Hi Tim

Safe and convenient, in a newer community with new homes. I would do a drive by to check it out at night and in the morning so you can get a better feel of who and what is around. I believe this one is no longer available for rent. ... more

A few good areas of SSF are Buri Buri, Avalon Park, and the Industrial area near San Bruno Mountain where the newer homes are.

As for safe, you should check with the SSFPD.

It depends on what you are comparing it to? If you are comparing it to properties on the other side of 280 or even West of Skyline, it's very good.

You get fog, but you also see the sunshine a good deal of the time. One good thing is in our Indian summer, it will always cool down at night.

If you go South of San Bruno ave in San Bruno, the weather gets much nicer.

From my experience, San Mateo would be the farthest south (I did this commute for awhile) and Daly City/Pacifica and parts of San Francisco nearer toward the HWY 1 would be good. I would try avoid 101 if I can most peak times if you are not going to be living in Daly City or Pacifica or the most San Mateo to the south. 280 is better than the 101 for commuting. Of course, this also depends on where you work in South San Francisco. Which part of SSF do you work at? I offer free reports on areas of interest to you. You can sign up at my website, no obligation. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!! ... more

Brendan gave you the tools, the only thing I would add is to call the SSFPD and see what kind of crime they have experienced.

Hi Doug,

South San Francisco has great access to both San Francisco and the south bay. I direct my SSF buyer clients to the City of SSF's website, which is one of the better city websites. I get regular email alerts regarding upcoming SSF meetings and issues - a helpful resource for prospective buyers in this area. I've provided the link to the "travel/transportation" page on their site for you.
