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. This week, we look at the Excelsior, which abounds with "Holy moly! There's so much room I must be a millionaire!" rentals at almost normal people prices. Not familiar with the Excelsior? Read up on our People's Guide from Excelsior local Kearstin Krehbiel.
For the price of a shoebox anywhere else, you could score this 2-bedroom, 1-bath modern home for $2,250. It has literally everything you could ask for as far as amenities: in-unit laundry, parking included, dishwasher and a large yard. It look recently remodeled with beautiful hardwood floors and lots of light. There's even talk of views and a fireplace, which sounds awfully cozy. From here you're a 15-minute (downhill!) walk to Glen Park BART and Glen Park Station, one of our favorite bars. [craigslist]
Another 2-bedroom pad for $2,250, this house (yes, house) caught our eye with some cool architectural details and lovely views. The garage has parking for two cars and there's even a separate basement for storage -- though no agricultural uses allowed, so your chicken coop must be set up outside in the private, "low-maintenance" backyard, thank you very much. This one also has amenities hard to find in more central neighborhoods, like a dishwasher, fireplace, and washer-dryer hookups. There's plenty of light and the bedrooms both have southern views, which should make getting up in the morning much easier. [craigslist]
Looking for an additional bedroom? This 3-bedroom, 2-bath top floor apartment is only $2,400 per month. You've heard it before: fireplace, laundry hookups, dishwasher, and parking. This search is really making us want to move, dear readers. The one interior picture looks clean and homey, while the building itself looks well-maintained. There's a shared yard for meeting your neighbors, and a playground across the street for families with children. [craigslist]
