Maps of Home Values in San Francisco and Bay Area
San Francisco House Values by Neighborhood Here are 2 mapped analyses of recent San Francisco house and condo sales by median sales price and average dollar per square foot, broken out by neighborhood; 1 map of median house prices for Marin, Napa & Sonoma; and 1 for the greater Bay Area. These maps give an interesting overview of prices and values in the different areas of the city and Bay Area.
We typically update these maps every 3 to 6 months (on a rotating basis) so that there is enough home sales data per specific neighborhood or city to generate meaningful statistics -- but even then they are all generalities, which often fluctuate for other reasons besides changes in value and should be considered approximate.
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 measured in different ways or simply unreliable. Dollar per square foot statistics can be affected by other factors besides changes in value, such as average home size: all things being equal, a smaller home will have a higher dollar per square foot value than a larger home. All median and average statistics are based on that relatively unique basket of homes that sell within the designated period and should be considered general approximations, and it is unknown how they apply to any specific property.
