SF Housing FT 2015 Analyst Class

Hi guys,

I'll be moving to San Francisco in late-July/early-August for a full-time analyst role and am interested in hearing the opinions of current/former analysts on where to look for housing. I know there are some threads already on subletting for the summer, however, I'm looking for a minimum 1 yr lease. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

P.S. also interested in finding a roommate(s) to split a place if possible. PM me if interested.

What's your price range? I'm from the Bay Area, so I might be able to give you some ideas.

Don't bring a car to SF. Parking anywhere near downtown is insane and expensive. As far as neighborhoods near downtown: Russian Hill, SoMa, and North Beach are the nicest, and you could definitely find a sublet for less than $1800. Studios would run you much more than that though. If you're looking for a studio, Lower Nob Hill/the Tenderloin/Civic Center has plenty under $1800, but it's also one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the city.

I'll also be moving to SF for FT in the same date range and am also interested in any input and advice. I'm hoping to find a 4BR place to share with 3 college friends (non-finance) with a rough price range of ~1500-1800 per person.
