SF TIC Market: Small But Mighty

SF TIC Market: Small But Mighty

Tenancy-in-common (TIC) interests accounted for a small portion of San Francisco sales in 2019. But the average price was almost $1,300,000, and there were a fair number of luxury sales in the $2,000,000+ range.

Only 262 TICs sold in 2019—a comparably small quantity compared to the 2,530 condos sold. But the fact that there is a still a solid market for a property type that involves sharing title with other building owners speaks to the risks buyers are willing to assume in their quest to become San Francisco homeowners.

Know TIC Loan Guidelines Before You Start Your Search

Tenancy-in-common (TIC) interests require what’s called fractional financing. You essentially have a loan on your interest in the property instead of sharing one loan with all the other TIC owners.

Many buyers seriously consider TICs because they know they’ll typically get better space in a more central location than they would from a condo.

But the loan guidelines for fractional financing are different from the ones for condo loans. So before you hit the open house circuit, check out these guidelines courtesy of TIC loan expert Gordon Friedman at Guarantee Mortgage:

– 1% origination fee: All TIC loans require an upfront fee equal to 1% of the loan amount borrowed Continue Reading

State of the TIC Market: February 2018

Buyers snapped up tenancy-in-common (TIC) interests in San Francisco’s most popular neighborhoods over the past six months, proving that the TIC market is alive and well despite its inherent ownership risks.

TICs represented a fairly small percentage of overall sales from August 2017-January 2018. Though almost 1100 condos sold in that timeframe, only 118 TICs did. The TIC median price was $1,017,500—closer to $1.2M for TICs in two- to four-unit buildings. But more than half of all sales were for TICs in buildings with five or more units, notable and surprising because these properties won’t be eligible for condo conversion if the lottery indeed resumes in 2024.

State of the TIC Market: August 2017

The tenancy-in-common (TIC) market remains strong in popular neighborhoods like Noe Valley and Russian Hill, especially if that TIC is in a two-unit building.

Buyers haven’t shied away from purchasing TIC interests, despite limitations related to 2013 legislation that significantly reduced the number of properties allowed to condo convert. Many TIC owners have resigned themselves to the reality that they hold title to “permanent” TICs.

TICs in two-unit buildings aren’t affected by that legislation if each unit is 100% owner occupied. In that case, both owners can pursue “fast track” condo conversion. Continue Reading

TIC Market Slower, But Still Strong

The tenancy-in-common (TIC) market in San Francisco may not be the busiest it’s ever been. After all, condo prices have fallen since the 2005-2008 market heights, and most buyers would prefer to own their own unit (vs an interest in a building, with fellow owners all on the same title).

But the TIC market is certainly not dead. A total of 120 TIC interests have sold year to date, at an average of $598,422. TICs are taking longer to sell than other property types, and those 120 TICs took an average of 80 days to sell. There are 90 TIC interests currently in contract, and 54 TICs on the market (including a newly renovated, seven-unit building on Dolores at 22nd Street). Continue Reading

State of the TIC Market in San Francisco

Despite their risky and complex nature, tenancy-in-common (TIC) interest sales made a strong showing in 2009.

A total of 403 TIC interests sold last year, for an average of $603,780. Units spent an average of 92 days on market (DOM), and that lengthy timeframe doesn’t seem to be shortening. Of the 403 TICs sold, 162 sold in the fourth quarter of 2009, at an average of $586,755. September and October saw 73 TICs selling, and surprisingly, 89 interests sold in the last two months of 2009. Buyers apparently weren’t slowed down by the holidays in this property category, either. Continue Reading
