Bank-Owned Home Sales
There were 59 bank-owned (REO) house sales and 28 REO condo sales since spring began, constituting about 8% of total unit sales in San Francisco. The average dollar per sq.ft. was $387 for REO houses and $463 for REO condos. The median REO house price was $475,000 and the average REO condo price was $440,000. The REO house market in particular is quite hot: 66% of recent sales sold virtually immediately at an average of 5% above list price. Despite the variety of neighborhoods listed below, 45 out of the 59 REO house sales occurred in the city’s less affluent south and southeast neighborhoods, stretching from Oceanview to Bay View. Half of the REO condo sales occurred in the eastern, condo-heavy neighborhoods stretching from South Beach/SOMA to Potrero Hill.

The above are specific sales which closed 3/21/10 – 6/1/10, but they are not necessarily representative of typical values for the property type and neighborhood delineated. In real estate, the devil’s in the details: exact location within a neighborhood, quality of condition and renovations, quality of views, curb appeal, “extra” rooms, lot size and many other factors all impact property values. SFD = single family dwelling (house). Square footage is based on “livable space”, which may be measured in different ways, but does not include decks, patios, yards, garages, unfinished basements and attics, or rooms built without permit (“bonus rooms” and “in-law apts”). Square footage figures are often unreported or unreliable.
