San Francisco Home Sales Data – March 2008

Another month has gone by. The San Francisco real estate market appears to be weathering the storm that the mortgage market is throwing at it.  There are definitely less qualified buyers than were out looking for homes as the same time last year, but homes are still selling, and the good ones are still selling quickly and with multiple offers.
The number of sales increased a good bit from February (which had increased from January). Median sales price rose for single family homes and condos, but TIC’s took a major hit in median sales price.  Maybe with fewer buyers out there for the lower end properties, would-be TIC buyers are taking advantage of the lack of competition and finding good deals on condos and small single family homes in the outlying areas of San Francisco.  That’s speculation, but I have had more buyers coming to me that just aren’t that into TIC’s these days.  In a nutshell, good deals can be found in certain sectors of the market.  Want to know where?  Contact me!
So here’s this month’s summary of home sales pulled directly from the MLS. Remember, these are all closed sales and not pending sales.
Check back monthly to get the latest facts and figures – and if you have any questions about these statistics, or the market in general, feel free to give me a holler! I’m always happy to talk “real estate!” 🙂
