San Francisco Relocation Guide

If you’re relocating to San Francisco or within the City itself, you may be at a loss as to how to take on the tasks to make this happen – or even what those tasks are. What are the homes for rent in San Francisco? How to evaluate San Francisco real estate rentals?

That’s why I’ve created this guide. Moving to the City by the Bay or even within its boundaries can sometimes feel intimidating. This is a prominent, complex place with many challenges and rewards, which is why you’re moving here in the first place! Let’s look at some of the main things that will need to get done for you to have a successful move and then continue to enjoy life here by the Bay.

First, you’ve got to do your homework. This involves researching the areas where you’re interested in living and focusing on the elements that mean the most to you. This could mean any combination of the following:

  • Public transit access and availability of parking
  • Average rents
  • School quality
  • Access to educational, cultural, and recreational amenities
  • Natural refuges such as parks
  • Availability of great restaurants, cafes, and nightlife

Then it’s time to make this move happen. That means ensuring you’re in good financial shape to make a move – and qualify for a great San Francisco rental property. Here are a few steps toward doing just that:

  • Check your credit, disputing and correcting any errors
  • If you have time, try to improve your credit score by improving your spending and payment habits
  • Gather your documentation, including pay stubs and bank statements

Now it’s time to search for your perfect rental; the timing of this will depend on the urgency of your move.
