Question by David: Where do people live when they work at San Francisco?
I might get a job offer in San Francisco, CA. I am currently located in Houston, TX and I want to know where does people that has a job in San Francisco normally live? I have done research on cost of living, but I want to know if someone knows a good place to live and NOT expensive.

San Francisco and the surrounding areas have a very very high cost of living. The more affordable areas are either far enough away to make a commute difficult (an hour or more) or are quite unsafe. Coming from Houston, I’m afraid you’ll find everything in the Bay Area quite expensive.
My best suggestions:
1. Either to find a roommate and stay in San Francisco, or
2. Take a look at a BART map and check out the towns on the “end of the lines” of each arm.

Be careful with Oakland and Berkeley – some areas are beautiful and expensive and others are quite unsafe.
