A few days ago, we received an email from a potential Lower Haight resident in need of help finding an apartment, and it got us thinking.
“My boyfriend and I are moving to SF and have honed in on the lower haight and Duboce Park as the ideal neighborhoods – the problem is – I can’t seem to find a local real estate person there who could help us with a rental… do you have any recommendations?”
Having recently attempted (and abandoned) a hunt for a new apartment in the neighborhood ourselves, we realize how frustrating a process it can be. Craigslist is a nightmare, open houses are cutthroat, and prices are increasingly ridiculous.
So we thought we’d open the discussion up to you, our readers. How did you get lucky enough to find your abode in the Lower Haight? Any tips for our aspiring new neighbor?
