Up and coming real estate search website Homes.org recently interviewed agents and other professionals in the San Francisco, CA area to provide their readers with analysis on how that market is performing. Like many other areas in the country, right now in San Francisco, CA "the real estate market is great for buyers with interest rates and pricing so low," Elisa Uribe, a Realtor® with Wells and Bennett Realtors told Homes.org. A recent report from DataQuick supports Uribe's statement showing that in October the median sales price dropped slightly compared to the same time last year, however, the number of home sales saw a significant boost of 5.3% in the Greater Bay Area.

A number of publications, including Business Insider and DailyFinance.com, have listed the San Francisco as one of 2011's best real estate markets.
