Floating Staircases

ReLISTO- Build Floating Staircase for your Rental

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.






State of California Updates the Three Day Notice Rule

New three day notice rules for the State of California  go into effect September 1, 2009.  Moving forward weekend and holidays may no longer be counted as a “day”.  ReLISTO a residential and full property management service company for San Francisco  has already incorporated this into our workflow to ensure our landlords stay compliant with the law  and any notice provided is done so correctly. Below is the summary and recommendation from the San Francisco Apartment Association regarding this matter.
“Under a law taking effect September 1, 2019, weekends and court holidays will no longer count toward the three-day notice period and the five-day period for responding to an unlawful-detainer summons and complaint. For example, under the new law, the deadline to pay rent for a three-day notice served given on a Friday wouldn’t be due until Wednesday— two days later than the current Monday deadline.
Previously, weekends and court holidays could count toward these notice periods, although a notice could not expire on weekend or court holiday.
To ensure compliance with the new law, AB 2343, SFAA recommends that the new method of counting should be used for three day notices served on or after August 29, 2019 and for complaints served on or after August 27, 2019.”

ReLISTO on ABC News!

Christian Elbeck from ReLISTO was  featured on ABC news June 19th, 2019.  It was a story on how many of San Francisco’s residents join with others to lease larger homes and split living costs. The rooms utilized to accomplish this are sometimes unconventional, with housemates using a dining, fainting or laundry room as a bedrooms. This is done without the consent of the Agent or Owner but its being done to distribute the rent to a manageable amount for each resident. For some, its not a matter of financial need but rather a desire to live in a community.

Regardless of reason, San Francisco is in dire need of more housing. Housing should include not only conventional apartments and houses but also micro apartments and co-living homes (dorms for adults).
