A realtor sign is shown in front of a home for sale in San Francisco, Monday, March 17, 2014. San Francisco will now lend as much as $200,000 to some homebuyers toward a down payment on their first house or condominium. Mayor Ed Lee's decision to double the previous limit of $100,000 was intended to help middle-class residents who have been hit hard by the housing crunch. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu) less
