I'm a relentless optimizer and usually do tons of research before making decisions, but I am shuddering at the thought of wading through endless legal and sales verbiage on insurance sites, or even worse, of enduring verbal sales pitches from agents/brokers. Please help me short-cut through the tedium of getting this done. A few extra details inside. [more inside]
Any advice on getting a one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco? [more inside]
I have a job offer in San Francisco. I understand that renting there is more difficult than it's ever been. My requirements are: I want to be able to walk + bike + BART/Bus to work, which is around South Beach.
Other than that, I am cool with East Bay, South, whatever. I could swing $2500-ish a month, but that is an upper boundary.
Tell me about neighborhoods, tell me whether there exist "apartment headhunters" who could reliably do this for me, school me thoroughly.
Thank you in advance.

I live with 4 other people (all of whom happen to be very good friends) in a 5-bedroom house in San Francisco, the Mission district specifically. Our house was built in 1923 and is generally in disrepair. Our landlords have been dragging their feet in regards to fixing some issues with our house that are very serious, in our eyes. The breaking point for us is that currently we have no working stove. Special snowflake details inside! [more inside]

Advise a San Francisco renter? I've about 6 weeks left on my current lease, and just had a new roommate move in. Rather than tack him on to the remaining time, my landlord would like to scrap the previous lease and have us sign on for a year. I've a feeling my roommate would prefer that as well. I, however, don't wish to be committed that long. [more inside]
