63% of San Francisco Homes Now Worth More Than 1 Million

No Comments »

San Francisco HomeIn all of San Francisco, according to McLaughlin’s study, more than 63 percent of homes (including condos and town houses) are valued at $1 million or more. That’s up from 39 percent in 2010.

The city’s housing crunch is a familiar story. We’ve known that lower- and middle-income families have struggled to stay in San Francisco. But things aren’t much better at the upper end, where even families making a solid six-figure income are finding that the market is running away from them.

Bernal Heights is just one of the neighborhoods seeing big changes. Some of the other neighborhoods seeing steep climbs — to the point where virtually every house is a $1 million home — include the Inner Sunset (31 percent to 96 percent) and Central Richmond (45 percent to 96 percent).

California Real Estate Spiraling Out of Reach of Average Buyer

No Comments »

San Francisco Real EstateFamilies who earn an average income can only afford a home in seven of 32 California counties, according to the California Association of Realtors. The report said someone earning the state’s median income of $60,244 can afford less than a third of California’s available homes, condos and town homes.

For Judy Cornick, a Sacramento retiree with some decent equity from her current home, it’s still a tight squeeze to get even a small place in downtown Sacramento.

“Everything I really want size-wise is probably a good, $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 out of my reach,” Cornick said as she checked out a home in Sacramento’s prestigious Land Park neighborhood. The 1,400-square foot, one bathroom, two bedroom home she’s looking at is a relative steal at just under $400,000.

California Home Sales At 9-Year High

No Comments »

San Francisco HomeSales of California homes remained robust in July, with the number of houses and condos sold hitting a nine-year high for the second month in a row, a research firm reported Wednesday.

CoreLogic Inc. reported an estimated 46,065 new and existing single-family homes sold in California in July. That’s up 14.4 percent from last July, and maintains strong sales recorded in June, indicating that the state may well be climbing out of last decade’s fiscal downturn.

The statewide median sale price increased 6.4 percent from last July to $415,000, the same as in June, and the highest for any month since November 2007, when the median price was also $415,000.

San Francisco Real Estate Market Has Gone Over the Top

No Comments »

San Francisco Real EstateIn San Francisco, a boom is always associated with its essential counterpart, the bust. They’re as typical to the city as sun and fog. And currently, the city is in one heck of a housing boom, but the national indices don’t quite do justice to how over-the-top mind-blowing crazy the situation has gotten.

For example, the S&P/Case-Shiller Home price index covers not just the city or county of San Francisco (identical) but includes four other Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, and San Mateo. There are more counties in the Bay Area, but they’re not included in the index. Two of the cities in these counties – Richmond and Oakland – have made the lists of the nation’s most dangerous cities, justified or not, and home prices in these cities and other cities too are much, much lower.

So in terms of home prices, the five-county Case-Shiller index for “San Francisco,” though showing a significant gain, waters down the craziness happening before our very eyes in the real San Francisco.
