What $2,000 - $2,500 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 missed Wednesday, sorry!), we'll be handpicking select apartments that are up for grabs within a certain price range.

On Monday we showed you what $1,000 - $1,500 a month across San Francisco gets you (spoiler alert: not much), and on Tuesday we mapped what $1,600 to $,1900 could get you (still a lot of studios.) Today we're mapping apartments in San Francisco that are between $2,000 and $2,500. Sure, there are few studios, but they made the cut because they were extra special. The majority of the listings are one bedrooms. Big bonus: a single-family home makes an appearance.
