Median sales prices for San Francisco luxury homes

Pacific & Presidio Heights neighborhoods remain the City’s most expensive. These are the City’s most prestigious neighborhood, but also where you can find the really big houses and mansions, like 2610 Scott and 24 Presidio Terrace.

Many of the runners-up are very small markets, where the number of luxury house sales can average less than 1 or 2 per month. Russian Hill and Nob Hill also have fewer house sales because its housing stock is mostly smaller condos. The $2M+ homes that do sell in these neighborhoods can range from quirky and unique, like a cottage-style condo at 1332 Greenwich to a glamorous mid-century, like

1750 Taylor #1601

For those priced out of the “Mansion Market”, the greater St. Francis Wood-Forest Hill area offers comparably large and elegant homes, like 11 Yerba Buena. These homes are often on larger lots, at significantly lower dollar-per-square-foot prices. These buyers also often aim for the large, gracious, 3-5 bedroom Edwardians found in Inner/Central Richmond, like 136 3rd Avenue. If they can handle slightly smaller square footage, Noe/Eureka/Cole Valleys also offer some nice single family homes. Examples of recent closings in these neighborhoods are 286 Jersey and 4746 17th Street.
