Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story stated over 100,000 homes were vacant in San Francisco. In fact, the LendingTree study was referring to the San Francisco metro area, not just the city of San Francisco itself.
The story has been corrected to reflect this.
Here’s a number that will make anyone trying to find a place to live in the Bay Area frustrated: An estimated 100,025 households are sitting vacant in the San Francisco metro area.
The number comes from a study released this week by LendingTree, an online service connecting consumers with lenders and banks. The company based in Charlotte, N.C., looked at the vacancy rates in the nation’s 50 largest metropolitan areas, revealing some interesting findings.
