On the “Homes for Sale in San Francisco” front, here’s our report for this week, 8/28/16 – 9/3/16:
Carole Rodoni, one of our favorite real estate experts, summed things up nicely in a recent column when describing our local market. In the piece, she points out that you’re likely to hear lots of figures about real estate prices, but you need to keep in mind these are typically bundled numbers, and real estate is actually quite fragmented. Real estate isn’t only local, it’s hyperlocal, and it also differs by segment.
Right now, the entry level market is still very hot, the middle tier is steady with prices holding, and the high end of the market has experienced some adjustment, with prices declining a bit.
Is this the right time to buy? Absolutely, she answers, citing features that set San Francisco and the Bay Area apart – we’re a gateway to the Pacific Rim, home to Silicon Valley, renowned universities, cultural diversity, economic opportunity, and more. She adds that by 2040 it’s projected that there will be 2.1 million more people in the Bay Area creating 1.1 million more jobs.
While there will certainly continue to be some fragmentation, in general homes in this region, and in San Francisco, will remain in demand for the foreseeable future!
