Median sales price is that price at which half the sales occurred for less and half for more. Average dollar per square foot reflects the livable interior space of a home and does not include garages, storage, rooms built without permit, decks or outdoor space – not all sales report square footage, and interior square footage can be measured in different ways. Both of these statistics are generalities that disguise a huge variety of values in the underlying individual sales.

Home Sales & Prices within SF Districts/Neighborhoods
These charts below give much more detail than a single median sales price for, say, a 3-bedroom house in the Sunset District. If you already know the neighborhoods or areas of San Francisco you wish to concentrate on in your home search, these breakdowns will give you a better idea of what you will be able to find at different price points within each one. The following are generally by Realtor district. Sometimes, there is a wide variation of prices within a single district.
As always, the quality of the specific location and the range of amenities of the property; its curb appeal, condition, size and graciousness; and the existence and quality of parking, views and outside space can all significantly impact unit values.
These analyses were made in good faith with data from sources deemed reliable, but they may contain errors and are subject to revision. Statistics are generalities and how they apply to any specific property is unknown without a tailored comparative market analysis. Sales statistics of one month generally reflect offers negotiated 4 – 6 weeks earlier. Median sales prices often change with even the smallest change in the period of time or parameters of the analysis. All numbers should be considered approximate.
