Living the San Francisco Dream


FAQ #10: Do You Like Living in San Francisco? Is it for me?

Since moving to San Francisco, I often hear, "Do you like living in San Francisco? What prompted you to move there? We've always thought we might like to do that, too."

San Francisco, with its dynamic living and distinct neighborhoods is not far from San Carlos, where my office, Today Sotheby’s International Realty, is located. Many people in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties, in Alameda, Marin and Contra Costa counties, are expressing interest in urban living after spending happy, busy years in the suburbs.

Perhaps the car-centric life with a two-story home and large yard no longer has the appeal it once did. For some, the idea of being able to put the car in the garage for days at a time and take public transit or walk is refreshing. Some look forward to attending the opera or symphony without the long drive back to the suburbs; some like the idea of having a spot to share with family and friends.

Many housing option are available in San Francisco, whether one is seeking a full-time residence or a pied-a-terre. Each neighborhood has its special attractions and appeal. Together they make San Francisco a dynamic, exciting place to hang one’s hat, a place to call home.

Lottie,  Living in San Francisco is definitely a "lifestyle" that seems to either appeal to people or it doesn't.  My son loves living in San Francisco ... Pacific Heights and would not want to live anywhere else.  I'm glad you are enjoying your new San Francisco lifestyle living!

I love visiting San Francisco, great food, great music, very friendly, never boring , I can certainly understand why people would want to live in or very near the city.

Kathleen, your son must live close to us; we should have coffee sometime when you're up visiting.

Nancy, San Francisco is certainly different from your area, isn't it? You get those amazing sunsets--and jogging on South Mountain is a delight. I clearly haven't spent enough time in Phoenix - yet!
