Quarter 4 2017 San Francisco Market Report

Quarter 4 2017 San Francisco Market Report

Fourth-quarter home sales activity in San Francisco picked up and condominium sales outperformed 2016’s fourth quarter and throughout 2017, especially for units priced between $2 million and $3 million. Strong buyer demand in the resale condominium market produced solid appreciation, and new condominium prices again likewise saw some upward momentum. Fewer new and existing resale condominiums were available in the fourth quarter of 2017 than in the last quarter of 2016. Buyer sentiment remained strong, and home shoppers faced stiffer competition than during the same period last year, pushing median property prices up solidly.

For single family homes, Q4 activity also increased, bringing sales to a level 5% higher than last year’s fourth quarter. Overall 2017 activity was 2% above 2016. Renewed buyer enthusiasm was particularly notable in October and November across all price ranges (with the typical seasonal slowdown in December). As with condo inventory, the same dismal for-sale inventory levels that characterized most of 2017 persisted — especially for affordable homes.

Looking Forward: Strong housing fundamentals and the Bay Area’s economic growth will continue to feed buyer demand. Early year’s homebuyer traffic reports suggest that the first quarter will carry over renewed momentum in San Francisco housing markets despite some trepidation over the impacts of the tax reform.
