Have you been on craigslist yet? I know a lot of landlords will put on ads "no pets" but some may change their mind once they meet you and your pet. This was the case for my fiance and I in the place we were previously renting (although it wasn't in Daly City).

If you're concerned about crime you can go to
there you can use the tabs on the side and enter dates to pull up crime information. Hope I helped. If you have any follow-up questions, feel free to email me.

In a hot market usually it's hard to purchase a property for less than market value especially if it's not a distressed sale. What may help you to buy a property for market value in a hot market is a savvy agent that has a great offer presentation. Making sure they reach out to the listing agent as well as the seller to establish some type of relationship. Your offer presentation must be extremely detailed, including cover page, photo of family, net to seller, shorten contingencies, an offer summary page, and detailed escrow instructions. These are a couple of things that the seller will see and will start to feel more comfortable and feel less likely that you will back out of the deal. Remember sellers are likely as nervous as the buyer in most cases. They are nervous that their property might not sell or they will not get what their asking price so be sure to be persistent and extremely detailed. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. ... more

I guess you can tell from the responses below-it just simply is not worth it. In fact, I knew someone in Daly City who did just what you are asking and they were discovered by the City. They had to rip it all out at their own expense. ... more

Daly City has the designation "NSFHA" or "No Special Flood Hazard Areas" in FEMA's Community Status Book for Flood Insurance Rate Maps in California. What this means is that FEMA has not mapped any flood hazard areas in Daly City so flood insurance will likely not be required for any proprties within the City of Daly City. Daly City does participate in the National Flood Insurance Propgram so flood insurance is available if you wanted to carry it. It would be available at a lower rate than that of areas in flood hazard zones. ... more
