Life has certainly changed in the last 11 months in San Francisco as it has almost everywhere. Ingenuity and creativity are necessary as we move forward and San Francisco is not short of those traits.For instance, take the Buena Vista, called the BV by those who love her and her long history here, the famous home of Irish Coffee here in The City. Usually full of people, shoulder to shoulder and not a spare inch to be had.Now, since restaurants and bars have been closed, it looks quite a bit differentSo---what do San Franciscans do when confronted with scenes like this one? We INNOVATE AND TAKE OUR IRISH COFFEE TO GO TO BE ENJOYED ELSEWHERE!

And these particular pets, Tanner and Jack, are delighted to visit whenever they can since it is only 1/2 mile from the door to a parking area at Lake Merced where their fun begins.The walk/jog or bike ride around the Lake Merced is about 4.5 miles of scenic joy, which these dogs relish.When its time to return home, a snooze in the warm sunshine on the deck is quite appealing.Looking for a spacious townhouse to enjoy with your pets, children or family, take a look at 109 Summit Way, then give your agent a call to make it your own.

While median pricing for both single family homes and condos fell in October, there were some glimmers of light in the month's data. For one, fewer new listings came on-market  and there were fewer active listings at the end of the month compared to September 2020. This could help stabilize the market a bit, particularly the condo market, as existing inventory sells through. Months supply of inventory also decreased compared to last month, though continues well above what we've become used to here in San Francisco.These numbers, though, are still up compared to October 2019. That's because like everything else 2020, the typical real estate seasons were thrown for a loop. The March shutdown threw the Spring season, typically the busiest, out the window. As a result, the summer saw the li...

In September the median sales price for single family homes was up again year-over-year as well as compared to August, while the condo/ loft market continued to see decreases over the same periods. Condo pricing has softened due to large inventory on the market as discussed in last month's update. The condo market has been slowly eroding for about the last year, but COVID seems to have sped up the process.  I also included 3rd quarter stats here. Read them all below. Median Price September:Single family home prices rose 9.5% year-over-year, while condos and lofts decreased 8.9%. As you can see in the 2nd chart, it's the $2 million-plus segment of the condo market that took the greatest hit in September.3rd Quarter Median Price:The third quarter mirrored what we saw for median prices in ...

Single family home prices nudged up a bit year-over-year while condo and loft prices remained flat in August. New listings for single family homes decreased compared to last year and last month, but they also saw an increase in active listings by the end of the month. Meanwhile condos and lofts increased for both. As more inventory comes on the market more homes are selling closer to their asking price and fewer are selling for gang-busters over their list price. But the "big story" I'm asked a lot about is the condo market. August marked the third month in a row that condos and lofts saw 6 or more months of inventory. Six months is typically a sign that we're venturing out of a seller's market and into a more balanced-to-buyer's market. What does this mean? If you're a buyer it means y...

 Median prices were up year-over-year in July, showing San Francisco real estate continues to be a healthy market albeit not has "gangbusters" as we've seen in years past. After years of weak inventory we're seeing an influx of new listings particularly in the condo market, with some neighborhoods seeing buyers market levels of inventory available. Currently it's a mixed market with both prices and inventory rising, and single family homes seeing greater demand than condos. See all the stats below. Median Sales Price:Home sales overall rose in July compared to the same month last year. The median sales price for a single family home was $1,660,000, up 5% compared to last year but down from June's median sales price high of over $1.8 million. Condo and loft prices also rose year-over-yea...

June statistics show that after a so-so May San Francisco real estate revived a bit, particularly with single family homes which hit a new median price high. Condos and lofts prices also lifted compared to May, but are still down compared to last year. Dirt-cheap interest rates continue to drive buyer demand, and create an excellent opportunity for buyers who are ready and able to jump into the market. Interest rates have great impact on buying power, the amount of a loan buyers can qualify for.Overall, inventory has increased with months supply of inventory reaching it's highest levels since 2011. That said, we are still in "sellers market" territory, especially for single family homes. Median Sales Price:The median sales price for a single family home in San Francisco rose to over $1....
