The intersection of Portola, Sloat, St. Francis and West Portal has re-opened exactly on time. This high traffic intersection, which also carries the tracks for the K and M MUNI lines, has been under construction for some time creating quite a traffic jam. It is great to have the new railroad tracks down and the road smoothed out. The MUNI is back running its full length with no more bus detours! What a boon for commuters!
13 single family homes sold in St. Francis Wood in 2009; there were no Condo/TIC/Loft/Coop sales last year. We witnessed a shift in the single family home median sales price from $1,922,500 to $1,750,000, which translates to a 8.97% decrease over the prior year. The time necessary to sell a property is also critical. For 2009, the average number of days on market was 13 for family homes and it was 49 days in 2008.
