There is no city and metropolitan area quite like San Francisco and the Bay Area, and here are some of the details. Compiled solely for your entertainment and, perhaps, mild edification.
30+ years of San Francisco Bay Area real estate boom and bust cycles, as eloquently explained by our expert chief market analyst, Patrick Carlisle.
What you get in different neighborhoods for your millions of dollars will vary widely. Views often play a significant role in SF home values, but particularly in the luxury condo market, where the most expensive units often offer staggering views from very high floors.

The overall median HOUSE price in the city in the 4th quarter of 2015 was $1,250,000, so the under million-dollar house is becoming increasingly less common.
