As most of you know, the San Francisco Association of Realtors has divided the city up into 10 market areas. Curious to find out what’s been transpiring on a district by district basis here in ’09, we decided to run a little analysis. Our goal? To take a look at the year over year performance of each district, using median sales price as our yardstick. Here’s what we did:
- Find the median sales price in each district from January 1, 2008 through June 1, 2008. Record it.
- Find the median sales price in each district from January 1, 2009 through June 1, 2009. Record it.
- Calculate the year over year change for each district.
- Rank the 10 districts based on performance over this period.
*Please note: You’ll need to familiarize yourself with THIS map in order to understand the MLS districts. All sales come from the MLS. These do not include private transactions or sales taking place at new developments. Property types included in the analysis include single family homes, condos, TIC’s, lofts, and stock cooperatives.
