Marin, SF, CA & U.S.
Median Home Price Trends

Annual Median Sales Price Changes
by Dollar and by Percentage

Appreciation is typically viewed through the lens of percentage changes, but looking at dollar-value increases is another angle that is sometimes more interesting. Below are charts measuring appreciation by both parameters.

Comparing the first half of 2018 to 2017, the Marin median house sales price increased by an astounding $135,000. However, it is not a given that the second half of the year will see home price appreciation at similar rates: Prices could indeed increase further, or they might plateau or even tick down instead. For the last 7 years, spring has typically been the most feverish selling season of the year and has often powered most of the appreciation occurring over the full year.

Median sales price is that price at which half the sales occurred for more and half for less, and it is often affected by other factors besides changes in fair market value, such as changes in inventory or in luxury home sales. Sometimes median sales prices in a particular community fluctuate without great meaningfulness. This is especially true in smaller towns with relatively few sales and wide ranges of sales prices. A specific comparative market analysis of a particular property is sometimes the only way to gauge appreciation trends.

It is impossible to know how median and average value statistics apply to any particular home without a specific, tailored, comparative market analysis. In real estate, the devil is always in the details.

These analyses were made in good faith with data from sources deemed reliable, but may contain errors and are subject to revision. It is not our intent to convince you of a particular position, but to attempt to provide straightforward data and analysis, so you can make your own informed decisions. Median and average statistics are enormous generalities: There are hundreds of different markets in San Francisco and the Bay Area, each with its own unique dynamics. Median prices and average dollar per square foot values can be and often are affected by other factors besides changes in fair market value. Longer term trends are much more meaningful than short-term. Late-reported MLS activity may change certain statistics to some small degree.
