The fourth installment of Million Dollar Listing takes place in the highly coveted (and high priced) environs of San Francisco. Real estate agents Justin Fichelson, Roh Habibi, and Andrew Greenwell give viewers a peek into their hectic lives, as demanding clients looking for the top properties usually translates to a highly pressurized situation.
Since I’m not a home owner, my best bet these days (if I ever want to move up north) is to rent. But in San Francisco, finding a place will cost you a pretty penny.
“There’s 40,000 new jobs that have been created in San Francisco because of the tech industry,” says Habibi. “So all of these young people that are moving there with tons of money need places to live. So that drove up the rental market 35%. So a one-bedroom in San Francisco that’s 500 square feet – you’re paying over 3,000 to rent.”
But what about people who have enough money for a down payment and a sizable mortgage? Since the average buyer can go online and go house hunting on their own, what can these brokers realistically offer?
