Articles about housing prices in San Francisco are skyrocketing, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. 1 in 3 articles are now about rental prices in SF, up from 1 in 5 at this time last year.
“I used to be able to read Bay Area blogs and learn about burritos,” says longtime blog reader Joel Seiderman. “Now it seems like every article I read or share is about apartments and evictions. This isn’t the San Francisco I used to know.”
Mayor Ed Lee’s office has released a response to the crisis. “More needs to be done.” said Lee. “We are committed to fast-tracking articles that are not about housing costs in SF. Already we have more than 200 non-housing related articles in development, with 600 more slated for 2015.”
