Do employers in SF only want local candidates? (San Francisco)

Hi,

I'm a native San Franciscan, currently living in London. I've been applying for jobs in California and found that I am not getting any responses, even as an American citizen. I have a permanent address in the Bay Area and can easily move back to start a new job. So I was wondering if employers do not want to bother with American candidates who are living overseas, which explains why am I not getting responses? I recently graduated with distinction from a leading London university and also had graduated with honors from Berkeley. I do list my London address on my job applications, but I also point out I have a permanent address in California.
