If I didn’t have a cousin who was a real estate agent, I never would have found a place to live out here.
It’s one of those strange, ironic things about life that the same city is known for both its amazing homes, and its huge homeless population.
Having seen the market values, and considering the way the economy has been going, it’s not a surprise to me. San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities you will ever see, but also one of the most expensive. Thankfully my cousin Ella is a San Francisco real estate agent, and she provided me with a lot of helpful advice and pointers. Even better, Ella got me a job helping her in the local real estate office, because business is booming and she needs all the help she can get. Mostly what I do is ride my bike around downtown San Francisco putting up fliers and signs that read We Buy Houses. Have you seen these signs before? Cash for houses is one of the main ways the real estate agency acquired new properties, either for rentals or to renovate and resell. San Francisco real estate companies are always locked in a bitter fight to get all the new properties they can. San Francisco property values are going up year after year, so we view every property as a potential money-maker. I have started putting a Q code on the back of all my We Buy Houses and Cash for Homes signs, so I can keep track of which areas get a better response.
