San Francisco City and Homes

If you're at all attuned to America's real estate market, you've heard about San Francisco's ongoing housing crisis.

Residents have been doing crazy things to survive the sky-high cost of living, from camping out in Google's parking lot to taking up residence on a sailboat

But according to a recent report by online real-estate broker Truliathe story is slightly different for San Francisco's longtime homeowners, who are enjoying incredibly high rates-of-return on their homes.

In 1986, America's most expensive housing market was San Francisco, where the median value of a home was $160,955. Today, it remains the country's most expensive housing market, with a median home value of $1,058,474. That's a 557% rise over 30 years, more than any other US metro area.
