Now that we've tallied up the most expensive homes on the market, gawked at the audacity of this rather unhinged Craigslist poster, and watched the city's rents climb yet again, we got kinda curious about the most expensive housing for rent. Someone earning the current minimum wage in SF—that's
$9 $10.74 an hour—could work full-time for 50 weeks a year and still not make enough to afford one month in the city's most expensive rental, a six-bedroom in Russian Hill that would set you back $25,000 per month. (If the minimum wage is voted up to $15/hour, said worker has a shot at sinking every last cent into this most luxe of rentals, but probably not after taxes.) Despite the many, many zeroes on the ends of these numbers, the offerings still can't transcend the many letdowns of Craigslist. They're chock-full of badly shot (or just plain inadequate) photos paired with inflated promises and—rather inexplicably at these prices—the same inflexibility on the pet question.
