What puts San Francisco in the same category as London, Dubai and Shanghai? San Francisco was crowned the most dynamic city globally. For those of us living around the Bay Area, this comes as no surprise. A City Momentum Index looks at the underlying drivers of highly dynamic cities including the presence of corporate headquarters, top universities and technology and venture capital firms. San Francisco doesn’t come up short in any of these categories. San Francisco is expected to show the strongest rate of office rental growth in North America during 2014, according to the study. This inevitably will bring more employees, looking for more housing. Undoubtedly this will spill over into our Lafayette, Orinda and Moraga Real Estate market and other markets around the Bay.
