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.
Located at Franklin and Hayes, this studio is close to both Van Ness and Hayes Valley; the former keeps the price low, while the latter makes for quite a steal. You're only about a block from neighborhood gems like Absinthe, the Blue Bottle kiosk, Sebo, and much more. And not to worry on the size; usually a place this cheap would look like a closet, but this is 500 m-f-in' square feet! That's probably bigger than your share of a place with roommates, anyhow. So take a leap, ditch the roomies, and take on SF solo like a boss. Sunny Studio Apartment
