While this thread has already been bumped, does anyone have any recommendations on things to do/places to go for GDC week? This is for a group of people that have never been to SF before.

So people work 10 minutes away in, say Mountain View and make a huge salary, but live in San Jose. While people in Mountain View also work in Mountain View. So really Mountain View is even more unaffordable, but the study doesn't take that into account because the income of those people who live in San Jose but work in Mountain View is considered Mountain View income

2 parking tickets in a week, month ago my wife gets a muni citation after being let on the bus when the clipper scanner wasn't working and you can damn sure guarantee they will get that money, but someone just stole my wife's wallet including $300 dollars and her greencard when we were on the 38 and you can be sure we'll never see that stuff again. Combine that with current politics and it's been a rough year so far.

After all of this my wife is really wanting to move back to Japan. Getting hard to defend the US everyday.

Hi Bay GAF.

I am taking a job in Mountain View and I could really use some advice about where to live. Ideally we would find a 2 bedroom apartment (or townhouse?) within a 20-25 minute drive.

I'm not sure if I should go south/east, i.e. toward Santa Clara or Campbell? Or the other direction (Palo Alto)?

Since we're not sure if my wife is going to find work soon, I don't think we could afford more than $2500/month maximum, and preferably closer to $2200 if possible.

Any suggestions would be great. I know I could consider the Caltrain and whatnot but we have free parking at work so it would be nice to drive straight to my building, if traffic isn't going to be a nightmare.

Thanks.

It's going to be VERY hard, if not near impossible, to find a 2BR place for less than $2500. That said, definitely look south as it will be cheaper. I really loved the Campbell area when I used to live in Los Gatos, but it can be pretty pricey. If you want a 2BR, be prepared for at least $3k.

Shiet.. I'm guessing to get low $2000s I'll need to step down to a 1BR then?

I had another aunt that used to live in Campbell. She said it was a really nice area. Is the commute from Campbell to Mountain View rough?

Thanks for the tips.

That's about right, yeah. There are places you can find a 2br for a number that's technically $2xxx but these days it's not gonna be common.

Probably looking at 45-60 minutes drive at commute hours.

I'd expect to pay around 3k for a fairly shabby 2BR, unfortunately. MV, PA, Los gatos, campbell, menlo park, etc, are all pretty pricey. Maybe check out RWC or sunnyvale. You can get closer to EPA if you're comfortable and the prices will come down a bit.

Hey all - I know people ask questions about cost of living in the Bay Area and this is another so I apologize. It just feels hard to predict the cost in the Bay Area and there are so many god damn neighborhoods.

I currently live in Vancouver BC Canada and I'm interviewing for a job in SF. It's kind of near Union Square in the Financial District.

Vancouver is damn expensive but mainly to own and rental prices are bad but not as bad as SF. Currently after CAD to USD conversion my rent in Vancouver is $2100 USD a month for 850 sq ft with 2 bedrooms in the heart of downtown. To buy this place, its about 1.5 million so you can see where the crazy prices are here in Vancouver if you choose to own. Obviously I won't find that great of a deal for rent there and I expect this job to pay more to compensate.

I don't have a car. I sold it before moving to Vancouver. I used to live in the US. I'm a US citizen. I use public transportation up here and mix a few car shares every once in a while if I need to rent something. Probably won't want to own a car in SF but not opposed to it as I do miss just being able to drive to places without having to figure out car shares.

Any suggestions on where to live? I would want a short walk or quick public transportation commute. I do own a dog (Boxer) and so he's a factor. I also heard west parts can be more cloudy and rainy each year than the eastern part of DT? Do most places come with parking DT? What type of pricing should I expect for a 1 bedroom around 700 sq ft downtown? Also I hear the Tenderloin is bad. Is it pretty terrible? Went around on Google Streetview and it isn't pretty for sure but wasn't sure if pockets of it are better or all is a no go. What is the typically salary someone should be making to live comfortably alone DT? I'm factoring after taxes that about 65-66% of my salary will be my take home (hoping this is right)


Thanks all. May have more questions later. <3

A 1-bedroom downtown will run you upwards of $3500 a month most likely. Almost none of them will come with parking, and most will not allow big dogs. the Tenderloin is not a great neighborhood but they are typically more dog-friendly.

Would be much easier to find a place west of downtown, from lower haight all the way out to the richmond or sunset, or further south towards daly city. in any of those cases you're looking at a bus/muni/bart commute though

If you're commuting by public transport in SF, you'll most likely rely on the subway (BART) than the bus. It's a very convenient public transport.

