San Francisco Housing Market Trends - May 2018 Featured

Written by 

May 2018 housing stats report was recently released by SF Association of Realtors.  It shows the following local real estate trend

  • Median Sales Price (“MSP”) of single family homes reached $1.62M, a +10% increase compared to May 2017.  MSP for Condo/TIC/Coop properties was equal to $1.265M, a +8% increase v. the same time last year 
  • 84% of single family homes sold above their list price and those that fell into this category received 120% of their asking price.  As a way of comparison, 69% of Condo/TIC/Coop properties sold above their asking price, receiving 109% of their list price.  

Of note from the Report: 

ü  Prospective home buyers should expect a competitive housing market for the next several months – with payrolls trending upward and unemployment trending downward in an extensive string of positive economic news, demand remains quite strong

ü  Gradually rising mortgage rates often infuse urgency to get into a new home before it costs more later – buyers need to remain watchful of news listings and make offers quickly

ü  Strong Seller’s market situation has proven to be remarkably sustainable likely due to stronger fundamentals in home loan approvals compared to a decade ago

 For more details, please download the enclosed copy of the report.   

With best wishes,
