UPDATE: She just knocked down the price to a rock-bottom $915/month.
In the esteemed words of Laura Beck, "San Francisco, you have officially lost your goddamned mind." A person posted this Craigslist ad seeking someone to sleep on their couch for $1075 a month in Hayes Valley.
You are required to put down $1,500 and bring our own SLEEPING BAG.
The ad reads as follows:
I'm looking for a responsible, friendly person who is looking to SHARE A STUDIO. Please read carefully as this is an open space kind of place so you do not have your own bedroom. However, you'll have a lot of space as the place is huge and I'm away most of the time ! The upside is definitely the location: my place is close to everything -walking distance to the Mission, the Lower Haight, Castro, Hayes valley. Going downtown is direct and right at the door. (very cute view of the cable car from the apartment and overall an amazing skyline view of the city). [Ed. note: That's a streetcar, not a cable car, you're seeing outside your window.] I'm a busy woman in my late 20s working in a start up, so I prefer a woman as I am one and because of the living set up.
Bring your own slipping bag [sic]/or sleep on my super comfy couch, sized just like a single bed. I also have the "perfect eat in kitchen " if you like to cook.
You'll get your own walking [sic] closet. The studio has hardwood floor, bathtub, a lot of natural light. There is a washer/dryer in the building.
I'm looking for someone who is easy to get along with, responsible and enjoy a peaceful and clean environment.
I think this could be the perfect place and situation for someone new to the city who wants to get familiar with San Francisco while finding a place to call home and does not want to deal with the cheap and dirty or clean and expensive hotels...
I'm flexibe on dates : mid october trough november would be ideal or something like that. Rent includes utilities. Require a $1500 refundable deposit.
Let me know about yourself and leave a number where I can reach you.
This "perfect place and situation" is where we are at now, San Francisco.
