Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. This week we look at rentals for $2,000/mo. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ We begin at the very top of Green Lake (the neighborhood, not the actual lake) where you can get this 1,455 sq. ft. townhouse. The 2005-built 2BR has the usual features on the main level: hardwoods, kitchen with granite and gas fireplace. The place comes with two master suites, perfect for roommates who don't want to have to haggle with another. Of course, there's only one garage parking spot, so there's still plenty to haggle over.
↑ Next, we head down to High Point where there's a 1,380 sq. ft. 2BR available at our price. Built in 2013, it also includes a bonus room/den that you could convert, though the two main bedrooms both come with ensuite bathrooms. The centralized West Seattle location puts you in the midst of a well-maintained community just south of the West Seattle Golf Course.
↑ Next up, Belltown, where $2,000/mo. will get us a 975 sq. ft. 2BR in Royal Crest Apartments. The unit itself looks pretty self-explanatory but this one is for those seeking a city location in a building full of modern amenities, which include a pool, sauna and secure parking.
↑ Over to Queen Anne for the next place on the list, an 850 sq. ft. 2BR in a renovated duplex. Everything is brand new in this unit and it shows. Not super-spacious but the deck access from both bedrooms helps open things up a bit. Location-wise, you're closer to Interbay than Seattle Center.
↑ We end in Capitol Hill where $2,000/mo. will get you our tiniest offering so far, a 744 sq. ft. 2BR nestled in a historic building. The unit has been restored and pops with bright colors and shiny appliances. The building itself maintains a vintage charm and the location really is pretty central to the neighborhood and Seattle itself. Perfect for a young tenant, it's priced for someone who usually wants something more modern, so, it's a bit of a paradox.
