What $1,600 - $1,900 a Month Gets You Across San Francisco

View as Map

Times are tough out there for a rental seeker, so we thought it best to wade through Craigslist this week so you don't have to. Each day this week, we'll be handpicking select apartments that are up for grabs within a certain price range.

Unlike yesterday's short list of places to rent between $1,000 and $1,500 a month, today's list actually has a one and two bedroom sprinkled into the list. But yes, studios do dominate the map of rentals available between $1,600 and $1,900. All of the apartments we handpicked for you have at least one or two desirable features, like pets being allowed, dishwasher in the kitchen, that sort of thing. Onwards!
