South of Market - San Francisco

South of Market, also known as simply "SoMa", was a warehouse-filled district which turned into a wealthy area at the end of the 20th century. Warehouses were converted into high-end loft apartments. Fashionable bars and trendy restaurants opened to serve the new locals. Nowadays, a new well-off generation leave in South of Market, which is considered as a growing high-end residential neighbourhood. The views of the district changed dramatically, mostly in terms of architecture as Patrick's Church is juxtaposed against modern offices and Daniel Libeskind’s striking Contemporary Jewish Museum. The expansive neighbourhood south of Market Street is distinguished by a few pockets of special interest as it is home to prominent museums, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Cartoon Art Museum, and the California Historical Society.

Buying basics

Before any investment, the potential buyer will have to contact a professional of the real estate sector. The latter will need his client's passport and other administrative and bank documents to testify his identity and his solvency. The buying process is really fast (around one month). You do not need to have the American citizenship nor the famous Green card but you are required to provide a social security number (SSN), which is obligatory to fill in the tax return (that is only $100 for a property).

Besides, it is highly recommended to purchase an insurance regarding the ownership title in order to be secured in case of potential recording error.
