"Family-oriented, affordable and safe SF neighborhood with stunning views"

Visitacion Valley, like the rest of San Francisco, has transformed significantly over the last decade. We live in this neighborhood and highly recommend it to professionals and families who work in downtown SF or in the Peninsula.

-It is a family-oriented neighborhood, with most of the houses being owner-occupied.
-A safe neighborhood that is clean, quiet and safe; as with any other part of SF, there are a few blocks on south western end with slightly higher crime.
-It is one of last affordable neighborhoods in San Francisco; you can still get a single family house for less than a million
-Lots of shopping and restaurants on San Bruno Avenue - Tiffanys for brunch, Four Barrel for coffee, lot of Asian and Mexican restaurants
-Fantastic parks and nature trails in John McLaren park, which has been significantly renovated in recent years
-Easy access to highways 101 and 280; also it is relatively easy to get Uber/Lyft into downtown or SFO
-Good access to public transport with multiple bus lines and T-line MUNI
-Stunning views of the Bay and San Bruno Hills from most houses and streets, especially those on a hill

- Not great schools like most of San Francisco
- Not much of a nightlife
- Limited grocery store options, other than Grocery Outlet
