I believe it's 14 days, based on Rule 15.

Yep, once you removed to fed ct fed procedural rules and law apply, so it's the 14-day Rule 15 deadline. Either way, keep yourself to the shorter deadline so there's no possibility of giving yourself more heartburn than necessary.

Can someone explain how it possibly makes sense to buy, purely from a financial perspective, in sf right now? I want to, but a 2b mortgage seems like it’s ~$5k in the areas I’m interested in whereas rent for a comparable unit is $2.9-3.5k/month. Have never lived here before so not sure if this is normal or not? Is the covid rental discount that extreme and prices are usually closer to the monthly mortgage amount?
