It's the typical game played here. Unfortunately, there's no secret code, you just have to call and ask.

2 questions:
1.How do you find apartments that don't have roomates? (Every listing I look at has hidden at the bottom of the page "share with 2 cool 20 somethings". And some don't tell you there are roommates but the price is suspiciously low.)

2.What's the drawback for the cheap rent there, thin walls, or just the distance from transit options?
The garage came with the apartment. If you needed to park your car, it was an extra $100.

You find apartments by driving around the neighborhoods of the Outter Richmond. This is how, among my other friends, found their very cheap apartments. Unless you have oodles of money, or want to just give up and move to Daly City, than I suggest you start doing this.

Draw backs? It's not downtown, and there isn't much life. You can grab a cup of coffee, and than go home to your very cheap apartments. It's either that or Bay View!

Looks awesome! I Yelped Outer Richmond and they have tons of small markets and even a couple movie theatres. It's near GG park and close enough to Marin county for biking in mountains; looks great! I heard they are gonna be getting Bus Rapid Transit on Geary in a few years.
