That doesn't sell newspapers or eyeballs either. No one wants to cover these good stories, doom and gloom creates clicks.

I think her point was the number of rent controlled places left in San Francisco isn't tiny.

It's only tiny if you're trying to find one to move into. San Francisco represents 2% of the population of California, so the idea that rent control is a major issue in gentrification in California in general is what I'm questioning. Even if every apartment in SF was rent controlled, 98% of Californians don't live there.

Actually it is "his" as I am a guy, but yeah that was my point that there are lots of rent control apartments in SF.

Cities and states are much different, there isn't a need for rent control throughout the state of California, that would just be dumb, but there are high priced cities that are in the need of rent controlled/stabilized apartments. NYC needs rent controls, but those same rent controls don't need to apply to Buffalo.

Sounds like a list of the most expensive/most gentrified places to live in California. Maybe I should be thankful that we don't have rent control where I live, given that rents in my neck of the woods are cheaper than in rent-controlled cities?

That is kind of the point of rent control, why would you want to put rent controls in place in a city that doesn't have an issue with rents?

I don't know... Hayward, East Palo Alto and Oakland are on the list.

I remember when Oakland was added and it was the reason I shifted from residential to commercial Real Estate.

Now that San Francisco is priced out, Oakland is the new frontier of ongoing gentrification.
