For those who want close proximity to the excitement and splendor of the Castro or Mission Delores but in a quaint, residential setting, Noe Valley is the answer. As such, Noe Valley is one of the most sought-after areas in the city for a variety of people and lifestyles, especially those with young families.
Another appealing attribute to Noe Valley’s geography is that it is situated adjacent to Twin Peaks which partly blocks the coastal fog and cool winds from the ocean, making this area slightly warmer and sunnier than other parts of the city. While the neighborhood is predominately residential, there are two retail districts located on 24th St and Church St. For those looking for the “latte factor”, a term that describes the bulk of us who want easy walkability to our nearest caffeine fix, head to Philz Coffee
or Martha & Brother’s Coffee
, both located on 24th St.
One constant theme you will find in these micro-neighborhood guides is that each one has a unique, defining, and desirable characteristic making them highly competitive. This is especially true for Noe Valley. There were just 130 single-family homes sold in Noe Valley for 2017 with an average of 25 days on market, the median sales price of $2,607,000 for a blended median square footage of 2251. In Noe Valley (as well as most places), inventory is at a low with just 30 sales for Q1 with prices up 20% or more from last year.
For the laid-back crowd who prefer tidy, palm tree-lined streets, one of the city’s best Saturday Farmer’s Markets
, and a 5-minute drive to the epicenter of the best of San Francisco, Noe Valley is the place to call home.
