In San Francisco, floating staircases generate higher rents. As such, ReLISTO prices these type of rental properties higher than similar properties in the same neighborhood; We know they’re are in high demand with our tenant customers.
Due to state code requirements, owner must build floating staircases to specific standards. These standards prevent the building of a “true” floating staircase since rails must be present on each side. Rails help steady the user while ascending/descending thereby helping avoid falls. On the downside, it counters the minimalist aesthetics and most unfortunately, at a time we all want home prices to fall, dramatically increases the cost to build. In San Francisco, standard floating staircases will have glass on the open side.
ReLISTO helps San Francisco and Central Coast owners lease and manage their properties. We secure qualified tenants, effectively manage each property and take care of each resident. We as part of our capital improvement program are happy to help our owners evaluate the benefits of converting their staircase. If right for our owner, our management team will even help manage the build as part of our standard service.
