San Francisco

San Francisco is one of the most in-demand real estate markets in the nation and is considered a leading Real Estate Superstar City. Over the past several years, San Francisco properties have maintained their value better than the rest of the nation.  

Traditionally, San Francisco has held one of the highest buy-vs-rent ratio making it a rental market. However, purchasing an investment property in San Francisco will require a substantial down payment in order to be immediately cash flow positive.

Buying a buy-and-hold in this city is one of the best real estate investments because there are so many things to do in San Francisco and in each of its neighborhoods - making it an optimal city for Airbnb and traditional real estate investing. The market analysis shows that an Airbnb investment property in San Francisco can sometimes provide higher returns than traditional real estate investing, which is greatly due to San Francisco tourism.
