Below, www.brokerforyou.com looked at selected San Diego neighborhoods in May 2009 & May 2008. The graph shows the median sales prices as compiled by the San Diego Association of Realtors.

One should keep in mind the above charts are just for a one year period (May 2009 vs. May 2008) and San Diego home values topped out around the Summer of 2005!

Lastly, I would note that these figures do not take into account the very prevalent seller concessions (usually payment of thousands in the buyer’s closing costs) necessitated by an ultra strong buyers market place.

  1. No matter how one looks at it, there’s always going to be housing markets that are overhyped. If somehow those markets can support whatever the hype is all about, the real estate price will remain high. If they don’t then house prices will plummet. A typical example of the latter is Southern Cal (San Diego and the Southern OC come to mind). SF is in an unusual situation. RE prices will continued to go up as long as people are willing to blow their money on housing, even if it’s exorbitantly overpriced. Meanwhile, the city’s infrastructure is crumbling. That can only go that far. As more and more middle-class people and families abandon SF, the city will be stuck with the hyper-rich and the indigent, neither of which will contribute much (or anything) to the tax-base. The moneyed rarely have any desire to plow money into their “beloved” city, and the indigent don’t have any. My bets are on “going down”.
