Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1775 Studio in Pac Heights

Your motto is, "Let's keep things open". You don't like to commit, whether it be to a pile of furniture or a landlord, and long-term leases make you to break out in hives. Yet everywhere you turn people are asking for a mimimum of one year devoted to an abode. What's a commitment-phobe to do? Forget those lengthy leases and opt for this week's Craigslist Deal instead.

Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1150 Hayes Studio

You've done the roommate thing for far too long. All told you've been shacking up with others for almost the entirety of your twenties, and while the situation has had its perks (lower rent; easily accessible friends; possible love interests) it also has had its pitfalls (other people's sex noise; no alone time; ill-fated love interests). Needless to say, you're ready for a change. But other than moving to the East Bay or holing up in a flophouse on Market, you'll be hard-pressed to find even a studio in the city for around what you're used to paying. Lucky for you, this week's Craigslist Deal has you covered.

Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1595 Studio in Russian Hill

All hail the glorious sun! This past weekend's phenomenal weather made me want to worship that giant star much like the Aztecs, thanks to its spirit-lifting (and pasty leg-annhilating) powers. Even on typical city days where you'll only find a bit of sol peeking through a thick sheet of fog, I'll take what I can get. But that's easier said than done here where railroad-style apartments are in abundance and many units offer just one lone window at the end of a long corridor, providing more of a reminder of sun, rather than actually delivering any. I'm thankful then that there are places like this week's Craigslist deal to be had.

Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1595 NoPa Jr 1 Bdrm

Sometimes I just can't be bothered with moving outside of a 5 block radius from my home–and by "sometimes" I mean pretty much all of the time. I like to blame it on MUNI's hatefulness (a great defense as you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn't concur), but really it's just that my current 'hood has all it takes to keep me happy, and moving my bum for anything more sounds like effort better put towards Jenga championships, Mad Men marathons, and other matters of great import.

Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1595 Inner Richmond 1Bdrm

While I've been dying to get a dog for years, a part of me feels like city pups get the short end of the (fetching) stick. Being stuck in an apartment for most of the day then let out only to walk around a concrete jungle trying to find the tiniest swatch of green to pee on–it just doesn't seem too fair. But the location of this week's pet-friendly Craigslist Deal could make me change my tune.

Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1825 Russian Hill Studio

Who hasn't daydreamed of escaping to Paris? You'd spend your days strolling the cobbled streets, stopping here and there for a croissant or a romantic tête à tête, then return in the evening to your grand, crumbling old flat over the Rue de Something-or-other for a bottle of wine. Well if you've yet to accrue enough frequent flyer miles to start living the Rive Gauche life, we might have the next best thing. This week's Craigslist deal has all the trappings of that Parisian flat of your dreams-minus the crumbling part, as luck would have it.

Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1750 Nob Hill 1 Bdrm

Living within walking distance of work is a dream for many, but with rent prices in our City's center continuously climbing skywards, it can be a hard one to realize. Yet with a lot of luck and many hours spent searching, you might be able to score discount digs downtown. That, or you can just check out this week's Craigslist deal.

Craigslist Deal of the Week: $890 Furnished 1 Bdrm in Noe

First apartments can be daunting. When I first moved to San Francisco it was with little more than a few pots and pans and a sheet set to my name. My first place in town consisted of a mattress on the ground (sans box spring), a chair, and a desk–and it stayed that way for longer than I care to admit. Yes, with so much to see and do in a new city, setting up your home in a timely fashion can feel overwhelming. Lucky for you, this week's fully-furnished Craigslist Deal will take care of all that pesky decorating, and at under $900, no less.

Craigslist Deal of the Week: $1550 Sunset 1 Bdrm

Living near inexpensive food options is crucial for workaholics, the cooking-challenged... pretty much everyone who needs a break from the kitchen from time to time. This week's Craigslist deal is located smack in the middle of cheap food central - and best of all, it's all really fricking good. At 20th and Irving, you're on the same block as one of the best pho places in the city (that's PPQ, if you're wondering) and within blocks of both Marnee Thai locations; Arizmendi is a short walk, as are crave-worthy burritos (Gordo's), hangover-curing greasy spoons (Art's), and legendary chicken wings (San Tung).
