Executive Summary:

  • IPO expectations are already showing up in home sales activity, particularly in San Francisco and San Mateo

  • Santa Clara, Wine Country and Contra Costa remain slower compared to last year
  • Homes priced between $1 million and $2 million continue to struggle, except in San Francisco and San Mateo, likely a result of tax reform changes and reduced state and local tax (SALT) and mortgage interest deductions

  • While growth in inventory of homes for sales is broad based, availability of homes priced above $3 million accelerated again to a 26 percent annual growth in April
  • While price growth remains flat in most regions, San Francisco median prices up 2 percent year-over-year in April
  • A 9 percent annual increase in homes under contract suggests buyers are back in droves, especially for homes priced over $3 million, up 44 percent year-over-year
