San Francisco Home Listings Preliminary

I’ve just compiled a rough draft data set of all Bay Area home listings. The data set isn’t refined enough to release quite yet, but I thought I’d share some images taken from Google Earth after I imported it.

As of April 13, 2006, there were over 27,000 homes listed for sale in the Bay Area, with 20,106 listed as 'Active Listings' and 7,529 as 'Pending Sales'. In the following images, the pending sales are the red dots, and the active listings are white. Each dot represents one property (house, condo, land) offered for sale in the Bay Area.

The first image illustrates the impact Bay Area investors have had on the regional market. Notice the tendrils of speculation that spread out along the highways into the Central Valley, up to Sacramento, down to Monterey, and up into the foothills of the Sierras. "
