San Francisco Airbnb Rentals as of November 16 2014

airbnb-sf-20141116-1b
Tables for Chart here

These numbers are derived from active San Francisco rentals downloaded from Airbnb website on 11-16-2014.
In the chart items enclosed in “[ ]” brackets were either blank or contained an html error in the downloaded file. Other fields in the files were examined to discern what type of unit/property it was (description, title, etc; sometimes the link to property photos was used).

The term ‘Not Shared’ as used here denotes an Airbnb website rental listing for the ‘entire’ unit (apartment or house or other).
The term ‘Shared’ as used here denotes an Airbnb website rental listing for a ‘private’ or ‘shared’ room (in the apartment or house or other).

These raw numbers make no attempt to differentiate between part-time and full-time rentals (it cannot be done solely by examining the downloaded html files). What can be said is that 3983 unique Host ID’s were found. 3439 Hosts listed 1 unit for rent; 384 Hosts listed 2 units for rent for a total of 768 units; 89 Hosts listed 3 to 10 units for rent for a total of 561 units; 14 Hosts listed more than 10 units for rent for a total of 219 units.

Oh great. Now the housing crisis can’t be solved. And the tech folks are afraid to talk in public – 48 hills

Oh great. Now the housing crisis can’t be solved. And the tech folks are afraid to talk in public – 48 hills.

By Tim Redmond

NOVEMBER 20, 2014 – You know the housing crisis in San Francisco has gone from insane to absurd when the City Planning Department gets in trouble for posting a video saying we need more housing – and the Atlantic suggests that maybe there’s no solution at all.

Then a reporter from TechChrunch holds a meeting to try to get tech people and housing activists to talk – but decides it has to be private so that it won’t blow up.

And sometimes I just want to pound my head against the wall and say: What is the matter with everyone? Are so many people so blinded by free-market ideology and a lack of historical understanding that they think this is (a) the result of Nimbys and rent control and (b) can’t be solved?

Does anyone really think the activists will give up shouting and protesting and meet for a polite chat while thousands are being thrown out on the streets — and the tech world is doing nothing to help?

I will take a deep breath and try to sort this out.

Global Financial Crash, Twitter Tax Break, and maybe a Google Bus or Two?

Global Financial Crash of 2008-2009, Twitter Tax  Break enacted in 2011, and maybe a Google Bus or Two (there seem to be more of them on the streets every day)?
I think it’s a fair assumption these are all partial causes for the numbers below.

The terms used, and the source of the data, are explained on the chart itself.
The migration numbers used are from the survey data for ‘All Ages’ surveyed, which provides the largest sample size.
The survey asked San Francisco residents did you move within the past year? and if so, where from? (1) another residence within San Francisco, (2) another county within California, (3) another state within the US, or (4) another country?

A few observations…

As the Tech Sector (‘Information’) grows at near-astronomical rates since the 2011 Twitter Tax Break, so (nearly) does the influx of ‘foreigners’ (70,341 in 2012). Those moving to San Francisco from within California (outside San Francisco) account for half of these, the other half made up of 60% non-California US states and 40% foreign countries.

And as the Tech Sector (‘Information’) grows at near-astronomical rates, the number of those moving within San Francisco steadily declines. Some might characterize this number (M1T in the chart) as not ‘migration’, but rather the ability to move from one residence to another within the city. And whether it’s from a lack of finances, or a shortage of available housing, or some other factor, it’s clear that it’s happening less and less, inversely proportional to the increases in tech employees and high tech salaries.

The overall Jobs numbers are improving but this is largely due to the Tech influx (2012 saw an overall increase of 28,616 jobs; 14,926 of those were in Tech). If there is a bubble, and if the bubble bursts, it’s going to hurt.

During these years the population of San Francisco, on average, grew about 10,000 each year. During these years the newly arrived residents of San Francisco numbered, on average, about 58,000 per year, according to the survey. That’s 48,000 people per year, out the door, gone for good. Were they the same people who just moved in? Or were they long-time residents, squeezed out by economics? Some of this is normal in every city, but this is San Francisco. How many is ‘normal’ and how many is not (ie forced out)? It seems odd that no-one at city hall deems this worthy of developing a method to measure it.

ps: The global financial crash. Just referencing the number dips for 2008-2009.

Genius! Google-bus and Uber Combined! Disruptor Hall of Fame Nominee!

Boy, I wish I thought of this…

The genius of ‘Chariot’, the latest disruption to San Francisco city (once known as ‘public’–what a quaint antiquated term) streets.
Their genius is available here for your perusal

I just hope they don’t have to wait as long as Google and Airbnb had to wait before our Board of Supervisors finally post-legislated their business model into legality.
(I pray they can get it done before David Chiu leaves office!)

Here’s a Google Maps tour of their ‘Chestnut Bullet, Marina to Downtown’, bus route stops…
