San Francisco, a good market for landlords

The business press never ceases to surprise me with how vapid they are. Forbes is claiming that San Francisco is one of the best markets to be a landlord. They have be joking. The cap rate on residential real estate in San Francisco is around 3% which is terrible. San Francisco has one of the worst rent to purchase price ratios in the nation.

Forbes reporters and their friends at Marcus & Millichap need some remedial finance. I admonish them to say "Assets are worth the cash flows they generate" ten times slowly as their penance.
