Thanksgiving is in the rear view, and we’re speeding toward Christmas, which only means one thing when it comes to San Francisco real estate: Inventory will steadily decline from this point on, and serious buyers need to take a serious look at existing inventory.
There are 245 single-family homes and 417 condos currently available, a good portion of which have been on the market for three weeks or more.
There’s nothing wrong with setting your sights on 2019 if you’re not quite ready yet to write offers. But if you’ve been house hunting this Fall and have come up dry, December may end your drought. You can buy your next home, enjoy the holidays and schedule your moving truck for January. It’s a nice way to kick off the new year!
