Who wouldn't want to move to San Mateo? Good weather, nearby beaches and a laid back atmosphere at a lower cost than LA or San Francisco. In the tech-hub area of Silicon Valley, the small city in northern California has been thrust into the worldwide spotlight for its close links with companies such as Facebook, Apple and Google. However, San Mateo has more to offer than just housing for tech-giants.
A historic centre and established college means apartments for rent in San Mateo are not just desired by tech-workers but students and families also. Rentals in San Mateo have become popular in the past decade due to corporate money flooding the Bay area and workers from Silicon Valley on large salaries looking for accommodation. Having said that, San mateo still holds on to its small city status in atmosphere and in price, so it is a great place to move if the rest of the Bay Area seems extortionate.
San Mateo has a prime location within the Bay Area, closely located to both San Jose and San Francisco. Those looking for cheaper accommodation options should consider looking for rooms for rent in San Mateo as this is a great way to move to a new city without paying for an entire apartment alone. Higher priced areas such as Downtown San Mateo could now be affordable in the form of a single or double room whereas an entire apartment would cost a lot more. Bills and utility charges would also be split between the property which is a handy way to save money. A San Mateo sublet is a great way to save cash and useful way to meet a wide range of people living and contributing to the local economy.
