It's no longer true that if you get priced out of San Francisco you can just move east as we learned last week, rents in Oakland are actually shooting up much faster than they are in San Francisco right now, probably due to that very eastward migration. And now we have this new map put together by RadPad that shows us just how high rents are across the portion of the Bay Area that's serviced by BART.
So, this represents a picture of what's called "transit-oriented housing," and a snapshot of overall median rental prices, via a survey of 17,000 one-bedroom apartment listings within a half-mile radius of a BART station. Now, in San Francisco, this is probably going to show some confusing overlap Montgomery, Powell, and Civic Center Stations are all within a half-mile of SoMa, and Hayes Valley is probably reflected in Civic Center as well. And Curbed notes that the extremely low Glen Park figure is factoring in Excelsior rents (since you're not going to find many one-bedrooms in Glen Park anyway). But here we see a more complicated picture that mostly supports the finding of last month that the median price of a one-bedroom in SF had now gone north of $3,200.
But seriously, who would pay $2,000 to live in Dublin? $2,300 to live in Colma? Dear god.
