Finding a rental in a great building in this town can be one of the more horrifying experiences in life. As ever, supply is low and demand is high. And while San Francisco prices remain high on the national average, rent prices dipped ever-so-slightly since 2015, bringing the median asking rent for apartment searchers down to $3,490 for a 1 bedroom. Yes, techies are starting to contemplate moving away due to soaring rents, but far worse, the city's working class is being forced to relocate twice as fast as expected.
As far as what's hot and new, Curbed SF has done some of the sifting for you and come up with a list of 25 buildings that frequently have apartments for rent. All are either brand new or often have availability simply based on the sheer number of units on the premises. These won't be the very cheapest rentals around town; in fact, quite a few are super-luxury. Even for those that are purely market rate, prices tend to be higher than your typical Craigslist rental because big buildings usually mean amenities, which add up to a higher price premium.
But if you're the sort to take advantage of things like roof decks and on-site gyms and pools, the right situation may be just around the corner.
