I am not really sure what your question is after, San Francisco has a lot of people and not that many choices, many rentals get a lot of interest and only one party can rent.... I am not quite sure how they
can create more living space/homes without building up up and more up with earthquake safe construction, or expand home construction to the outskirts, which then will create commuting issues.

With all due respect, I think this is a foolish/ trick question. If you are above, is that supposed to make you feel less of a person and if it's lower, is it to make you feel good that you were able to move into a nicer area, but don't make as much?

What do you think Alison? I'd love you to share your answer.

Astrid Lacitis answered:
Yes, they have increased. Hard to pin a number down, however. And if you bought at the height of the market unless you have made some major improvements to your property you probably will not get your condo to appraise out.

May I suggest you contact the agent who helped you buy and get the most recent comps? I do that for my clients all the time. In addition, I usually meet the appraiser, discuss the comps. Reason for that is that I have usually seen the comps, can talk intelligently about their advantages, disadvantages compared to the property being appraised. The appraiser just sees numbers, selected photos on a page.

Hi Hannah,

I live in PacHeights. A property owner that I know owns a few garages in PacHeights. Give him a call: Jack Ghatan: 415-771-2261. He usually doesn't pick-up right away, so leave a message.

Also, Craigslist is likely the best venue to find a parking spot as well.

Good luck!

Hi Ann,
Parking can be tough in the evenings but is generally not bad in the morning and afternoon. Usually once you settle into your home, you find little tricks within a few blocks. If the property you're interested in doesn't have parking and you're not interested in street parking, you can find both public and private garages that rent spaces on a monthly basis. Check Craigslist for private parking availability and pricing. If you are considering buying in Nob Hill, I'd be happy to help you get started.

Hi David,

If your zip code in West Portal is 94116, then the nearest Safeway is located at 730 Taraval Street, and if your zip code is 94127 or 94132, then the nearest Safeway is located at 625 Monterey Boulevard.

Cece Blase answered:
The 6th Street corridor between Market and Howard is dense with single room occupancy hotels (SROs) and has a large transient population. Vagrancy and public drunkenness is a problem. The issues spill over to the adjacent blocks, so 7th Street is also affected.

That said, there are many with high hopes for the area. The future Twitter Headquarters on Market between 9th and 10th Streets will certainly have an impact and my friends and associates who live at the SOMA Grand Condominiums on Mission between 7th and 8th tell me new businesses and restaurants are dramatically changing their local streetscapes .

Kevin Ho answered:
Living on the MUNI line can always more off-putting than it really is. If you can get used to it, you'll be ahead of the curve because some folks may not even consider living near a MUNI line. From 11th and Kirkham, a block up from Judah, I can hear the N-Judah MUNI only if I listen for it with windows open or if it's the still of the night where it's otherwise quiet. The whir from UCSF air conditioners are more prevalent. Anyway, the N sounds like a woosh of air and, rarely, I may hear the car turn from Judah onto 9th, but that's rare.

Keep in mind they've been installing and replacing the rails themselves and I know it's much quieter than living two to three blocks away from a BART line. And last, I had a client who was interested in a home listed on Frederick Street where the backyard of the building was directly next to the line as it goes in and out of the tunnel over to the Duboce side of the hill. Surprisingly, it wasn't too loud nor was there any vibration when the car passed. Most people say they get used to it anyway. Hope that helps.

Depending on what you need it for the answer will vary... If it's for a home loan, that's one issue, if it's for your own curiosity that's another.

Let me know, only to happy to help.

San Jose; Lapidge; Linda; Harrison; Precita; Peralta; Banks... But see here, poster, you'll get a thousand opinions of what is "nice". For instance, I once called on a couple of families who may have been more comfortable living in Noe Valley, but they "loved" the sunny disposition of the Bay View. So, what turns you on? You do realize that any "pockets" in the Mission will still be either 1/2 or 1 block away from what might not appeal to you. But, you'll be the best judge of that. I listed a few streets familiar to me, however, I can also say that in most cases, these streets are a bear to park!!! (What area in the Mission isn't?). What are you looking for in a "good" neighborhood? ... more

Eric Wu answered:
I'm not sure if there is a standard, but the average rent in SF for a 1 bedroom is around $2k, with an average salary of around $100k. So I venture to say you could comfortably spend around $3,500 for a 1 bedroom, 1 bath in Potrero Hill. At that price point, you would be able to afford a relatively nice place in that neighborhood. ... more

Ryan Kraft answered:
In San Francisco, the walk score is an essential part to a homes value. So many people want the convenience of restaurants, transportation, shopping and in your case grocery stores. The addition of Whole Foods, a major successful market in that area on Ocean Blvd. will most likely bring in more people who would otherwise look in somewhere else. The addition will act as an anchor for the community to gather, a place to get GREAT food and support strong commerce. Let me know if I can give you a home evaluation or find some comps in the area. ... more
