A client texted me with the following:
“HELP! John, I left for San Diego and can’t recall if I shut off the sprinkler. Could you drive by sometime today and see?” My client gave me the code to open the garage door, from which I could access the backyard.
Being more than happy to accommodate my loyal client, I drove over and entered the garage. When I peered through a back window, it looked like the sprinklers were off; but just to make sure, I went out the back door. Sure enough, the sprinklers were all off, but the back door slammed shut, locking me out of the house!

May 2010 Market Charts Analysis
Statistics are typically broad-brush generalities and are subject to fluctuations due to a variety of reasons. Median prices in particular may be affected by other market factors besides changes in value. All information contained herein is derived from sources deemed reliable, but may contain errors and omissions, and is not warranted. Sales not reported to MLS are not included in these analyses.
SF Homes Accepting Offers
The number of homes accepting offers in April 2010 continued to climb: 46% higher than one year ago; 33% higher than 2 years ago. It was the highest monthly total in years.
An overview of new listings, accepted offers, closed sales, price reductions, listings expired or withdrawn (without selling), and listings that came back on market (expired/ withdrawn listings that were re-listed, and accepted offers that fell through). The number of closed sales mostly reflects accepted-offer activity in February and March, which is the main reason for the discrepancy between the quantity of accepted offers and closed sales in April — the other reason being deals that fall through after offer acceptance. (Deals typically fail due to either financing or inspection issues.) Price reduction and back-on-market data are approximations. A single property can be included in more than one category within the same month.
