Top Reasons to Live in San Francisco CA

Housing Statistics San Francisco is a hugely popular city in the USA, and consequently, its housing prices are much higher than you might find in other smaller neighborhoods and towns outside of the major hubs. Those with greater financial restrictions might want to consider rent to own homes, of which there are many in the area. On average, houses currently sell at an average of $1,490,226, with median prices at $851,000, based on monthly sale transactions of 1,221, although these figures will change a little bit each month. Median turnover rates for houses in the area were estimated to be just under $70,000 in 2011, with rental averages of just under $2,000 per month, second only to New York in the most expensive areas to rent in the USA.

Outdoor Activities San Francisco might boast the most beautifully natural setting of all of the major cities in the U.S., making it a great city to explore for outdoor enthusiasts. The Bay Area provides a host of thrills, from surfing on the same waves that Kelly Slater once enjoyed, to sailing on the same waters as the America's Cup competition. From the water, you can also get out and explore the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the city's most iconic landmarks, as well as the prison on Alcatraz Island. If you wish, you can even venture slightly farther out of the city to find a secluded beach for a spot of swimming or to simply relax under the sun with a picnic. If you'd rather be more active, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area provides a massive playground to explore, comprising beautiful untouched forests, peaceful lookout points with amazing views, and a host of tracks and trails for hiking and biking. One of the great walks available is the Lands End Trail, a three mile trip that even a novice hiker can manage. It affords a magnificent view over the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay at the summit. There really is just so much to explore in the area, making it the perfect spot for outdoor lovers.

Weather and Climate Of course, to maximize these outdoor exploits, you'd hope to have some good weather, and San Francisco doesn't disappoint with mild winters and warm, dry summers. As the city is surrounded by water on three sides, it is greatly influenced by cool currents coming out of the Pacific, providing a climate that is mild throughout the year with little variation in temperature. The city is also known for its fog, created by rising hot air that draws the winds into the Bay. In addition, due to the variations in the city's topography, characterized by its rolling hills, San Francisco also exhibits several different micro-climates, with the high hills responsible for a 20 percent variance in rain in certain areas, and the eastern side enjoying more sun and warmer temperatures over the course of the year. On average, temperatures only get up above 74 degrees for 29 days out of the year, with May to October offering the mildest and driest weather conditions for those who want to enjoy their outdoor pursuits.

Neighborhood Guide San Francisco has a host of larger, well known neighborhoods, along with much smaller communities and developments. In general, there are 5 major districts: Downtown/Central, Richmond, Sunset, Upper Market, and Bernal Heights/Bayview.
