House & Condo Price Trends for SF Neighborhoods or Districts
Below are a series of charts that look at San Francisco neighborhood and Realtor district home prices and appreciation trends from a variety of angles. The statistics used are typically median sales price and/or average dollar per square foot value, and charts may pertain to houses and/or condos in general, or homes of specific bedroom counts.

At the bottom of this report is another map of the 10 Realtor districts and their component neighborhoods. There are 70-odd neighborhoods in San Francisco, and the charts do not include every single one. (Some have very few sales.) We are happy to provide information on any not included below.

Note: Neighborhoods with relatively few sales in a given year, and especially expensive neighborhoods with few sales, sometimes see dramatic fluctuations in value statistics that don’t have much to do with changes in fair market value: It is simply that the basket of sales that occurred was significantly different from the previous year. As always, longer-term trends are more meaningful than short-term fluctuations.

Some Realtor districts contain neighborhoods that are relatively homogeneous in general home values, such as districts 5 and 7, and others contain neighborhoods of wildly different values, such as district 8 which, for example, includes both Russian Hill and the Tenderloin.

As always, the quality of the specific location and the range of amenities of the property; its curb appeal, condition, size and graciousness; and the existence and quality of parking, views and outside space can all significantly impact home values. Median sales prices will usually change if the area or period being measured is changed, even a little bit. Median sales prices are different than average sales prices. Median and average sales prices and average dollar per square foot values often fluctuate for reasons other than changes in fair market value.

These analyses were made in good faith with data from sources deemed reliable, but they may contain errors and are subject to revision. Statistics are gross generalities and how they apply to any specific property is unknown without a tailored comparative market analysis. All numbers should be considered approximate.
