Thanks for the responses so far. Just to be clear,1) we are not looking for a mortgage as we already have a lender lined up2) we are looking in San Francisco proper (like pac heights, panhandle, cow hollow, etc and slightly outside these areas like bernal heights and noe valley)Thanks!
We are moving to San Francisco by the end of the year and are looking for a home to either buy or rent. Looking for at least 2 bed / 1.5 bath, but preferably 3bed / 2 bath.We've been doing research on the various areas, but do not have a strong preference for now. Prefer an easy and short cummute to downtown, and a place that is suitable for a young family.Budget-wise we would prefer to stay under 800k if buying or 3.5k/month if renting. We are not yet working with any realtor.Also open to duplexes or triplexes to live in one and rent out the rest, and very open to fixer-uppers as long as it is a good value.All suggestions welcome!Thanks
