Just How Bad is Home Ownership in San Francisco, CA?

A lot of press has been written over the last few years on the high price of home ownership in San Francisco. There is little debate that the price of real estate in, and around our fair city has skyrocketed, making it very hard for some people to afford buying a home. But, less has been written about the other side of this issue: Those who have no home at all. A recent article came out about this and we thought we would share with you.

“San Francisco’s homeless population, it bears mentioning, increased less than 7 percent over the last 10 years. Tent camps are nothing new. According to Jeff Kositsky, the director of San Francisco’s Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing, what has changed is their visibility. Tech-boom construction has filled empty lots where people “experiencing homelessness” — that’s the preferred term — formerly slept in seclusion.”

​Another side to the high price of real estate is that many of those who currently own a home or property in San Francisco are opting to stay put, rather than looking for another home or property. When this happens, many of these folks start to think of new flooring as a good, solid investment. With that in mind, many people are now asking the question: Why Strandwoven flooring from EcoFusion?

The answers to “why Strandwoven” are numerous, but here are a few of the more common ones:

Strandwoven flooring from EcoFusion is bamboo flooring that is very environmentally friendly. Rather than cut down old-growth hardwood trees, EcoFusion uses bamboo, which is a readily renewable material. This flooring is processed using the most eco-friendly techniques possible. No damage is done to the environment at all.

Another answer to “why Strandwoven”, is that the process used creates one of the hardest and most stable flooring systems on earth. In fact, Strandwoven is harder than most traditional hardwood flooring. This means that it will last far longer than traditional flooring. Yet, these flooring systems are every bit as beautiful as any wood flooring you have ever seen.

You may think that with this many benefits, Strandwoven flooring would be priced high. Not so. In fact, these flooring systems are really no more expensive than many traditional wood systems.
