San Francisco’s Housing Crisis in Numbers

Data on the Housing Crisis in SF:
—From the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project

No-Fault Evictions:

•    The number of evictions in 2013 has surpassed evictions in 2006, the height of the real estate bubble. Total no-fault evictions are up 17% compared to 2006.
•    Between 2012 and 2013 evictions have increased by 115%
•    Ellis Act use went up 175% between 2012 and 2013
•    While the Rent Board dos not provide info on how many bedrooms or people reside in units that are reported on (for all no-fault evictions) if we make a rough estimate that 1 and 5 people live in each unit, between 716 and 3580 residents were evicted within the last year.
Rent Increases:

•    In 2010 42.4% of Latino Households were doubled up
•    San Francisco has the highest rents in the United States. The 2013 city wide median for all types of apartments according to Zillow.Com is $3,414.00, an 8/2% increase from 2012
•    42.9% of all SF households are rent-burdened (pay more than 30% of their income in rent)

Eviction Rates around Tech Shuttle Bus Stops:

•    This map shows the density of the 1175 active restaurant and cafés that registered with the city from 2011-2013.  
•    Rents in walkable distance to a tech shuttle stop are increasing more rapidly  (20% higher) than areas not within walkable distance of the shuttles stops.

• This heat map explores the relationship between private shuttle stop locations and indicators of neighborhood affluence.  










•    Jesus Sanchez, CJJC member and tenant on 24th St between Mission and Valencia (less than a block from the 24th St. x Mission shuttle stop) recently came home to find that the locks of his unit had been changed and he was being denied access to his home (until after an emergency action was organized). The landlord was clear about his motives stating that he was renovating the unit to be able to re-rent them for almost double the amount Jesus is currently paying.
