Which San Francisco Neighborhood Can You Afford?


If you want a single-family home in San Francisco, your budget more than anything else is going to determine where you can buy. You may adore the views from Pacific Heights, but without several million to play with, you’re unlikely to be able to afford a home there, even a modestly sized 2 bed, 1 bath.

Condos and tenancy-in-common (TIC) units are different: with these, buyers have options in many neighborhoods, with price more determined by size, style and amenities than by street address alone. Plus, new business concerns and luxury condo developments in places formerly considered “less attractive” to buyers have changed the demand and prices therein.

Paragon Real Estate has created price point charts for San Francisco single-family home sales reported to the MLS in the 12 months between March 1, 2013 and February 28, 2014.
