CCA Is a great school! I have some friends who took classes there.

Looks like the property you linked to isn't available anymore, but if there's anything I can do to help let me know!

You may call or visit the web site for SF City / County Tax records office to find out about owner info. I recently came across a rental and I was suspicious about the posting as the "manager" of the "independent landlord" sent me an agreement with signatures (!) and asked for money to be deposited for 1 month plus deposit into a credit union account. I found out that the owner was per tax records was very different from the so called, self styled, "independent landlord" ... ... more

Scams are everywhere - they are a huge problem on craigslist. Never send money - meet at the property with the person advertising the property. If they have some excuse why they can't meet you (they are in Africa on missionary work as an example) you can bet it's a scam. ... more

Are you talking about the rental or purchase of 565 Geary? The last time the building was sold was back in 1999. However, the commercial portion of 565 was recently on the market, and was withdrawn back in April of this year. As of right now the building does not appear for sale.

I hope this helps! ! If you or anyone else has any questions regarding real estate please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m always happy to be a trusted resource for all things real estate in San Francisco and the Bay Area.

All the best,

Small suites are hard to find. Most tenants looking for one office succumb to subleases or executive suites. There is some availability in Jackson Square and on Market Street at $40.00 a square foot per annum: $1,000 per month.

Rats... Ewww... Please read the lease regarding pests and how the landlord will handle such creatures. If their isn't a section that mentions vermin then you will definitely want to get out of the unit. I think a damaged couch is the least of your worries.

Have a great day;

It basically means that the banks suspend the foreclosure proceedings. It's good for the homeowner who are facing foreclosure due to financial difficulties, at least they will get a chance to work with the bank for any alternatives like loan modification or short sale to avoid foreclosure from their credit.

It will also help the housing market to recover quickly and the house value will also be higher. Foreclosed properties are sold less than the other type of properties and bank also lose more money with the foreclosure proceedings. Overall, I would say the housing market will improve with less and less foreclosed properties on the market, which is already happening in this market.

This is the dirtiest, dingiest, most depressing part of town to walk through during the day and becomes somewhat dangerous after dark. The streets are littered and there are strung out people. The houses are mostly large, old apartment buildings that have a sad air of once having been glamorous. The people you are most likely to meet on the street are drug dealers, prostitutes and johns who will likely hit you up for something. People rarely WANT to live here. Period. ... more

This is probably the least expensive part of town, and whatever your budget may be, you won't strain it too much living here. It is a good place to live without a car because it is very close to all sorts of public transportation. There are also lots of hidden gems of restaurants, clubs and bars in all sorts of price ranges. If you're into dive bars, this is heaven for you. Also, if you're not planning on using your kitchen for cooking, this is a great part of town because there are tons of cheap eats open till the wee hours of the morning. If you do have a car, although parking is not easy, it's not as impossible as in some other areas. ... more
