Roommates & Housing
In San Francisco, it can be challenging to find affordable housing and dependable roommates whom you can share life with and create a sense of home. Below, we share a few resources that might be helpful in your search.
The Body – All Christian Community – Apartments & Things
While not officially associated with Reality SF, this group aims to help Christians in the Bay Area find apartments together and share their belongings like the early Church. If you have a room and you’re looking for someone to fill it, you can use the “Buy/Sell” option to include price and photos in your post. Or if you’re simply looking for housing or a roommate, you can do a discussion post. (When you ask to join the group, be sure to mention that you found it through Reality SF’s website; this helps the moderators approve people quicker.)
Reality SF Women
This group serves as an online hub for Reality SF women, and women often post about roommates and housing needs here.
Reality SF Men
This group serves as an online hub for Reality SF men, and men occasionally post about roommates and housing needs here.

Why We Discontinued the Reality SF Classifieds
For many years, we hosted proprietary classifieds on our site. And while this resource was tremendously popular and helped many people, it also became a source of hurt, deception, and even danger. Over the years, many people have been scammed out of large sums of money by those taking advantage of the resource. And there have even been a few cases in which people nearly encountered serious harm as a result of using our classifieds.
It became increasingly clear to our staff that if we were to continue the classifieds, we would want to do them really well. If we’re hosting a resource on our site, we want to be able to stand behind it 100%. This would mean vetting every single ad closely to ensure purity of intent. And given the limited capacity of our staff, we are not able to sustain that kind of effort at the volume classifieds ads have traditionally come in. We hope the above resources are helpful for you, and we pray that you’re able to find a place that feels like home!
