Tiny home with deck: Guess how much this rents for in San Francisco
It’s no secret that Bay Area living is expensive, so much so that many people are leaving or coming up with some very creative solutions. If you’ve ever searched for a new apartment online, you’ve undoubtedly come across a place where the images make your jaw drop at the photos and price — and NOT in a good way. Welcome to the new series we’re calling, “Guess how much this rents for in San Francisco.” We estimate this series will go on for, well, forever, because there are no signs the bubble will burst.
Owning a suburban house with a white picket fence has long been a symbol of the American dream. Now, you can achieve that dream in San Francisco ... kind of.
This "tiny home/inlaw/studio cottage across Golden Gate Park" in the Richmond is for rent.
The space includes a detached kitchen, hardwood floors and "beautiful modern finishes."
It also includes a full bathroom that looks modern and perhaps recently completed.
The post shows that laundry is onsite.
The house also has a small front patio and looks large enough to fit a few chairs.
And this one goes for ... drumroll ... $1,600 a month! But, utilities are an all-inclusive additional $100 per month, so it's really $1,700 a month.
In 2018, Zumper reported the median rent of a studio in San Francisco at $2,538, but, you can't put a price on the American dream?
