SF Ranked Top City For Trick-or-Treating

1For the third consecutive year, San Francisco takes the prize as Zillow’s top US city for trick-or-treating. To help identify locations that could potentially dish out the most candy and present the least amount of safety and walking concerns, Zillow determines their rankings based on four categories of equal value: the Zillow Home Value Index, population density, Walk Score, and local crime data from Relocation Essentials.

Other California cities that land in the top 20 are San Jose (#4) and Los Angeles (#6) each moving up a spot from last year, as well as San Diego (#12).

Curious which part of town takes the crown? Zillow also includes in their rankings the top five neighborhoods per city. San Francisco’s may surprise you:
#5- Glen Park
#4- Presidio Heights
#3- Cow Hollow
#2- Sea Cliff
#1- Noe Valley

Zillow’s ranking is, of course, just one way of looking at it. We’ve gotten feedback that lists Cole Valley, St. Francis Wood, and West Portal as tried and true. We’d love to hear more – chime in with your pick!

2012 San Francisco Home Sales by Price Range & Neighborhood

January 2013

Overall median and average prices only give so much insight into the mix of homes sold in a particular area of the city, so these charts delineate the actual quantity of sales in specific price ranges within Realtor districts and neighborhoods around San Francisco. If you’re looking to buy, it will give you a better idea of the number of purchase options within your price range in the areas you’re considering. If you looking to sell, you’ll understand better where your home and its asking price would fall within the general curve of values in your neighborhood.

Please note that within a single Realtor district are often located multiple neighborhoods of widely different home values.

Weekly Charts

Weekly market activity charts for the 6 months ending 4/22/12 for San Francisco houses, condos and TICs:

Listings for Sale: At this time of year, inventory typically starts to grow. Instead it continues to decline, i.e., homes are selling more quickly than they are coming on market. We are at about half the number of active listings as at this time last year.

Percentage of Listings Accepting Offers: Comparing demand to supply, the SF market is hotter than it has been in many years.

Click to Enlarge

New Listings Coming on Market: Insufficient number of new listings to satisfy buyer demand. Hopefully, a spring surge in new listings will soon begin.

Median House Sales Price: Measuring median sales price by week is pretty iffy, since fluctuations are common without any great significance (even on a monthly basis), but for what it’s worth, the median sales price for SF houses has been climbing in recent weeks. We are certainly seeing upward pressure on home prices in most of the city’s neighborhoods right now.
