So... if you're thinking of Buying or Selling in the City of San Francisco... and now that the MLS here has an option to search for Short Sales... let's see how many are in the City.
As of today, September 1st 2008, there are 54 Single Family Home For Sale that are Short Sales - meaning the owner owes one or more banks more money then the home is worth - so the bank must agree to take a loss to allow the Seller to Sell. Since there are 532 other "active" homes For Sale in San Francisco that are not listed as Short Sales that means roughly 9% are Short Sales.
Condos/Lofts/Coops = 13 Short Sales. 544 non-Short Sales. So only 2% of Condos/Lofts or Coops Listings are short sales.
That's pretty interesting since you often hear that Condos are down but Single Family Homes are not. But once again, this is a story of a section of San Francisco that has gotten hit very hard, and that section is made up of mostly Single Family homes.
Take a look at a Map of the Single Family home shorts sales by clicking here. With this map you can see a massive concentration in the most southern neighborhoods.
Then a Map of the Condo Short Sales by clicking here - there are so few that there's hardly a concentration, although it's still mostly South.
