a lot, or Single Family Residence with "back" house.

Yes, Pasadenan

The best setup would be a direct SF MLS search program to generate a list of all 2-unit properties and immediate notification the moment new listings hit the market.  Not all of the 106 properties seen on Zillow are 2-unit TIC's. Some are condos.

Here is a link for just 2-unit buildings:

If you need a more immediate response, it's best to contact a local realtor for a tailor-made search of your specific criteria.

Zillow typically only shows "ownership" properties, except for units listed for rent, so you may not find it on this site.

But you can try using the keywords filter, and putting "two unit" (in quotes) or something similar in the Keywords filter box.
