Rent controlled apartments in SF?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Does this even still exist? How does it work...you gotta find someone moving out and take over their lease?

I'm moving up there in a few months for work and am trying to figure out a living situation. I'll likely end up just trying to gather 2 other random people off CL and get a 3 bedroom place at one of those nicer, new apartment complexes. Should keep the rent under $1,600 a person. Down for Oakland too (downtown/ridge something, nice areas) maybe.

They do exist. But it's tough to get an apt with rent control, simply due to the fact tenants rarely leave. Knowing rent in SF is staying the same, I wouldn't leave either...Unless I needed to leave.

 

You should check out Oakland/Emeryville too...Alot of places are coming up.

been living at my place near downtown for yrs. my rent and along with one of my neighbors is a fraction of what the tenants pay. laugh.gif
my landlord could easily sell the place or try to kick me out, but she's so stacked that i dont think she even bothers

Okay so here my deal, I'm from Sac and I really want to relocate to the Bay Area after I graduate, preferably the SF/Berkeley/Emeryville area, ideally I'd want a 1 bed room joint for myself. What would be the best course of action to find something like this at a reasonable price? Or is that not possible?

depends on what you consider reasonable. The best thing you can do is look at pricing in the different neighborhoods and figure what will fit your budget, then just be diligent about keeping up with listing until you find something you like

I think the best would be to try to move into a house. I'v been living in a house for over 2 years in Sunset with a few friends and the landlord has not increased the rent at all.
