San Jose and Santa Rosa Are Currently Considered Overvalued

CoreLogic's latest Home Price Insights Report examines real estate values in the Bay Area and offers five-year projections.

  • Home prices grew by 7.6 percent in California and 7.9 percent in the San Francisco metropolitan area on an annual basis in October.
  • The San Francisco, San Rafael, Napa, Vallejo, and Oakland metro area housing markets are currently considered within their normal value ranges, while Santa Rosa and San Jose are overvalued.
  • By 2022, all Bay Area housing markets except San Rafael are projected to be overvalued.


Despite the high cost of purchasing a home in the Bay Area, most local markets are still within their normal value ranges, although that is not projected to be the case five years from now.

That’s according to CoreLogic’s latest U.S. Home Price Insights report, which says that U.S. home prices grew by 7 percent year over year in October. Appreciation in California and the San Francisco metro area outstripped the national rate, growing by a respective 7.6 percent and 7.9 percent. In a statement accompanying the report, CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft noted that the national home price has grown in excess of 6 percent for four straight months, the longest such streak in more than three years.
