Be aware, that's a scam. I had a similar experience last week, Airbnb would never ask you to pay outside their platform. Thanks!

The Inner Richmond is a popular area with Geary Ave. and Clement St. as well as the Presidio Park as a back yard. Location-wise it is very connected to the rest of San Francisco and practically geographically in the center of the city. With low rates demand is higher than supply and the entire city's real estate market is being lifted.

If you are looking for an agent to help you buy or sell a home in the Inner Richmond please call me anytime. Thank you.

Hi Christina,

I would check out this inner-richmond parking map:

to see for yourself.

I agree with Eric that parking there is generally easier to find there compared to other parts of the city but I would recommend finding a building with parking. There are 6-10 private parking facilities in the area that you could probably pay to have a monthly spot at. Use the map above to find parking rates at these locations. ... more

According to Trulia's stats from and based on my own subjective impression, the crime rate in the Inner Richmond is pretty low compared to many areas of the city. Looks like there are some pockets that have more crime activity -- particularly around 6th and Geary.

I frequently see a number of homeless people around Golden Gate Park and 7th Avenue, near the Safeway, but I couldn't say they committing crime or are a safety danger.

It can be too quiet, not citylike at all, on this block. Atop a hill or crest, when the fog is blowing, it can graze deeply into the trees. Street parking is limited, and house prices can be expensive. ... more

The blocks on 10th Avenue between Balboa and Cabrillo seem to have come from some old East Coast town, with large, multistory houses sporting front lawns and back yards and rear garages and sidewalks lined with tall, shady trees. Quiet and almost exclusive is the feel of this spot, although it's close to two main bus lines, the 31 Balboa and the 38/38L Geary, with a Safeway supermarket a few blocks away. ... more

Bev Rowden answered:
No, NO, do not do this! People buy Edwardians for the original elegance & atmosphere. See real estate pics online. The "great room", as you suggest, is trendy right now and for some folks it is just what they need. However this one-room design is generally found in the newer homes with a more casual feel, esp. vacation homes.

Not only will you not get your money back, but you DECREASING your chances of selling at an appropriate price.
