The Real Estate Update

Zephyr Real Estate  

While 2017 started slowly, San Francisco has shown us, once again, that Real Estate here is unlike Real Estate anywhere else. March and May have seen a healthy rebound from the year’s slow start. For both condos and single-family homes, the number of listings is at a three year low for May, which has increased median selling prices. In fact, in May, single-family homes hit a new high with a median price of $1,501,675; Condos also reached a new peak of $1,200,000. For the first time in the last three years, the number of pending sales exceeds that of new listings. 2017 is shaping up to be the year of high demand and low supply.

In order to produce reliable sales statistics, we need to examine the San Francisco market as two distinct components: Condos and Single-Family homes. Buyers and sellers should review the information that is most relevant to their specific situation.

Condos vs. Single-family Homes

Early in the year, several publications were predicting a slow-down in condo sales and prices. Based on the abundance of condos hitting the market and the decrease of pending sales, the forecast of an oversaturated market seemed reasonable. This has not been the case. Pending sales of condos are similar to those of the last three years. However, the ratio of sale price to list price has slipped to 102.7%.

Single-Family Homes:
The ratio of sale price to list price is one of the major differences between the condo market and the single-family market. The ratio for single-family homes in May was 114.7%. Due to intense demand and limited supply, single-family homes are instigating more competitive offers from buyers.
