I'm moving to San Francisco from the east coast soon. I will be joining Uber as an SE2. I am a single guy and looking for a nice 1 bedroom apartment. UBER's HQ is in the Soma area but it will be moved to Mission Bay soon.
Here are my options, please help me choose. I have included the monthly rent (utilities included), the approximate area and commute.
The rents are so high! Let me know about the other available options.
Soma is a bit soulless but it’s hard to beat walking distance.
My general preference would be Oakland but 40 mins is a long commute. (Edit: as the next commenter said, you should be able to find a quicker commute in Oakland)
My advice is this: don’t decide based on the money. If you’re only considering those other options because they’re cheaper, a few hundred dollars a month isn’t worth your happiness.
