    1 quarter is 3 months. This means that in your post, rent is 1,333 a month. Is is NOT!!!!!!! expensive. Even 4,000 a MONTH is not expensive in SFO

    Its as simple as supply and demand. High demand with a limited supply requires the prices to increase...economics 101.

    Rent control is the reason. Half the city is paying peanuts for space. That restricts the supply so the other half pays massive rents for the very limited supply of deregulated (newer) places.

    To add insult to injury, those paying peanuts often have more space than they need and rent out spare rooms on Airbnb. That is so profitable that they do not need a day job. If I was a landlord, I would be foaming at the mouth.

    san fran is a very desirable location so yes, rent is very expensive. there is a lot of history with this city. a gal i knew had 3 jobs and was paying $6000 to rent a 2 bed with a loft...how nuts is that? all because she just wanted to be in the city. and my cousin currently lives there and is paying $2500 for a small two bed, one bath...she's paying $700 more than my mortgage...

    it's very true CA is very expensive to live in. The minimum wage is higher in this state and everything usually equals out tho.

      not in this damn state. you can never keep up, with rents on average being $1600+. and that's for a studio, for crying out loud.

    High tech workers can pay more, so prices go up because the supply of rentals and "to buy" is limited.
