SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – It’s no secret that San Francisco is home to some of the prices real estate in America, but closer look at what’s out there shows that you can now spend more than a quarter of a million a year just renting a home for your family.
The blog Curbed tracked down and mapped the city’s ten most expensive rental listings; all of them were asking at least $14,500 a month in rent – that’s $175 thousand a year, folks.READ MORE: 49ers Win Wild Card 23-17 as Time Runs Out for Cowboys in Frantic Finish
The most expensive place per-bedroom was a three bedroom unit at the Ritz-Carlton. The 1,960 square foot unit is listed for $18,000 a month on Craigslist, right there next to your average Outer Sunset room share situation. If you need a little more space, why not splurge on one of three 6-bedroom pads listed (also on Craigslist) for between $22,000 and $25,000 a month ($264,000 to – mind exploding- $300,000 a year) to sleep in a place you don’t own.
As you might expect, all of the homes on the list are tastefully done, they had better be for about four times the median household income in the city. The secret sauce that puts the number one listing over the top: “features 4-5 car parking.” That’s enough for an entire Google bus.
