Yes… San Diego is going berserk too… Not on the same scale as SF but its still bad. Here is what I advise…
Going through the MLS is almost useless… As you have seen… Sellers get multiple offers at or above asking price. You have to dig harder.
Find boarded up properties. Properties with overgrown yards. Go to the outlying counties. (Here deals can be had in Riverside or San Bernadino counties). You have to get to the seller before it is listed.
Hope this helps,
