The general assumption is that finding housing in San Francisco is difficult, time-consuming, and overall EXPENSIVE. Those points are all true but there are definitely strategies to find cheaper housing without resorting to either settling for a half-living room with two roommates plus live-in boyfriends .My personal opinion is that San Francisco housing prices are generally overblown because of articles reporting figures of 3K+ median rent while another site will display scary map pictures like the one below of average one-bedroom prices per neighborhood.And the prices here aren’t inaccurate, they’re just depicting SF’s housing prices inaccurately by only showing one-bedroom apartments. One-bedroom apartments in San Francisco are especially expensive because space is expensive in SF and one-bedrooms take up a lot of space on a per person basis. Indeed if we only look at one bedroom apartment prices as a metric for overall SF pricing, the city looks alarmingly expensive.
2 bedrooms for $3500
