Someone in S.F. Wants You to Pay $1075 a Month to Sleep on Their Couch


San Francisco, you have officially lost your goddamned mind.

There is a person on Craigslist in S.F. who wants you to rent a couch in their 600 square foot studio apartment for $1075 a month. Yes, this is really happening.

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 definately 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 )
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/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 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.
Thank you.

So many questions:



3. Why not just put a twin bed in the walk-in closet and rent that? I mean, that’s what we used to do, but it cost like $500 a month. And, yes, that was in San Francisco, in a better location than on Market at Laguna, and just three years ago.

4. Thanks a lot, Facebook and Google. I’d love to move back to my hometown, but I’m pretty sure they shoot poor people now. Or burn us for warmth. Or just for fun. USA!
