You'd hope the answer was straight-forward, but because we live in such a special place, there are all kinds of special cases that will change the answer, which is it depends on a building's age (pre-1979?) and legal definition (condo, house, TIC?) and the tenant's characteristics (older, younger, school-aged children, disabled?)

In many cases, if a tenant has been in a location for more than a year, they most likely must be offered certain statutory-defined minimum relocation fees/assistance (about $5400 per tenant, plus certain add-ons for older tenants or extended family members); if there are school children involved, owner-move-in evictions can only take place in the summer. While you can do an owner move-in eviction unless the tenants there qualify for "protected status" in which case you can't.

There are a lot more variations that come into play too. For more contact me or check out Bornstein and Bornstein website or that of the SF Tenant's Union.

I was born and raised in the bayview and would never return because of the crime in that area. If you have a choice look elsewhere. The Baybiew used to be a great place to live, the weather is ideal - in fact it is the best weather in SF. ... more

The crime is the biggest turn off. People can say how great the area is, but in reality you don't see tour buses roaming the area and if you drive in that area by mistake you'd better drive fast. in order to get out of the area. ... more

I have listed and sold several properties in and around the Bayview and Visitation Valley and there is much to be said about improving a house for selling purposes. However, please be mindful of one thing with the current state of affairs in the market, a buyer will be willing to pay for a house what they see as a competitive price, and whether it is improved or not will affect that perception. An improved house, if it is done right and to the broad tastes of those would-be buyers, will garner a higher price by default. However, when you're competing with lower priced homes (due to foreclosure, or other issues), you may not get a substantially higher price than the market will bear. A FREE market analysis is a good place to start. I can do that. After that, we would discuss a best-case scenario strategy and finally a pricing strategy to get the property sold. I'll be more than happy to help with each aspect with no obligation. ... more

There is no link showing exactly what property is of interest; you may want to ask again with the link so that your question may be answered accordingly.

Hi Rainbow,

The best way to get information like this is to call the local Police Department and talk with them. They are usually filled with good information. It's on Williams, I believe. ... more
