I'm in the exact same boat. The true locals (yes, I am not in this group) are the few normal people I've met here and who still seem to be genuine people. Most others are hipsters, who I despise. They aren't bad people, just not regular people. Their image is what defines them now, so who knows what type of people they are underneath their veneer of superficiality. It's not worth trying to find out I've discovered. The locals and those who have been around for awhile are who I tend to get along with the best and who've been the only real friendships I've made in 3 years here. The rest are temporary and more superficial acquaintances.
That being said, I don't mind the techies...except those who are also hipsters.
Where you are in the city also matters. The outer sunset, for instance, is less appealing in general, but the people there seem to be much more approachable and normal. I suppose that makes sense, as that's one of the few places left that normal people can still afford.

Roger that!

Hipsters? No thank you.

I only allow two signatures on the lease and working in a coffee shop ain`t going to cut it.

Gross income has to be at least $11,000 a month or 3.5 the rent.

I`ve got a couple currently renting with a combined income of $250,000.

Actually, it`s not easy finding good renters in SF as many applicants are broke as a joke.

As a landlord I`ve got to be very careful because evictions are quite costly in this city.
