It's quite clear that the San Francisco rental market is hot hot hot right now, so here at Curbed we're going to bring you a bevy of rental properties each week for your perusal — one in each price range for budget, middle-of-the-road, and luxury. Today, we look at Potrero Hill.
Budget: You know what always catches our eye? A yellow house. Although for this to qualify as budget you're going to need some roommates, which is common practice in this town. This 3-bedroom, 1.5-bath flat is $3,600, so each person will shell out $1,200. You get a shared garden space, storage, and laundry to share and a charming flat with a dishwasher to call your own. You're an easy walk to 24th Street in the Mission and SF General, and the listing says most rooms have views to the south of Bernal. [craigslist]
Mid-range: On the other side of the hill, this 2-bedroom apartment is $3,495 per month, so each roommate (or child! Ha!) is paying $1,750. The location is great - close to some fun Potrero Hill bars and Bottom of the Hill, which can't be beat. The apartment itself has cool exposed brick, hardwood floors, a fireplace, a dishwasher, and in the building you have shared laundry, a parking spot (included), and a lovely shared garden. The management company doesn't do crazy open houses, so you can view the apartment without having to jockey for attention, a huge plus in our book. [craigslist]
Luxury: For $4,440 for two bedrooms, we'd say $2,200 per person is pretty steep for sharing an apartment. This place does have its fancy pants on though: it's all new and shiny, with basically every feature you could ask for - two master suites, a shared courtyard, a security guard and assigned parking. It's also super close to Caltrain for South Bay commuters. The downside to new, of course, is that you're not protected by rent control, so watch out if the rental market continues to be as bonkers as its been the past year. [craigslist]
