Better Metrics Are Coming
Something just doesn't jibe with the majority of statistics we see published on the San Francisco rental market.

But as we walk down the street we see more “For Rent” signs than ever before; casual conversations with property managers turn to units that have been sitting vacant for months on end; and our apartment hunting peers complain of actually having too many options.
Our solution? Develop, track, and share our own set of metrics to keep tabs on the city’s rental market. So stay tuned, our first installment of “Monday Morning Metrics” is only a week away...
