June’s median sales price for single family in San Francisco backed off a bit from its all-time high in May, dropping from $1,502,675 to $1,465,989. At the same time, single family home inventory was at the lowest level, 1.6 months, for June in 10 years. This is largely due to the fact that the number of new listings on the market in 2017 is down 8.8% from 2016 while the number of sales is up 1.3%.

The incredibly tight supply coupled with strong demand pushed overbids up as well, to 115%, the ...

San Francisco’s continued hot housing market reflects the incredibly strong full- employment economy that the Bay Area and the U.S. is experiencing. Not only is unemployment in San Francisco historically low (3.3%), but also the number of employees who are involuntarily part-time is falling and older workers are remaining in the work force longer.

The impact of all of this very healthy jobs data is twofold: continued strong demand for our high-priced San Francisco housing; and fewer ...

Looking at San Francisco’s March sales data, we continue to see median sales prices and percent of list price received that are slightly lower than 2016’s. Inventory remains exceptionally low and it continues to be a sellers market.

The San Francisco economy remains very robust, but more mixed, as evidenced by a cooling in the commercial real estate leasing market, where rents dipped in 2016 and the sub-leasing market was very strong with a number of companies reducing their footprint. Also, ...

Following the incredibly strong Snap IPO, Mulesoft, a ...

SHORT SALES PROS AND CONS FOR BUYERS AND SELLERS

Short sales, despite their name, are anything but short. They are a complex, and finicky process, and it’s always best that you work with a Realtor with considerable experience conducting short sales in particular, to avoid having the deal fall through. The name uses “short” in the same sense as “getting short changed” or “coming up short” because, in a short sale, the property is sold for less than the remaining mortgage amount, effectively at ...
