The smallest house in San Francisco currently on the market is priced at $650,000 for a “shabby” 480 square feet abode.
According to SFGate, the house is 480 square feet, has one bedroom and one bathroom, and despite the $650,000 price tag, it is “among the cheapest homes in the city.”
“The shabby, pale pink abode at 66 Bishop St. is a bonafide fixer-upper, but the 2,500 square-foot-lot and the opportunity to remodel and rebuild could be of enormous value,” SFGate claimed. “This is the sort of property contractors and developers scoop up, but it might also be a project for a first-time buyer looking to squeeze into S.F.’s sky-high market, where the median price paid for a home is around $1.3 million.”
Real estate agent Linda Ngo declared, “There aren’t many homes in San Francisco listed at this price… You just have to be willing to put in some elbow grease.”
According to AreaVibes, the San Francisco crime rate is 105 percent higher than the average crime rate in California, and 117 percent higher than the national U.S. crime rate, despite also topping the list of most expensive places to live in the world.
On top of the housing crisis, San Francisco’s streets also has a big problem with human excrement and drugs.
In July, San Francisco Mayor London Breed declared there was a “huge problem” with human excrement being left on the streets.
“There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed stated. “That is a huge problem, and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”
The San Francisco Department of Public Works even announced a “poop patrol” in August to combat the issue, and after NBC Bay Area surveyed 153 blocks in San Francisco, they discovered over 300 piles of excrement and 100 needles.
