Posted On August 31st, 2015 by Cynthia Cummins | No Comments

Q: Is this a good time to buy a home in the Bay Area? A: Now is a perfect time to buy a home in the Bay Area. At least in San Francisco! You might say, “Well, Cynthia, of course that’s your answer because you’re a San Francisco real estate agent and, according to San Francisco real estate agents, NOW is always the best time to buy.” True. That’s because, as a longtime, full-time REALTOR®, I’ve witnessed the market’s reliability …

Middle Polk & Exploring Micro Neighborhoods » Marina Times

Posted On August 11th, 2015 by Carole Isaacs | No Comments

In June 2014 I wrote “Techies give birth to micro neighborhoods,” which talked about the Mastro, Baja Noe, and the Quad. Micro neighborhoods are not limited to the southern part of the city. While walking down Polk Street one day in June, new banners on the light poles caught my eye: “Welcome to Middle Polk, a village in the city.” On a street I walk down every day, a micro neighborhood had sprung up seemingly overnight. Working with the city,…

President Letter: Bay Area Sales Prices & Volume Soar in Strongest Quarter on Record | McGuire Q2 2015

Posted On July 27th, 2015 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

An inventory-depleted first quarter gave way to both sellers and buyers re-entering the market en masse, leading to the most dominant sales quarter in Bay Area real estate history. While this included records of $10.319 billion in total sales and the average home garnering $991,076, perhaps the most reassuring fact was that sales volume rebounded to one of its highest levels in years. The sales volume swing—spurred in large part by first quarter buyer fatigue wearing off, a booming local…

Posted On July 27th, 2015 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

With both average sales prices and sales volume at towering heights, Q2 2015 marked the strongest quarter in the (recorded) history of the Bay Area real estate market. This included six of the seven counties we represent posting all-time average sales price records, as well as six of the counties posting year-over-year sales volume gains. There were several key factors for this stellar growth—which included the booming local economy, sellers re-entering the market after cautiously hanging back throughout the inventory-depleted first…

Luxury Market Trends | McGuire Q2 2015

Posted On July 27th, 2015 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

The luxury market—defined by the top 10 percent of all homes sold—was a driving factor in the sales price and volume gains we saw this quarter, as beneficiaries of the flush local economy are investing in affluent properties with little hesitation. San Francisco was a benchmark example of this trend, with its $5.756M average home sale representing a 30 percent gain year-over-year, and including 55 percent more luxury homes sold than in in Q2 2014. This included a $31 million sale in…

Posted On July 27th, 2015 by McGuire Real Estate | No Comments

San Francisco once again reset the bar with its average sales price of $1.831 million, up almost $200,000 from the previous record set in Q1. The city’s buzzworthy average was up 19 percent year-over-year, and was a $700,000 gain from when the real estate boom started to take effect in Q2 2012. As importantly, the 613 homes sold were up 3 percent year-over-year and 53 percent from the otherwise tame tally seen in Q1 2015. Despite skyrocketing prices, average DOM also dropped…
