Bay Area County Markets Survey

The data herein is from a wide variety of third party sources deemed reliable - much of it from national, state and local government data sources - but it may contain errors, and is subject to revision. When the term San Francisco Metro Area is used, it signifies that the data includes multiple Bay Area counties, however different organizations sometimes vary in which counties they include in that description. If different sources disagreed, we chose the data we thought most reasonable. Different analyses often pertain to somewhat different time periods. All data should be considered approximate or good-faith estimates.
