Overview of San Francisco

If you're in need of a studio apartment in San Francisco, you'll find a variety of them, as "San Francisco is a little bit of everything," according to the city's travel association. The population of this small metropolis barely exceeds 850,000. Yet the quantity and diversity of things to do belong in urban locales that are far larger. Great Eastern Restaurant, for example, offers dumplings, buns and dim sum specialties. At the reservation-only San Francisco Champagne Society, you can indulge in your favorite kinds of bubbly accompanied by light bites. For headline acts, The Fillmore boasts a 1,000-seat theater decorated with original art.

Once you've discovered studio apartments in San Francisco through the easy and fun Rent.com, you can visit them without bringing your car. Streetcars can get you almost anywhere with the F-line highlighting your journey in colorful historic vehicles. The iconic cable cars make short work of the city's hilly terrain. For longer trips, such as to Oakland or Fremont, BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) can take you there quickly and in futuristic comfort.

Searching for Studio Apartments in San Francisco

A studio apartment provides an excellent entry into one of the hottest "for rent" markets in California. Typical prices range from $2,200 to $2,500 a month. The compact size and relatively lower cost of a studio make it perfect for those in search of their first rental. It also works for singles or couples looking for a no-fuss lifestyle. Studio apartments can provide ideal housing to college students looking to save money by going with a full one bedroom apartment and who desire a cozy retreat and study. Because everything is in one room, everything remains within easy reach. The smaller space is also easier to decorate with fewer pieces of furniture and accessories. If you're trying to decide whether a studio or one-bedroom rental is better for you, check out this Rent.com blog post that points out a number of advantages and disadvantages to both apartment types and raises key questions about what you value in your abode.
