Hello again alexinca-ga,
I?m impressed with your ambitions and your life style preferences.
I?ve located a variety of housing possibilities that should help you
get your rent well under $1000.
I had no idea that the San Francisco Bay Area is a mecca for
cooperative housing. There are several that may be of interest to you.
Finding an apartment to rent by yourself is going to be tough, if not
impossible, in San Francisco. However, you should be able to find
something under $1000 on the Peninsula or in the South Bay. I
recommend that you review the craigslist postings daily. This is
probably the best place to find apartments and share rentals /
roommates. I?ve given you samples of both. In addition, I?ve also
listed some other sites that might be useful if the co-ops or
craigslist don?t work out.
I hope the resources I?ve found will help you to make a speedy move so
you can concentrate on your work and business plans.
Best wishes for success in all your endeavors.
