5. SF Marathon
Dates: July 30th-31st, 2016
Average one-bedroom nightly rate: $344
The San Francisco Marathon attracts more than 25,000 athletes from around the globe, making it the perfect time to leave if you’re the kind of person who’d rather make some easy money than run at 6am on a Saturday morning. (Um, good for you if you’re NOT that kind of person.) Those who live near the marathon’s starting line (SoMa, Embarcadero, and the FiDi) should especially do some soul searching as residents in those 'hoods made the most.
6. Google I/O
Dates: Late May, 2016
Average one-bedroom nightly rate: $325
We’re seeing a trend here: basically anytime developers come into town is your cue to get out, especially if you live near the city’s main business areas. The same is true for Google’s two-day developer conference, which is just enough time to hit up a near-SF getaway or embark on an epic West Coast road trip.
7. RSA Conference
Dates: February 29th-March 4th, 2016
Average one-bedroom (near venue) nightly rate: $312
We had to Google what the RSA Conference is, and honestly still don’t have a strong grasp on what exactly goes on during this week of industry events about the future of information security, but it’s definitely super important. You can do your part by letting one of those pros do the serious thinking in your overpriced apartment.
8. J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference
Dates: January 11th-15th, 2016
Average one-bedroom (near venue) nightly rate: $301
The J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference is the “biggest healthcare investing event of the year,” but unless you’re a healthcare investor, you don’t have to go. We hear Hawaii is great this time of year! Like the other conferences on the list, neighborhoods near the city’s major conference centers get the most requests.
