My friend and I plan on moving out to San Francisco in August. We are looking for a two bedroom apartment for no more than 1600. Any suggestions ?
I am looking out my window at SF so I am pretty familiar with the area.
First off the vacancy factor for even half way decent places in SF is pretty low. Even the cockroaches sometimes have a waiting list
Next $1600 will get you a one bedroom (maybe) or a studio - IF you can find one. If you are bringing a car better plan on a place with a parking space or having a nightly fight for parking
Across the bay in Oakland you may find a unit for that range but you will have to look.
Going further north or south on the east bay side (south of SF actually costs more because of the dot com upswing.) but you are going to be in challenged neighborhoods.. for example east Oakland has gunfire as a routine nightly background noise and Hayward and Union City have gang issues from the Latin population
You may want to check Craigslist for an idea of the prices and the product but keep in mind that about 30% of the ads can be scams or bait and switch offerings so take them with a grain of salt.
For $1600 you will get a one-room apartment, or studio. You can find a garage apartment in some residential areas.
It won't happen.
Maybe the worst ghettos in Richmond, but even that is pushing it.
