If you are preparing a home for sale, have you ever wondered why some homes sell at
higher prices than others? The answer lies in pricing and emotional appeal.
I was at a statewide real estate conference in January and all of the talk was about the
lack of inventory.
Single-family home prices in the Richmond District rose for the sixth year in a row, with
median prices appreciating by 2.8 percent in 2017, a 100 percent increase from the
market low in 2011.
My prediction for 2018 is that we will have a decent real estate market but not as strong
as the last five years. It will continue to be a seller’s market with a shortage of good
inventory and a leveling out in prices.

These are laws that have been passed but most people do not know about
them because they are not well publicized and only apply in certain situations. But, if
you fall into one of these categories, you can save yourself a lot of money!
Now that people are back from their vacations and the weather is getting better,
homeowners are putting their properties on the market. Buyers are circling, so we
should see a strong fall market.
We in San Francisco have been in a housing crisis for a few years now. In fact, most
people surveyed recently say this is the top problem facing the City at this moment.
Since the Lucky Penny restaurant has cashed in for good, the SF Planning Commission
will consider an 80-foot-tall, eight-story mixed-use building for the intersection of
Geary Boulevard and Masonic Avenue.
I examined the single-family home markets in the Richmond and Sunset districts and compared them
against the data in San Francisco as a whole.
