What $700/Month Can Rent You in Seattle Right Now

New, 1 comment

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 $700/mo. You tell us which lease you'd sign.


We begin in Greenwood where you can get a 225 sq. ft. studio in CUBIX for $725/mo. This micro studio unit includes a private bathroom, kitchenette, large mirrored closet, fridge, microwave, quartz counters, pantry and cabinet storage. All utilities provided including high speed internet. If you're interested in off-street parking, add $50 to the rate. Only one occupant allowed, though that's probably for the best.


Next, we go to Capitol Hill where there's a 116 sq. ft. "ultra efficient studio" in Towne for $725/mo. The unit contains a 3/4 bath, kitchen and space for an elevated bed as well as newer laminate flooring and custom paint. Those looking to live in Capitol Hill without concern over personal space might find a good deal here.


Next, it's on to Madison Valley where we found a 230 sq. ft. aPodment in Videré for $735/mo. The building includes open kitchens located on the main floors along with center courtyards, a laundry facility, storage and parking. Utilities and Internet included. Hope you don't role around too much in your sleep, though...


We now head to U District where this studio is listed for $750/mo. The photos are bit blurry but we can see hardwood floors, big open windows, an inset closet and a newly remodeled bathroom. Rent doesn't include utilities unlike some of the other options, good to keep in mind.


Finally, we end up in the International District where there's a 398 sq. ft. studio in Alps Apartments for $745/mo. Each unit here comes equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, bathroom and stove. You can add on garage parking for $170 a month and note that utilities aren't included. And is it us or is the toilet in a closet?
