Overview Map of General Median Sales Prices
by San Francisco Neighborhood, updated January 2018

The tables below report median sales prices, average home size and units sold, by property type and bedroom count for a wide variety of San Francisco neighborhoods, from Pacific Heights to Noe Valley, from the Sunset district to the Richmond district, from Russian Hill to South Beach. If you are interested in data for a neighborhood not listed, please contact us. The tables are in the following order: houses by bedroom count, condos by bedroom count, and 2 & 3-unit building sales. Within each table, the neighborhoods are in order of median sales price.

This analysis is based upon sales reported to San Francisco MLS over the 12-month period delineated on the charts. Median price statistics are generalities that are affected by a number of market factors - and sometimes fluctuate without great meaningfulness - so all numbers should be considered approximate. Median prices often disguise a huge range of values in the underlying individual sales.

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.

These statistics apply only to home sales with at least 1 car parking. Homes without parking typically sell at a significant discount. Below Market Rate (BMR) condos were excluded from the analysis.

As noted on the tables, the average size of homes vary widely by neighborhood. Besides affluence, the era and style of construction often play a large role in these size disparities. Some neighborhoods are well known for having "bonus," bedrooms and baths built without permit (often behind the garage). Such additions can add value, but being unpermitted are not reflected in square footage and $/sq.ft. figures.

Tips for San Francisco Homebuyers

Renting vs. Buying

The Median Sales Price is that price at which half the properties sold for more and half for less. It may be affected by "unusual" events or by changes in inventory and buying trends, as well as by changes in value. The median sale price for an area will often conceal a wide variety of sales prices in the underlying individual sales. All numbers should be considered approximate.

Square footage is based upon the home's interior living space and does not include garages, storage, unfinished attics and basements; rooms and apartments built without permit; decks, patios or yards. These figures are typically derived from appraisals or tax records, but can be unreliable, measured in different ways, or unreported altogether: thus consider square footage and $/sq.ft. figures to be very general approximations. Size and $/sq.ft. values were only calculated on listings that provided square footage figures. All things being equal, a house will have a higher dollar per square foot than a condo (because of land value), a condo's will be higher than a TIC (quality of title), and a TIC's higher than that of a multi-unit building (quality of use). All things being equal, a smaller home will have a higher $/sq.ft. than a larger one. (All things are rarely equal in SF real estate.)

Many aspects of value cannot be adequately reflected in general statistics: architecture, curb appeal, age, condition, views, amenities, outdoor space, so-called bonus rooms, parking, quality of location within the neighborhood, and so forth. Thus, how these statistics apply to any particular home is unknown without a specific comparative market analysis. Data is from sources deemed reliable, but may contain errors and is subject to revision.
