Paragon Real Estate has compiled a series of year-end charts for San Francisco illustrating note-worthy 2015 housing stats. We sifted through the lot and came up with a few of the more interesting ones, including the one below detailing the average house size by neighborhood.
The two neighborhoods with the highest square footage, Pacific & Presidio Heights and Sea Cliff, are typically more affluent and hug the coastline just south of the Golden Gate Bridge. There’s more room to spread out since they’re across the city from downtown. The two with the lowest, Bernal Heights and the Excelsior & Portola, are just south of the Mission neighborhood. They’re filled with families, aspiring artists, and some of the best taquerias that you’ll find off the beaten path.
