The least expensive apartments in San Bruno will run you $1100. For that you get a 450 square foot studio apartment at Peninsula Place, walking distance to the BART station.

If you require more space, plan on spending almost $1300 for a studio and $1475 to $1635 for a one bedroom. For this price, one would hope that the complex is somewhat attractive and one would be correct. The Crystal Springs Terrace complex is quite pretty with lots of onsite amenities, including a sauna and theater room.

Luxury apartments in San Bruno start at over $2,000. Now, although that seems like good news, the bad news is that the apartments at this price are located in a complex that lies directly under the flight path of the behemoths taking off and landing at San Francisco International. If you want to avoid inhaling jet fumes all day you’ll need to pay more in another complex.

San Bruno’s vacancy rate is quite low – only 3.9 percent – so it may be a challenge to locate exactly what you’re looking for. Keep a vigilant eye, however, and we’re sure you’ll find one eventually.

Bringing the pooch? Another challenge there, my friend. There aren’t a lot of pet-friendly apartments in San Bruno. Those that allow pets typically ask for pretty hefty pet deposits.

It costs a lot to live in San Bruno mainly because of its location. For a couple of bucks, you can ride BART and be in The City within 20 minutes. It’s also adjacent to SFO, tucked between South San Francisco and Millbrae.

San Bruno boasts a population of just over 41,000 people. San Bruno, once a stagecoach stop, is now home to Youtube headquarters – the largest employer in the area.

If you can afford it, we think you’ll be quite happy living in San Bruno. Welcome to the Bay Area!
