What's the best non-craigslist method for finding an apartment in San Francisco?

Asked by jballou (2113points) June 26th, 2008

Specifically in the Hayes Valley area. It has to be 1 bedroom, and under $2000 in rent… Help?

If money is less important than time, you could try hiring an agent to find places to show you.

You could also use this site. Seems like it has a lot of options.

ride your bike around and write down numbers you see in the window. pick up neighborhood newspapers. ask your friends who already live in the neighborhood for their landlord’s # to find out if they have any other properties.

Visit the neighborhoods you’re interested in and look for ‘room available’ signs.

Are you religious? Pray.

Update: Craigslist came through, as usual. Got an apartment exactly where I wanted for the exact rent I wanted to pay

Oh Oh I got the best site! Check it out http://www.housingmaps.com/ What CraigsList would be doing if it weren’t for the incredible amount of weed they smoke over there.
