New, 1 comment

Every once in a while, Curbed SF checks in with the San Francisco rental market. And we do it the layman's way: by scouring Craigslist. In today's episode of Rental Watch, we're looking at two-bedroom apartments between $1,500 - $2,500 / month. We'll start spendy, and work our way down to earth.

2008_07_rental-watch-1What: 2 bedroom, 2 bath, top-floor unit
Where: Sunset
How Much: $2,500
The Hard Sell: "LARGE REMODELED (UPSTAIRS)HOME WITH GOURMET KITCHEN, HARDWOOD FLOORS,HOT TUB IN MASTER BEDROOM,AND NICE PATIO IN BACKYARD...PETS OK." The ad also mentions something about quiet neighbors, so you might not want to type in all caps.

Where: Richmond
How Much: $2,195
The Hard Sell: Wondering what to do with that bonus room? This listing offers the following helpful ideas: "home office, nursery, play room or a small 3rd bedroom."

2008_07_rental-watch-3What: 2 bedroom, 1 bath town home
Where: As close as you can get to SF State without paying tuition
How Much: $1,899
The Hard Sell: "...on special for $1899, the true market rent was $2480. Living in a townhome at Parkmerced is like living in a single family home, with mail service through your front door." Mail service through the front door!
