San Francisco Home Sales, March-May 2013
Below are samples of recent city home sales sorted by price point.
The list is not comprehensive and the sales are not necessarily
representative of typical neighborhood
values. In real estate, the devil is always in the details, and the
short descriptions below cannot convey the many objective and subjective
criteria that make up value. Still, they give an idea of what one can
(or, at least could in recent months) purchase in San Francisco.
As seen below, a large percentage of properties has been selling well
over asking price: for example, in April, 90% of closed SF home
listings sold, without going through any price reductions, at an average
sales price 7.5% above list price. A red-hot market.
BR=bedroom, BA=bath, DOM=days on market, LP=list price, sq.ft.=square
foot/feet, HOA=homeowner’s association, pkg=parking space(s). Room counts
do not include bathrooms, garages, storage rooms or rooms built without
permit (bonus rooms): a 2 BR/2 BA home with a formal dining room, a
living room and a kitchen would be considered 5 rooms. With a combined living-dining room: 4 rooms. A family room or office would count as an additional room.
