It’s time for a San Francisco Realtor Association district map update, a move that will surely make homeowners sit up and take notice.
Last updated in 2005, the Realtor map presents neighborhood boundaries according to numerical code. (For example, Noe Valley is 5C, and so on.) Where the boundaries are drawn has everything to do with where a property ends up being technically located when it is put on the market.
Neighborhoods have shifted a bit, and a few have come more into focus over the past few years. This summer, the Realtor Association will launch the new map.
A few highlights:
“Little Hollywood” gets its own area–it’s no longer casually part of Visitaction Valley.
The Financial District becomes “Barbary Coast.”
The North Panhandle becomes “NoPa,” now a distinct neighborhood from Western Addition.
Yerba Buena will now be distinct from South of Market.
Part of Bayview and Bayview Heights becomes Candlestick Point.
I’m always down for some hip new zoning, so these changes get a thumbs up from Inside SF Real Estate.
