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.

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.
