Districts 3 and 10, R.I.P.

The Excelsior, Bayview, Hunter’s Point, Oceanview, Ingleside:  these are some of the neighborhoods included in the San Francisco Association of Realtors’  MLS (Multiple Listing Service) Districts 3 and 10.  It’s been suggested here and elsewhere  that perhaps these non-“core” San Francisco neighborhoods have been pulling down San Francisco’s home prices disproportionately.  The theory, plausible enough, is that these more modestly-priced neighborhoods would be feeling the effects of the economic slowdown more than the tonier “core” neighborhoods, whose denizens’ bank accounts might provide a little more padding against hard times.
I recently published a chart that compared the percentage change of Districts 3 and 10 from their all-time highs to that of the city as a whole.  Some readers of theFrontSteps expressed an interest in seeing what the chart would look like if you excluded those districts from the data set for the city as a whole.  (Districts 3 and 10 make up over 20% of the city’s single family home sales for the 5 year period covered by the chart.)  I aim to please, so I ran the numbers again and here are the results.
