San Francisco Renters are 80% Happy Campers

How happy are renters living in SF, the most expensive city in the U.S.? A group of 600 San Franciscans took part (among 14,284 renters in 36 U.S. cities) in a survey conducted by the rental site Zumper.

With the results in, it turns out that renters in San Francisco are 4-out-5 happy campers, and are among the most satisfied with their metropolis environs in the country.

When asked to rank their satisfaction with SF on a scale of 1 to 5, 49% of the SF survey takers ticked the 5 for the city. Another 31% ticked the city a 4 out of 5. So, we’re up to 80% feeling good about San Francisco.

On the other hand, 6% of the SF people surveyed scored the city a 1 or a 2—and they must have some pretty strong beefs with our city to do that.

While SF wasn’t at the top in satisfaction, we were 7th overall among the 36 cities.
