Here are 3 mapped analyses of recent SF home sales by median sales price and average dollar per square foot. Even quarterly statistics can fluctuate within neighborhoods without great significance, because in every quarter a different basket of relatively unique properties sell. However, these maps still give an interesting overview of prices and values in the different areas of the city.

Under the maps, you will find a sampling of specific 2012 San Francisco home sales.

Below is a sampling of specific 2012 San Francisco home sales closing before April 30. The short descriptions can only give a very general sense of the location, emotional appeal, quality, condition and amenities of each property, and the sales listed are not necessarily representative of typical values for the neighborhood and property type.

As always with real estate, the devil is in the details.

BR = bedrooms, BA = baths, days on market = the days between going on market and being designated “pending sale, contingencies removed”. Homes that sold at or over asking price will typically have accepted offers within 7 to 14 days of going on market (commonly after receiving multiple offers), even if it may have taken additional weeks to remove contingencies of sale and be designated “pending”.

Median price is that price at which half the sales occurred for more and half for less. It may be and often is affected by other factors besides changes in value, such as changes in buying patterns or available inventory.

Square footage is based on “livable space”, which may be measured in different ways, but should not include decks, patios, yards, garages, unfinished basements and attics, or rooms built without permit (“bonus rooms” and “in-law apartments”). Square footage figures are often unreported or unreliable. All median and average statistics should be considered approximations, and it is unknown how they apply to any specific property.
