What $3,000/Month Can Rent You Around San Francisco

New, 1 comment

Last month, we showed you what you could get for $2,800/month -- just above the average price of a one bedroom in San Francisco. But how much more can you get if you've got an extra $200/month to spend? You tell us what looks like the most bang for your buck.


? In the Mission, this $3,000/month one bedroom offers hardwood, a working fireplace, dishwasher, and – believe it or not – parking for one car included in the rent. The listing also boasts a washer and dryer, though we can't tell if it's shared in the building or in-unit – that would sound almost too good to be true. The kitchen and bathroom are dated and bland, but for the price, we suppose that's to be expected. We just hope the smell of fresh paint won't overpower the smell of Tartine's pastries, located just around the corner.


? As they say: location, location, location. This corner one bedroom on Union Street in Russian Hill is going for $2,995/month, and comes with hardwood, onsite laundry, and an elevator. The kitchen may be small and outdated, but the access to shops, restaurants, and public transit means that you don't have to spend too much time in there anyway. Don't bring your pet, though, unless it's a registered service animal (or have a great pet resume).


? In the Tendernob, this $3,050/month one bedroom in a vintage high-rise comes with a doorman, an elevator, and lots of charm. It get's a lot of light and the fireplace works. The building also has shared laundry, a communal rooftop deck with sweeping views, and parking?for your bicycle. But located on the 6th floor of 666 Post, it's not for the superstitious.


? If you really want to save money, grab a roommate or two and head to the Sunset, where $3,150/month will get you two bedrooms, a bonus room, a large deck, a backyard, an in-unit washer and dryer, and a garage for two cars. You can even bring your cat for an extra $500 deposit. The bedrooms are carpeted and that yard could use some work, though.


? If you've got pets, this $2,895/month one bedroom near Duboce Park welcomes your cat and/or small dog (under 50 lbs). It seems like a stretch to classify this location as the Lower Haight, but there is a Whole Foods moving in nearby, and the trendy neighborhoods – Lower Haight, Hayes Valley, the Mission -- are just a short walk away. No parking, but there are Zip Cars in the building. And rest assured, cleaning is still underway, so it should be tidied up by the time you're ready to move in.
