San Franciso is ground zero of the national housing crisis.

Cost of rent has skyrocketed in San Francisco in recent decades, but income has lagged far behind. More than 75% of San Franciscans have historically been renters, and yet over 50% of families in the Bay Area are considered to be “rent burdened,” paying more than 30% of their income in rent.
