The number of new single family home listings coming on the market this year continues to be down from 2016. In June 2017, they were 21% fewer new listings compared to June 2016. Year-to-date, they are down 8.2%. This sustained decline in new listings, coupled with a 3.6% increase year-to-date in the number of home sales, has led to an inventory of only 1.4 months.

Likewise, there were 35% fewer new condos/townhomes coming on the market this June than last. Year-to-date, there are 15% fewer new listings than in 2016. Sales are also off pace, with 13% fewer sales. Inventory stands at just 1.3 months.

The exceptionally strong San Francisco economy continues to be behind these numbers. Unemployment stands at just 3.0%, down from 2016’s 3.4%. There are more jobs filled in every category tracked by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in June, 2017 than there were in June, 2016. And while the increase in the number of new jobs is slowing, jobs are still being added.
