What’s Up With Current SF MLS Listings?

How about a snapshot view of SF’s listings on the MLS presented in one easy-to-read chart? Take a look below. It’s an interesting perspective hot from the records of  June 27, 2016.

Here’s my take on these numbers.

Districts 3 and 4 are growing dense with single families, which explains why there is a higher volume of house inventory there.

District 5 is where you find the largest concentration of 2-4 unit buildings, with the Potrero, Mission, Bernal and Dogpatch neighborhoods coming in under District 5 for most 2-4 unit listings.

Notice how the Soma, South Beach, Yerba Buena Districts have no single-family homes. These neighborhoods are dominated by high-rise construction and mid- rise loft buildings. It is also where many of our new home developments are located. These new high-rise buildings typically do not post their inventory in the MLS. If they do post inventory, the volume of listings available in those neighborhoods would show much, much higher on this chart.
