TIC means tenants in common.

The other one that you might come across is fractional ownership.

I used to live only a little bit farther out Geary, and can confirm the 45 minute Muni ride to get to 4th and King. But since Caltrain always runs on time and Muni never does, you have to leave home an hour before the train you want is scheduled to leave to ensure you will make it on time.

This is an option for occasional weekend use but not at all practical for commuting.

I never tried the 22nd street station because it seems kinda sketchy, at least as seen from the train.

This is a great mix of the suburban with the urban. You are faraway enough from down town not to have to feel like you live in a big city when you don't want to, yet close enough to enjoy city life when you are in the mood for it. Most of the houses are duplexes or single family homes, most people have their own garage and a small garden. At the same time you will be close enough to Geary Boulevard to walk to your neighborhood bar or stroll to dinner. Living so close to Geary is a great advantage because there is every kind of business imaginable. You can get your photo framed, buy a new mattress or have the best Korean barbecue all in one block. Parker Avenue itself is clean, quiet and well maintained. There are attractive lawns and well cared for vehicles everywhere. You will likely run into families and people over 40 on the street here. ... more

Because of all its advantages, this part of town is not cheap, but neither is it trendy. If you are looking for a hip part of town to live in, this is not it. If you drive, coming home in Geary Blvd traffic everyday can get old fast. There are no freeways close by. And if you do not drive, although there are plenty of buses, it will take you a while to get to downtown. If you like lots of trees this is not the part of town for you. ... more
