John Street is technically in Nob Hill, but it is on the border of Nob Hill and Chinatown where it feels more like Chinatown than Nob Hill. http://g.co/maps/3crce

The parking in the Inner Richmond is relatively easy compared to other parts of the city, with Russian Hill, Pacific Heights, Nob Hill and the Marina being the most difficult.

For residents of inner richmond, the street parking is first come, first serve. However, the downside is that there is street cleaning where you have to move your car during those times.

From the sfmta website: In general, business streets are swept four times per week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays) on one side of the street and three times per week on the other side (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays). They are swept between 6am and 8am. Additionally, sections of some business streets are swept seven days per week on both sides of the street between midnight and 6am. They include: (1) Embarcadero; (2) Mission Street; (3) Market Street; (4) North of Market; (5) Third Street; (6) Chinatown/North Beach; (7) Sixth Street; and (8) Van Ness/South Van Ness.

More information on street cleaning and exact days here: http://www.sfdpw.org/index.aspx?page=323

There is permit street parking available near inner richmond for residents, which would fall under the N permit, which will cost you $100 a month.

Map of the zone: http://www.sfmta.com/cms/pperm/documents/rpp_8.5x11_webform.pdf

Application for the permit:http://www.sfmta.com/cms/pperm/documents/PermitApplicationEf…

There are large sections of metered only parking along the major streets, such as Geary and Balboa, but there are limited to an hour max during working hours and Saturdays.

Are home prices in Westwood Highlands going to appreciate or depreciate? What are the current market conditions for buying or renting?

A little gray for my liking. Bedrooms run around $1,000-$1,500 each - so get ready to pay. Commuting from here is difficult--and the hills mean biking is also treacherous!

Having lived in and around the West Portal neighborhood I can't say there are any huge drawbacks, but if I had to pick one or two I would have to go with weather and parking. Since WP is west of twin peaks the area sees a lot more fog throughout the year. Parking can be a little tough as well, especially on West Portal itself and the one or two blocks around the main strip. Other than that I would say I have enjoyed living and working in this neighborhood for many years. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with. Take care.

West Portal is one of the nicest neighborhoods in San Francisco and the market conditions currently are high demand and low supply. That being said in general the areas home values are increasing over the long run and location location location apply to West Portal. There are many fun things to do in the area including restaurants, movie theaters, cafes, shopping, parks. One of the main Muni Stations is also here which connects the neighborhood quickly to the rest of San Francisco.

If you have any questions or would like to buy or sell a home in West Portal please call me anytime.

Thank you,
