Against my will, I’m back from vacation, and back at it. So it’s on with the real estate show.

This first chart below is a very simplified, approximate and smoothed out chart graphing the percentage ups and downs in San Francisco home prices over the past 30+ years. We have other charts that illustrate more exact changes in median sales prices, average dollar per square foot values, and Case-Shiller Index values.

San Francisco median home prices since 1993, by property type (houses, condos and TICs), in thousands of dollars ($950 = $950,000). Changes in median price are not perfectly correlated to changes in home values since median prices can be affected by a variety of factors. Still, the overall trend line is certainly reflective of market conditions.

Factors behind the market: 30-year average mortgage interest rates for conforming loans since 1981, per the FHLMC (Freddie Mac).
