People really hate daly city huh? When i first come to this country 30 yrs ago i live in sunset for 10 yrs then move to daly city after my dad bought a house there 20 yrs ago. In the beginning daly city is not as convinient as sunset, but now time has changed, the city of daly city has done a fabulous job compare to other city.
so here's some breakdown why i like daly city more, we own two property in daly city, my parents place in westlake #1 district and mine in westlake terrace(longview drive). #1 district i have to say is better than a lot of area in sunset. In terms of fogs, there's a misunderstanding daly city is always foggy, not true, only like 3 big months a year and some here and there. westlake #1 is not foggy at all , pretty similar to sunset or even better. Environment is very similar to sunset,and houses are detached a plus, close to shopping mall, close to bart, close to bus.
for my other house currently rented out, that area is a bit more foggy, but great part is that many houses there have 2 story , same as sunset houses, also detached, oceanview(my wife loves). has bus to bart that's pretty convinient. Also daly city has very low water/garbage rate, parking are easier, roads repave pretty often compare to other city, and the city council has done a great job bringing in business and development and very safe(police is amazing, i called 2 times in 20 yrs, once for some kid playing hide and seek in neighbors yard and once for loud noise of renter moving in at same block) both times cops came and responded within 5-10 minutes.
To me, sunset is way over rated, after living there for 10 yrs, hard to find parking, and hear my neighbors next door left and right making noise, my friend even can hear next door having sex and banging on the wall every night. Extremely difficult to find parking, crime is absolutely ridiculous. The only area i like sunset is near the zoo.
one last thing, NO RENT CONTROL.
sfdragonboy, as for san bruno, really depends on your own personal preference. just not on the other side of el camino. compare crestmoor and rollingwood , creatmoor is a lot better, rollingwood has quite a lot of crime.
