For the 5-County San Francisco Metro Statistical Area, all price segments showed increases, though the lowest price tier jumped the most – 4% — reflecting the rapid decline in distressed property sales. Overall, for all price segments, the jump over June was about 2.3%, which translates into an increase from 12 months ago of approximately 25%.
