Four Charts About San Francisco Luxury Home Sales

The second quarter of 2018 saw the highest quarterly number of SF homes selling for $2 million and above –  probably because quality family homes in good neighborhoods easily sell in the $2-2.5M category.

If we limit our view to higher-priced sales of $3m+, Q2 2018 is just a handful of transactions ahead of the Q2 2017 with a total of 97.

This next chart works with homes of $3M and above.  For the last few years, luxury house  closings have peaked in October, reflecting a busy September buying season.
