As you may suspect, rents were highest in areas like the Financial District ($4,180), Mission Bay ($3,970), and Soma ($3,890). Some of the lowest rates were seen in neighborhoods like Tenderloin, Bayview, and Outer Sunset, which all came in under $2,500 in August, according to Zumper. But good luck even affording that...
If you're not already crying, there's more. Turns out that San Francisco's rent actually reached a new peak, with prices for a 1 bedroom increasing by nearly 1% to an average of $3,530. With that, San Francisco handily maintained its position as the most expensive rental market in the nation this month, followed by New York and Boston.
Time to find a cardboard box and promptly sob into it.
