Excelsior is a small, mostly ignored area in San Francisco. It’s named for the Latin interpretation of “ever upward” — suitable given Excelsior’s sunny new opinion in the housing market.
In 2017, real-estate site Redfin named Excelsior the second hottest area in San Francisco, formed the ranking on increases in internet traffic to listings there. Excelsior homes typically sell in 19 days at 111% of the inventory price. The median sales cost was $890,000.
