The Definitive Guide to San Francisco Neighborhood Home Prices

We have tried to make this webpage an exhaustive guide to home prices within specific SF neighborhoods and districts. For buyers, it illustrates where you are most likely to find a home, whether house or condo of a particular bedroom count, in your price range. For sellers, it gives an overview of recent sales activity of homes comparable to your own. This report has 4 sections: 

1) First is the interactive map above which details overall (very general) house and condo median sales prices by neighborhood for sales occurring in the past 12 months. 2) The second part, starting below: Tables breaking down home sales by bedroom count, property type, median sales prices and average dollar per square foot values. 3) Charts illustrating in what neighborhoods you will you find the biggest selection of listings in your price range. 4) The last section, following the second neighborhood map, looks at specific districts in the city and breaks down the number of sales by price segment and bedroom count within each one - for example, if you want to buy a 3-bedroom house in the Noe Valley area for between $1.5m and $2m - how many sales are there? 

Median sales price is that price at which half the sales occurred for less and half for more. Average dollar per square foot reflects the livable interior space of a home and does not include garages, storage, rooms built without permit, decks or outdoor space - not all sales report square footage, and interior square footage can be measured in different ways. Both of these statistics are generalities that disguise a huge variety of values in the underlying individual sales.

SF Neighborhood Home Prices, January 2018 Update 

The charts below are based upon San Francisco home sales reported to MLS in 2017, breaking out the neighborhoods with, generally speaking, the most sales within given price points. Other neighborhoods not listed did sometimes have smaller numbers of sales within given price segments.

Where to Buy a HOUSE

The overall median HOUSE price in the city in 2017 was $1,420,000, so the under-million-dollar house is becoming increasingly rare, and found mostly in the southern border neighborhoods of the city. 

Buying Condos & Co-ops

The overall SF median condo price in 2017 was $1,150,000, and sales of studios, 1BR and 2BR units at price ranges under $2m occur in most areas of the city that have substantial condo markets. Obviously, you will get smaller units in the most expensive neighborhoods.
