In a famously pricey city, these are the places with the lowest median listing price

#1 Cathedral Hill →

  • Median listing price: $558,657
Named for the large churches clustered here, this neighborhood just north of the Western Addition is also packed with apartment and condo towers.

#2 Oceanview →

  • Median listing price: $837,029
Students like the low-ish rents and short walk to City College and SF State from these blocks. And a nearby BART stop is a real draw for commuters.

#3 Lower Nob Hill →

  • Median listing price: $857,885
Parking is scarce but transit is abundant in this densely populated neighborhood between Nob Hill and the Tenderloin.  

#4 Bayview →

  • Median listing price: $867,931
Since a streetcar line connected it to downtown, redevelopment has been a hot topic in the Bayview, where condos are going up and shops are opening.

#5 Silver Terrace →

  • Median listing price: $899,368
This neighbor of Bayview is filled with single-family homes, but its location at the junction of the 101 and 280 freeways gives it an urban vibe.

#6 Hunters Point →

  • Median listing price: $914,286
After decades of neglect, developers are eyeing Hunters Point with plans to transform its 500-acre shipyard-turned-Superfund site into waterfront condos.

#7 Diamond Heights →

  • Median listing price: $918,743
Perched above the forested ravine of Glen Canyon Park, this enclave of boxy homes and apartments feels remote but is just uphill from Noe Valley.  

#8 Crocker Amazon →

  • Median listing price: $924,049
Down on the border with Daly City, it has a Silicon Valley–friendly location and is known as a place where you can find a (relative) deal on a home.

#9 Visitacion Valley →

  • Median listing price: $929,857
It’s always had bay views and a huge city park. Now that it’s got a streetcar line too, industrial sites and housing projects are getting a do-over.

#10 Excelsior →

  • Median listing price: $962,489
Along a southern stretch of Mission Street between the 280 and 101 freeways, rows of 1950s homes claim John McLaren Park’s 300+ acres as their backyard.
