You might think this data is no indication of the current state of affairs, but we’d beg to differ. Why? If the market and everything has fallen out form under us like the media would lead you to believe, you’d think 100% of these buyers would have extended these deals, renegotiated, or pulled out entirely. Although we can’t know for certain what type of renegotiations went on, we can know with high probability there were multiple offers on all of these homes and the winning buyers STILL proceeded to close despite the global pandemic, Shelter in Place, and national unemployment numbers like we’ve never seen.

San Francisco has been defying the odds for many years, and we suspect it will continue to do so. To what extent is still TBD, but we can categorically tell you buyer demand is still out there, and it’s intense. So if you’re in a position of wanting, or needing to sell, give us a shout, and we’ll discuss your options.

Share this with your neighbors or friends to brighten their day, because things will work out. Home values have not dropped 30% like the stock market did. We will get through this.
