Artistic, diverse, and a true working-class community, Bayview is San Francisco’s lively industrial heart. Home to a vibrant artist colony, the streets of Bayview are lined with locally owned corner stores and cafes, art spaces, friendly parks, and urban gardens. In 2016, it was recognized as San Francisco’s Neighborhood of the Year by Curbed San Francisco.

Located in the southeast section of the city, some people say that Bayview represents what the rest of the city has forgotten– diversity. Immigrants from different parts of the world have made Bayview their home since the early part of the 20th century. This cultural diversity has led to an explosion of flavors, music, art, and collaborative spaces. In Bayview, residents know and talk to each other. There’s a real sense of community. It’s recently been made even more accessible thanks to the MUNI light rail.

The local market comprises a mélange of traditional single-family homes, condos, and multi-family buildings.
