SAN FRANCISCO RENTAL MARKET—Today we devoted our attention to, among other things, the problem of rent and renting. Though we took a more playful approach to the subject—no statistics or graphs for today, thank you—our underlying message is clear: the rental market provides the one and only option for many, and yet rental prices are creeping further toward the abyss. (Cue Puccini's La Bohème or, if you must, the soundtrack to the musical Rent.) In addition, the already subjective concept of "value" grows murkier still, even before numbers are thrown in to the mix! [Beyond Chron]
