About San Francisco, CA (Golden Gate Ave / Market St)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Golden Gate Ave / Market St real estate is primarily composed of apartments and renters, so no median house value data are available. The average rental price in Golden Gate Ave / Market St is currently $1,104, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 90.5% of California neighborhoods.

Golden Gate Ave / Market St is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in San Francisco, California.

Golden Gate Ave / Market St real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood are relatively historic, built no later than 1939, and in some cases, quite a bit earlier. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Golden Gate Ave / Market St has a 13.5% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 70.1% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character.

This particular neighborhood in San Francisco, the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 25.1% of residents here.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

What you'll find when you visit or move to this neighborhood is one of the most crowded neighborhoods in all of America. With an incredible 101,881 people per square mile, it is more densely populated than 99.7% of America's neighborhoods. Even if you drive or take transit to your place of employment, many people enjoy being able to walk in their neighborhood. What many people don't realize is that most of America's premier vacation locations are also very walkable. The Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood is among the top 5% of American neighborhoods in terms of walkability.

In addition, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 95.7% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.3% of all neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 96.9%, which is higher than 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.

Also of note, the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 91.5% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.

Finally, do you watch 'This Old House' on Public Television? Do you love the idea of fixing up a Colonial or Victorian era home, complete with the charm of yesteryear? Do you like to stroll or drive streets lined with gracious older residences? If you found yourself nodding yes to any of these questions, you are going to be interested in this unique neighborhood. The Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood stands out on a national scale for the sheer concentration of historic residences it contains: 63.2% of the residential real estate here was built from 1939 or earlier, some much earlier. This is a greater concentration of historic homes than 96.3% of the neighborhoods in the United States.

Notable & Unique: People

The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America, has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 66.1%. This is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood buck this trend. 51.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood has more Asian and Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 41.6% of this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 1.8% have Ukrainian ancestry.

Golden Gate Ave / Market St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 9.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (51.6%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods, but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the transience of its populace. What is interesting to note, is that the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (49.4%) than are found in 97.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood in San Francisco are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 98.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 17.5% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 52.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood, 48.4% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 20.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (20.2%), and 10.8% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood in San Francisco, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (41.6%). There are also a number of people of Mexican ancestry (4.4%), and residents who report German roots (4.1%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (3.2%), along with some South American ancestry residents (2.3%), among others. In addition, 49.4% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (41.6% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (52.2%) ride the bus to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (25.1%) and 10.2% of residents also drive alone in a private automobile for their daily commute. The bus provides a valuable service in the Golden Gate Ave / Market St neighborhood of San Francisco by getting a lot of residents to and from work daily, reducing the costs of commuting and reducing some congestion on the roads as well.
