That's one way to still make money in real estate during this market. Of course it requires you don't get caught.

I have read about this happening in foreclosed houses. The people running the show never set foot on the property. They just send undocumented workers to do all the work.

SF is a pretty favorable place to grow and sell drugs
Less severe (if any) sentences compared to San Mateo County

The cops are getting their tax-collection in before November. Look for a lot more of this in the coming months.

As an architect I have experienced the opposite.
In the mid '80's I was called in to convert a pot farm to a rental unit in the basement space underneath a hillside home in the outer Mission. I didn't know what it was beforehand and suddenly found myself amongst what seemed like hundreds of pot plants - trying to keep a straight face.
