What San Francisco Homebuyers Purchased This Year


2013 is coming to an end, so let's take a look at what San Francisco homebuyers purchased this year. (Technically these numbers only report sales up until November 25. We are not time travelers.) The data has been pulled from the San Francisco MLS and prepared by Paragon Real Estate. Let's start with dollar per square foot. Per Paragon, "Dollar per square foot is based upon interior living space and does not include garages, attics, rooms built without permits, decks or patios." At $477 per square, the least expensive neighborhood by per square foot goes to homes in the Excelsior and Portola neighborhoods. It slowly moves up to $611 per square for Inner and Central Richmond houses, and peaks at $1,150 per square foot for South Beach luxury condos selling for $1.5M and above. South Beach condos selling for under $1M averaged $874 per square foot. - Sold homes in Pacific Heights this year averaged 5,366 square feet
- Sold this year: 2,652 condos, 2,383 single-family homes, 501 2-4-unit buildings, 319 TICs, 124 5+ unit buildings, 58 co-ops
- The highest mean sale price for a 2-bedroom condo with parking goes to the Marina, which has a mean of $1.225M. The least expensive is Potrero Hill at $675K
- The largest condo sale reported to the MLS was in the Four Seasons for $7.85M
- The highest reported dollar per square of any San Francisco home sale was in the Millennium: $2,554
- 35 penthouses reportedly sold
- Distressed property sales dropped 64% from 2012
- The 4 biggest house sales reported to the MLS were all on Jackson Street in Pacific or Presidio Heights, selling from $12.75M to $18M. Their average size was 9,750 square feet
