The good news is that we found an adorable 2-bedroom with 1-car garage parking on Dolores in a prime location of the Mission. I consider it prime property in San Francisco. The landlord loved me with my promptness in responding to his emails and offering, “here is my cell phone just in case, but I am always on time.”
He also gave a big grin when Dean added, “I’m sure all those built-in bookshelves will be filled, all this girl does is read.”
“Music to my ears,” he grinned.
The bad news is I cannot find anyone to rent out my condo so I can move in with my boyfriend. I’m charging $2,000 and there has been only one person who emailed me—someone from abroad. I have a gorgeous 1-bedroom with hardwood floors, washer/dryer, and garage parking. I’m smack in the middle of the city with busses zipping in all directions to take you wherever you need to go. But I can’t get rid of it.
My predicament is just a small glimpse into the lives of other people who are having serious problems. Like getting laid off and not having enough money to pay rent. Or homebuilders who can’t find anyone to buy so they’re settling for renters. Renters who have their pick. I wish I could be a renter now! Or owning a home, but getting transferred because of your job. What happens?
Let the markets turn soon.
