    SF is a very expensive city to live. If you don't have a place to live before you get here, you may wish to reconsider.

    Where do you plan on working? Job already in the works? Will you be commuting?

    Finding a place for $500 a month is nearly impossible. It would be a room to rent with others. You need to consider your compatibility first and why type of people you hope to live with. Finding a place is very competitive and generally you need to interview with the existing tenants first.

    If you're hoping a plane and coming to SF in hopes of making a new life, get a round trip ticket. You'll probably need it. Just saying.

    + 1, I chuckled when I read this ! $500 a month? I'd say that's about enough to cover like a week of hotel stay and some cheap/moderate food expenses. I think you need to be more realistic and do some more research on San Francisco OP. If you have no money, in an expensive city like SF and expect to make it, be prepared to either do waiting table jobs or give up the booty to an older rich/sugar dude. Just saying, good luck.

    You need to be more specific with your question.

    THIS. What is it you're wanting to know exactly? Also, eb925 is right. Hopefully you have a job lined up already. If not, well, lets just say there is a lot of competition for everything. Housing is expensive and very competitive.

    Another thing, as a general rule July is not a hot summer month in SF. The area around the SF Bay is a micro climate very different from most of the rest of the northern hemisphere. Anyone used to warm summer evenings will feel cold at night, especially when the fog rolls in. You'll need to dress in layers. The past two Summers have been on the cool side, seldom getting to 80°F. The upside is it doesn't get particularly cold in the winter months although to those of us who are used to it, it *feels* cold.

    Good luck! icon_smile.gif

    But you guys are way off, 2 years ago when I tried to live there it seemed like 900 a month to share a house with 4 other poeple, with the living room turned into a room, was the norm.

    Well my rent is 350, if you get a roommate to share a big spacious living room i to make your rent cheap. It isn't all that bad as long as you make sure that your roommate knows that you live there and they are not welcome to stay anytime they want unless you want them to. If your looking for affordable housing that is dirt cheap then move to the mission area or the tenderlion. Those area are not all that bad as people make them out to be. Those area tend to be really lively at night so if your bored or hungry you will find something to do down there. If you actually want your own room and want to make it cheap, then move to Daly City and just commute via barts.

    Are you looking for gay to play or just things to do?
    If you're looking for things to do Fisherman's warf, definitely love the Castro, Balboa Park (take a compass and write down where you left your car), China Town (write down where you left your car, note the cross streets), Golden Gate Park, China Town across the Bay Bridge. Ride the trolly, go to the trolly museum.There's a lot to see and do. I love SF. Wish I could afford to live there.

    Seriously? Do you live in SF? The only way to find rent at $350 is to share a room (or a bed) or possibly live in the Tenderloin, Bayview, Hunter's Point or Western Addition. Sure there are some fringe areas of each of these that are safe however, for the most part, I would avoid living in these areas. I'm very familiar with the Tenderloin, it's not pretty!

    As Chainer indicated, more realistic is a room for rent at about $900 a month. That's with a shared common area, kitchen , bath and roommates. Not uncommon at all.

    You haven't priced the Castro recently have you? That's a very expensive area. All those gays making good incomes and no one to spend it on has increased the demand and the prices for places in the Castro...very expensive area.

    LOL "good incomes and no one to spend it on" seems to capture not only the Castro, but much of gay America.

    Yep, pretty much and business know that! Str8 America hates it because they're spending their money on kids instead of cruises everywhere! LOL
