Found at the far south, steeply sloping down, Visitacion Valley starts high in the northeast corner and rolls down to sea level where San Francisco ends and Daly City begins. Homes in the northeast heights offer soaring southern views.
Silver Terrace is very central yet oddly aloof thanks to geographical fate. Bordered to the north, south, and east by freeway and industrial park, it perches above the Bayview, and select homes offer stunning bridge views.
Inner Daly City? The curves of I-280 define this skinny stretch of streets that are more connected to the shops of Daly City, with the Daly City BART stop just a few blocks from homes on the south end of the neighborhood. I-280 might have pushed you into Daly City’s arms, but we still love […]

South of the Excelsior, north of Daly City. Classic single-family San Francisco homes in a historically working-class neighborhood with a county line running across it from east to west. A little more spacious than the Excelsior, but not so spacious that you’ll think you’ve left the city.
As south as you can go and still be in San Francisco. Once home to Candlestick Park, now home to office parks and several condominium developments. While the Candlestick Recreation Area may be windswept and solitary today, the future for this neighborhood calls for thousands of homes and a new neighborhood core.
