Detail Economy Icon


The purpose of the Economic Indicators scorecard is to provide the public, elected officials, and City staff with a current snapshot of San Francisco’s economy. This scorecard presents timely information on economy-wide employment indicators, real estate and tourism.

The Residential Real Estate summary provides a monthly view of two primary residential real estate indicators, home values and residential asking rent. The first chart shows Zillow home price index and annual percent change for this indicator, and the second chart shows residential asking rent. The last chart presents the number of units in buildings with new permits.
