SAN FRANCISCO—Five local real estate-related measures were on the ballot this week and all but two seem to be headed for defeat. In addition, two statewide propositions having real estate implications were passed by California voters, GlobeSt.com learns.

The measure, an attempt to slow gentrification, seems to be poised for victory.
