San Francisco RE Market Update - Oct 2017



Single family home values have posted a fourth straight month of double digit year-over-year gains. Purchasers continue to pay an average of 17% over list price, with purchasers in the middle tier ($1.1MM - $1.6MM) paying an average of 22% over list price. At least 10 homes last month sold for over 40% of the list price, with most located in the Parkside and Sunset neighborhoods. However, the overall number of sales last month came in 20% lower than the month before. This is likely due to a continued dearth of inventory, with the current supply coming in at approximately one month.

Condominium values have continued their course of improvement this year, posting a 7% year-over-year gain. This time last year, condominium values were showing a 5% decline year-over-year. Resale condominium inventory currently stands at about 2 months, in addition to approximately 700 new condominiums in actively selling developments. New condominium supply is currently at a 2-year low, and supply projections show a downward trajectory for the foreseeable future. This should allow for continued improvement in the condominium market, especially in neighborhoods with limited new supply.
