FILE - This Oct. 10, 2013 file photo shows a truck entering the Foster Farms processing plant in Livingston, Calif. The Obama administration is overhauling poultry plant inspections for the first time in more than 50 years, a move it says could result in 5,000 fewer foodborne illnesses each year. The final rules announced Thursday would reduce the number of government poultry inspectors by around a fourth. But those that remain will focus more on food safety than quality, requiring them to pull more birds off the line for closer inspections and encouraging more testing for pathogens. There would also be more inspectors checking the facilities to make sure they are clean. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)

George Limperis, a realtor with Paragon Real Estate Group, smiles while walking through the kitchen of a property in the Noe Valley neighborhood in San Francisco, Wednesday, July 30, 2014. In the souped-up world of San Francisco real estate, where the median selling price for homes and condominiums hit seven figures for the first time last month, the cool million that would fetch a mansion on a few acres elsewhere will now barely cover the cost of an 800-square foot starter home that needs work and may or may not include private parking.
