Sales of Bay Area homes priced above $3 million doubled in February, with most local regions posting large gains.
Sales of homes priced higher than $1 million also continued to grow.
Regionally, East Bay sales slowed, while Silicon Valley and the Wine Country saw more sales this February.
The Bay Area median price jumped another 16 percent year over year, though high-end sales drove a large part of the increase.

Thirty-year, fixed-rate mortgages reached 4.46 percent as of March 8, 2018 according to a Freddie Mac survey, the highest since the spring of 2014.
