Since mid-March, shelter-in-place ca used steep drops in activity across the board in what is typically the busiest selling season of the year. However, activity has been picking up since bottoming out in late March/early April, and will presumably continue to increase with the easing of both shelter-in-place and property-showing rules. So far, median house prices have seen no declines -in fact, the year has seen substantial year-over-year increases, though median condo prices have dropped. (A fair proportion of the sales behind April median sales prices still reflects offers accepted prior to shelter in place.) Interest rates hit a new historic low in the last week of April.

It is impossible to know how median and average value statistics apply to any particular home without a specific comparative market analysis. Many factors affect sales prices besides neighborhood/ bedroom count: quality of location within the neighborhood, condition, size, architecture, views, amenities, parking, outdoor space, etc.

These analyses were made in good faith with data from sources deemed reliable, but may contain errors and are subject to revision. It is not our intent to convince you of a particular position, but to attempt to provide straightforward data and analysis, so you can make your own informed decisions. Median and average statistics are enormous generalities: There are hundreds of different markets in San Francisco and the Bay Area, each with its own unique dynamics. Median prices and average dollar per square foot values can be and often are affected by other factors besides changes in fair market value. Longer term trends are much more meaningful than short-term.
