“High-Tier” Home Price Index

Nationally, the Case-Shiller Index ticked down a tiny bit in November, but the SF Metro Area ticked up a tiny bit.

Tenants in Common in San Francisco

All the issues pertaining to TIC formation, condo conversion, Ellis Act restrictions, tenant eviction restrictions, relocation fees, financing, etc. seem to be taking a toll on the TIC market as far as quantity of sales.
