After investigating with the Departments of Planning and DPW, their inventory and pipeline reports, U.S. census data, MLS data, Andy Sirkin, NAHB and a half dozen other resources, we came up with the following estimates about San Francisco housing inventory:
- 124,000 housing units are owner occupied. About 4% to 4.5% of San Francisco houses and 6.5% to 7% of condo, co-ops and TIC units are sold annually.
- 222,000 housing units are rented out and 25,000+units are vacant at any given time
* These are very approximate estimates based on data from the U.S. Census, the SF Depts. of Planning & Public Works, MLS and other sources deemed reliable.

The Great Dickens Christmas Fair is a one-of-a-kind holiday adventure into Victorian London – an elaborate party with hundreds of costumed players performing and interacting with patrons in over 120,000 square feet of theatrically-lit music halls, pubs, dance floors and Christmas shops.
It’s a twilight evening in Charles Dickens’ London Town; a city of winding lanes filled with colorful characters from both literature and history. Enticing aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty foods fill the air. Cries of street vendors hawking their wares ring out above the bustling crowd. Dozens of lamplit shops are filled to overflowing with Christmas gifts. The Dickens Christmas Fair is a treasured Bay Area tradition since 1970 and a splendid way to celebrate the holidays.

What Did San Francisco Homebuyers Buy in 2013?
Views, prices, architecture, neighborhoods, property types and sizes, parking, probate sales and appreciation rates: We data-mined all of San Francisco’s 2013 sales reported to MLS through the end of November and charted the results below.
Sales as described in and reported to San Francisco MLS by 11/25/13. All data herein is from sources deemed (at least somewhat) reliable — i.e. the information input by listing agents regarding their own listings — but may contain errors and is subject to revision. These charts do not include sales unreported to MLS, such as the sale of many so-called “pocket listings” and many of the new-development condo sales that occur.
