Your Questions About Luxury Apartments San Francisco

June 3, 2012

Donna asks…

Best place to live in San Francisco?

I am moving to San Francisco and I am really not sure where and which apartment I will be living in. I have been searching for a long time and came up with a few that are somewhat good but still some reviews from apartment rating sites say otherwise. From what I have read I think the safest neighborhoods are presidio, richmond and sunset (I think inner and outer), soma, mission area, market street, nob hill, and telegraph hill. (correct me if im wrong)

I really want a good luxury studio or 1 bedroom apartment in a safe and clean neighborhood, within 20 min of University of San Francisco, between $1000-$1600 a month, has security, and possibly does not have thin walls (so I wouldn’t have to listen to other peoples music, conversations, or footsteps).

Please respond if you are a resident of San Francisco, have been living there for a few years, or at least know the area very well. Thank you.

Administrator answers:

I don’t think SOMA, Market St., or the Mission would appear on anybody’s ist of the safest SF neighborhoods. And the Sunset has certainly seen its share of gang violence.

What do you mean by “has security”? If you mean doorman or security guard, it’s out of your price range.

Regardless, the apartment you are envisioning is out of your price range.

Robert asks…

Is high-density housing in the neighborhood a plus or a minus?

I am considering buying a home in a suburb of San Francisco. Right now, a few miles away from the house are a K-Mart and a large fairgrounds-type area. The fairgrounds-type area is scheduled to be torn down, and replaced with about 500 new luxury-condos and townhouses. A developer is proposing to do the same with the K-Mart.

The homeowners in the area seem to think that this is a bad thing, because it will increase the population density of the area, leading to greater traffic congestion.

But it seems to me that it would be a good thing, since the “character” of the neighborhood will improve with condos and townhouses rather than a K-Mart and fairgrounds-type area. Since people have to buy the condos/townhouses, there will be some pride of ownership, rather than a transient population, as would be the case if the high-density housing consisted of apartment complexes instead.

Am I missing something?

I would REALLY appreciate some input on this.

Thanks!!!
By the way, the house that I’m looking at is a single family home. I don’t think that the property value would plummet, since a future buyer of my home would be in a different market than those looking at condos and townhouses. Is this correct?

Administrator answers:

I think its a good deal..your house will gain value over apartments. I would go down town to check the type and value of these apartments and this will determine the type of people that will live in this area.

Laura asks…

Help what would you in this case people?

I’m 18, and i’m tired of living with my parents so i’m moving out. I also miss my old city back in san francisco.

What would you do?

1. Rent your own apartment just a regular studio $1250?

or

2. Rent a room and share a luxury condo with a roommate in downtown sf with great views (pool, jacuzzi, gym, home theater and security 24/7) $1500?

Administrator answers:

First option. I don’t want roommates, and I wouldn’t have much use for the luxuries in the second one.

Betty asks…

Is this why Democrats have to raise taxes?

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who promised a new era of ethics enforcement in the House of Representatives, snuck a $25 million gift to her husband, Paul Pelosi, in a $15 billion Water Resources Development Act recently passed by Congress. The pet project involved renovating ports in Speaker Pelosi’s home base of San Francisco. Pelosi just happens to own apartment buildings near the areas targeted for improvement, and will almost certainly experience a significant boost in property value as a result of Pelosi’s earmark. Earlier in the year, Pelosi found herself in hot water for demanding access to a luxury Air Force jet to ferry the Speaker and her entourage back and forth from San Francisco non-stop, in unprecedented request which was wisely rejected by the Pentagon. And under Pelosi’s leadership, the House ethics process remains essentially shut down – which protects members in both parties from accountability.
ILMAO leave it to the Liberals to spin this ! Bush is NOT responsable for Liberal stupidity!!!

Administrator answers:

I’m LMAO too, at all the fools who thought Democrats would clean up corruption when they’re the ones who INVENTED it in this country!

And she wants to clean up the private sector, please!
