Overview of San Francisco

The metropolitan city of San Francisco holds much history while simultaneously embracing the future, making it an enticing option for renters in search of one-bedroom apartments. This thriving California city treasures its historical buildings and landmarks, which often reside next to brand-new buildings. Residents and visitors alike also love the culinary landscape, as the city houses hundreds of top-notch and cutting edge restaurants. Tourists from around the world visit San Francisco's many attractions, such as the infamous Alcatraz Island. Perched atop a series of hills with ocean views, crisscrossed with cable car tracks and bike lanes and dotted with dozens of parks, including the famous Golden Gate Park, the city is formed by dozens of neighborhoods, each with its own particular look and feel. The Haight district tends to express a more laid-back and open nature, while Pacific Heights and its mansions are more reserved. When exploring one-bedroom apartments for rent, you have many factors to consider, and Rent.com helps you navigate the many neighborhoods and housing options available in San Francisco.

Searching for One-Bedroom Apartments in San Francisco

Though penthouse and one-bedroom apartments located in a prestigious building or prime location can cost more than $10,000 per month in rent, the typical monthly rent is more likely to range between $2,900 and $3,200. Of course, the rent depends on the unit itself as well as its location. Dozens of neighborhoods make up the city of San Francisco, each with its own rental market. Find high-end and high-rise apartments along the San Francisco Bay, like South Beach and Russian Hill. More affordable options can be found in the city's southern areas, like Excelsior and Bayview, or the western sections near the Pacific Ocean, like the Outer Sunset. As this Rent.com blog post points out, the city has become a tech mecca, so you'll find many one-bedroom apartments clustered around the burgeoning tech companies and startups that co-exist with the city's theater and arts districts and centers of nightlife, especially in South of Market, or SOMA.

Typical Layout for One-Bedroom Apartments in San Francisco

One-bedroom apartments come in all shapes and sizes, but a typical apartment is approximately 450 to 800 square feet. Particularly in the SOMA district, live/work spaces and lofts are popular layouts that provide a more spacious feel. San Francisco's iconic townhouses usually offer a more railroad style of layout that is long and narrow. Newer buildings typically provide a standard floor plan.
