Neighborhoods are an ever changing thing in San Francisco. It seems like real estate agents conjur up whole new neighborhoods out of thin air when they’re trying to increase prices. In some cases these neighborhoods blend together and unless you know you’re streets you’d never know you entered a new one; other times you walk one block and the vibe changes quickly. Neighborhoods are a big deal here. Different parts of this city have their own personalities, so where you live says a lot about who you are (and what you can afford).
Whether you’re looking for a happening nightlife scene, or a family-friendly haven, or something that feels away from the buzz of the city, there’s something for you in San Francisco. Fortunately, we’re here to help you narrow down which ‘hoods to consider. Our detailed neighborhood profiles show you cost of housing, safety ratings, amenities, local school performance, and more! And if you’re not even sure where to begin, use the Neighborhood Explorer to filter neighborhoods based on home size and cost, who lives there, amenities, and location.