I have some friends who all make in the mid $100k and they live in Oakland (Jack London Square). They commute to work to SF using BART. They said it's pretty convenient.

wait what? i grew up in S.F. now living in East Oakland (coliseum) ...when i was living in S.F. i use to take the N Judah home everyday (31st ave and Kirkham) it fucking takes 40-1hr each day to get home not including some day they have switchback where they just drop you off random stop because they have too many trolley running ....from civic center, now living in Oakland i take Bart and it takes me 25min ...even with delays with BART i'm still home faster then taking Muni...

I live by Macarthur, I lived at Civic Center for a couple years. Taking the N can be a shitshow or it can be fine, or taking BART in can be like 25 minutes or an hour if there's a medical emergency at Embarcadero like there always is. and if you're taking the N you could also take the 7 (used to be 71). There are more options in SF than in Oakland at least

At least a few years ago Verizon was oversubscribed so you wouldn't get as good service as they said you would. ATT is the best here but I'm still on TMo on principle and for actual unlimited, free tethering, out of country data, etc. You will lose service in certain buildings and in bart tunnels though that you wouldn't with ATT.

Ah, I said SF but I guess I meant the south bay area. I will be working in Mountain View.

Redwood City resident here and you should consider renting a place here. Rent isn't as expensive as MV, Palo Alto, Campbell, etc and it's pretty much a straight shot down El Camino Real south to get to MV. Plus we have one of the best Mexican places in the Bay Area called El Grullense

Landlords here can basically be as restrictive as they'd like with tenant requirements/fees (within the law) because the market is so heavily skewed in their favor. As a prospective tenant, you basically have 0 leverage.

Finally got a place... Not really the one I wanted, but it is just 15-20 mins away from work. Moving over on the 1st. 🙈

It's a one bedroom. Rent is $1,850, but one month is free, so it's actually about $1,700 a month if I space it out. Decent price, since all the comparable places were at least $1,950.

Now I need to pack and prepare for that 7-hour drive.

Hi all,

This is an urgent and important message, so I'll keep it short. If you're in a hurry, please read and retweet this message.

If you have family or friends in northern or central California—please get in touch with them on Monday morning, or sooner. The seriousness of the potential flood that is inbound on Monday and Tuesday cannot be overstated.

I just got off the phone with a NWS meteorologist at the Sacramento office, Bill Rasch, and he said they are increasingly concerned about the potential for the incoming atmospheric river to cause substantial or even historic flooding with little immediate notice. They are urging people to prepare to evacuate with less than 15 minutes warning, and expecting flooding in places that haven't flooded in "many years." As far as the this sort of dire wording, they have tentative plans to "take it up a notch" tomorrow—this is the real deal, a situation that likely hasn't hit California in decades, or maybe much longer.

Wow yeah I heard that rather than the usual emergency notification of "flash flooding" (which doesn't always hit the whole Bay, but some parts are way more susceptible than others), there was a risk of "major flooding". This is pretty scary. I work pretty close to home, so it shouldn't be too bad to head back out. My areas usually irrigates pretty well, so I am lucky there, but my work itself is close to the actual bay, so depending on if that floods...

I sometimes forget that most businesses all along the bay itself, were once actual water. Them gold diggers trying to create more land! Building on top of once wetlands isn't always a good idea >_>

I'm moving to the Bay area from SoCal soon and thought I'd ask if people have suggestions for where to live.

I've accepted a job in the financial district, and so far it looks like the city is too expensive. The nicer areas of Berkeley and Oakland are also a little pricy, so my wife and I have been looking at towns farther away that have BART access.

We've totally fallen in love with Lafayette, it's more reasonably priced and is a really cool little town. Everyone is super friendly, there's easy access to groceries and restaurants, Walnut Creek is very close by and has a movie theater, more restaurants, and shopping, and the city looks to be about a half hour away by BART.

Just curious if there's any places we should check out. Everyone we know was really excited for us to see Alameda but we weren't impressed, it's more expensive than Lafayette and seems almost run down in comparison, obviously not a bad area but Lafayette is really charming with all the brick buildings and stuff. In comparison Alameda sort of just looks like everything could use a fresh coat paint (I will say the housing in Alameda is really cool, it's just the businesses on the main strip that didn't seem as nice).

Max we can spend on rent is about $3,000/ month, and we'd really like to get 2 bedrooms.

I'm such an idiot, I put all of my clothes in the laundry, then left my apartment to get lunch.....only to not realize how heavy it was raining. I still went to get it in a T-shirt and shorts and was soaking the whole way lmao.
