Why is the 7% to 9% decline in SF rents never in the news?

"Data" reflects only what’s available on "Zumper" rather than the actual citywide median.

Do you have a better source of data @SFace ? I'd be grateful.

I spot check two apartment complex as barometer for rents.

Archstone soma.

Fox plaza.

Based on those prices as published. Rents are not down.

I think Zumper includes many more apartment complexes. In fact, all their data might be apartment complexes.

It sounds like rents are down from 2016 peaks, but up slightly from a year ago.

The two properties (Archstone SOMA and Fox Plaza) are an odd choice for a city-wide barometer as they’re both in the redeveloped NEMA area and are about one block apart off of Market between 9th and 10th.

I'm not super familiar with the SF market, but I see that there are decent looking 2BR condos for sale around $900k like this one for example https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/50-Jerrold-Ave-UNIT-411-San-Francisco-CA-94124/241586765_zpid/?fullpage=true, so paying $4.5k or $5k rent a month seems crazy.

It's a consistent comparison point that is easily measurable. Nothing else is as measurable as that. I mean you can add park merced if I wanted.

Deep in hunters point. There are projects to the north south east and west. Its deal breaker.
