Renting an apartment in San Francisco is no easy task. When you add finding a rental that accepts both you and Fido, it may feel like a hopeless situation. San Francisco suffers from a competitive rental market paired with low inventory, meaning landlords are in a position to set the rules, and many are against your furry friend.
Are you a new grad or young professional seeking a fresh start?

The Bay Area is attracting a wealth of talent from all over the world, and many newcomers to the City-by-the-Bay have one question in mind: “Where is the best place in San Francisco to call home?” Whether you were just handed a great job offer, or are moving in to identify new prospects, we’ve got the inside scoop on the best neighborhoods the city has to offer.
The Tenderloin District—the name alone can be polarizing. For some, it’s the area in The City to just avoid. To the people who live here (and the many visitors), it’s authentic San Francisco.

The month of May is the launch of “summer” in San Francisco, even though it doesn’t feel any warmer or colder in the city. What makes May a great time to be in San Francisco is that it kicks off the street festivals in the city, Cinco de Mayo, Bay to Breakers, Memorial Day, and more.
With so many amazing San Francisco events in May, it’s safe to say your social calendar will be full this month.
Tax Day has come and gone this year. For some, you’re probably down about the large donation you just gave to the American government. All the rest are patiently waiting for their annual bonus from Uncle Sam, also known as a tax refund.
If you are part of the latter group, you have a big decision coming up soon: how will you spend your tax refund? Do you book a trip? Do you buy a new car? The sensible ones will put the money from their tax refund into a savings account, but there’s no fun in that. You’ve earned the right splurge a little, especially after enduring all the rainy days we’ve had these past months in San Francisco.
