Hi Sssuejohn,

A walk-thru is the most common procedure - both at the beginning and end of your lease. With how competitive the rental market has become, most landlords likely wouldn't even give you the chance to have a full on inspection when they have scores of other tenants who are willing to sign the lease ASAP.

Always worth a try, though.

We utlize a credit report service that will run what is called a 'Score Wizard' that will tell us exactly how to bring up your credit scores MAXIMALLY.
The first step would be taking your information and a major credit card to run the credit.
Then we decide how much of your liquid funds you want to apply toward your cards to improve the credit. We then take that amount and input it into the Score Wizard. The wizard tells us exactly (to the dollar) you are to pay down your credit cards AND will tell you exactly what your score will be after those payments are applied.
Once the payments are applied, you provide the current statement (must have both the account number and your name appearing on the statement).
We then have the credit agency verify the balances with the credit card company and that info is forwarded onto the bureau or bureaus that you want to have rescore your credit.
The cost for this about $100 per line of credit per credit agency (Equifax, Experian, TransUnion).
As lenders, we look at the middle of the three scores. I try to focus on one of the three agencies so that we can keep that cost down to a minimum for you.

Hi Dillipb1,

I am sure by now you've completed your purchase or perhaps moved on to another property. That said, regardless, it is always important to complete your due diligence as a buyer making one of your largest financial investments. Even if the seller is adament about the sale being As-Is - you generally will still have an opportunity to complete your inspections at which point you can decide if it's worth moving forward "as-is" or perhaps even attempt to re-negotiate.

Paul Bisaillon answered:
Two unit "owner occupied" buildings are exempt from the normal San Francisco "Condo Lottery" process to complete condo conversion. Among other items, this exemption requires that each "owner occupant" maintain at least a 25% interest in the title (ownership) of property for a period of one year. This will likley allow you to convert each unit in your building into an individual condo in a little over a year.

Your ownership interest is determined by how you took title to the property and is unrelated to your mortgage. With most two unit building in San Fancisco this "division of interest" is split 50%-50% (or something very close to this like 45%-55%).

If for example, you bought your individual TIC unit (in a two unit building) with your brother and your brother does not also occupy the unit as his primary San Francisco residence, then you, as "owner occupant", would then hold a 25% interest in the property (one half of a 50% interest being 25%) - however under this example you would still qualify as a "owner occupant" under the SF condo conversion requirements.

Good luck and feel free to contact me ( with additional questions and/or sources of information regarding TIC condo conversion.

One of my favorite resources to answer questions about the San Francisco rental market is a site run by a guy who slices and dices CraigsList rental data for San Francisco in a bunch of different ways. It’s a great way to see how much you’ll get where in the City at different price points. I've added the link below. Have fun! ... more

I don't think there has been a better time in the San Francisco/Penninsula area to be a buyer. Trust me, that will change. If you want to build equity, now is the time to buy. Rent isn't that cheap at this time in S.F. anyway.
No, I'm not a realtor, just someone who invests in real estate that wishes he had more capital to invest at this time. Good luck!

No. Single family homes in San Francisco will always be short in supply and high in demand. If you are a seller and a buyer then no matter what the market does you are affected on both sides. But no this market is the brightest spot in the whole state. ... more
