The San Francisco housing search is on

28 June 2009

When we arrived back to the San Francisco bay area in mid-January we lived in a Summerfield suites in Belmont for a month while we looked for a short-term rental and jobs.

We found a great furnished/view apartment in San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood, signed a 6-month lease, and then focused on the job search.

Well, now it’s June. We’re both gainfully employed again and our lease ends next month, so we’re now on the hunt for a longer-term place. Since Robin and I are both working in the City and we like the SOMA neighborhood, we’ll focus on this area. There are lots of new condos and apartments available here and after living on a boat for 7 years, even a 1200 sq ft apartment seems spacious!

We’re hoping find a place soon and get more permanently settled. It may be a good time to buy, so we’re considering that option as well. We’ll keep you posted.
