The Swiss bank UBS published its Global Real Estate Bubble Index recently, stating that San Francisco is the most overvalued real estate market in the US. Their analysis focused on the rise of home prices in San Francisco compared to the rise in median incomes. Their report stated that home prices have risen 65% since 2012 while the average income has risen only 10%.

San Francisco’s continued hot housing market reflects the incredibly strong full- employment economy that the Bay Area and the U.S. is experiencing.

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

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, ...
