San Francisco Real Estate Market Report September 2019

September 10, 2019

Once again, San Francisco’s median sold price for condo/loft/TIC’s has hit a new high – $1,270,000. However, sold price per square foot was down slightly to $1,161.

Meanwhile, single family home prices dropped slightly from July, showing fairly typical seasonality. Year-on-year, they are still up a fraction, 0.7%.

The number of new listings of both single family homes and condo/loft/TIC’s was significantly lower than last year’s. With strong buyer demand, this is resulting in the large majority of properties continuing to sell above their list price – 82% of single family homes and 66% of condo/loft/TIC’s.

With interest rates dropping well below 4%, and a lower supply of new listings, purchasing will remain very competitive until something shifts in the economy to lower buyers’ willingness to buy.

Not surprisingly, properties continue to fly off the market, with just 14 and 15 days on market, respectively, for single family homes and condo/loft/TIC’s.
