On the “Homes for Sale in San Francisco” front, here’s our report for this week, 5/29/16 – 6/4/16:
CoreLogic real estate reports are often quoted in the media, and it sometimes creates some confusion. The organization’s figures are for the San Francisco Bay Area as a whole, but the reports are sometimes misconstrued to be focused solely on the City. Lag times can also be problematic and misleading. What happened in April may or may not be what’s happening today.
In any event, CoreLogic’s latest report says that the median price for homes in the Bay Area rose 4.1% in April – the 49th consecutive month that the median price has risen on a year-over-year basis.
However, it might be worth noting that, according to Bloomberg.com, Silicon Valley in the South Bay is seeing a pullback by the wealthiest homebuyers after a four-year real estate boom marked by bidding wars and multimillion-dollar prices. Stock-market volatility, a drop in foreign investors and concerns about a technology-industry slowdown are cooling demand at the high end according to the Bloomberg report.
