While May’s single family homes market in San Francisco was more of the same so far in 2018: fewer new listings and sales, and rising interest rates and sold prices, it marked the third straight month of a lower median sold price. And yet the median price is still up 9.8% compared to May, 2017.
The number of new listings year-to-date is the lowest in three years while the number of sales is the highest in three years. So, to no one’s surprise, inventory is incredibly low, the lowest level since January, 2016.
The sold price per square foot reached a new all-time high for both single family homes, $1,009, and condo/loft/TIC’s, $1,141.
Condo/loft/TIC prices have gone up each of the past four months and have reached the highest point ever, $1,265,000.
