What $1,000/Month Can Rent You in Seattle Right Now

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're investigating apartments listed for $1,000/month. You tell us which lease you'd sign.


Bet you were picturing nothing but 400 sq. ft. studios. And yet, here we are at a 1,720 sq. ft. 1-BR in West Seattle. That includes a 760 sq. ft. finished basement, laundry machines and an attached garage. Also puts you pretty close to the Junction if you're looking for something close to retail & restaurants.


Next, we head to the corner of 35th & Fremont Ave where this 1-BR is available. Tiny kitchen but decent-enough space for the price. Building amenities include a small backyard with a BBQ pit, onsite laundry facilities, storage and bike racks. Not a shabby spot if you want to be in the middle of the action in Fremont, assuming what happens in Fremont meets your definition of "action."


Inside this gorgeous 1920's brick building you'll find a studio space available for $995/mo. Well-kept and in great shape, you could do worse in terms of living arrangements. No word on the square-footage but a pretty ideal spot for Seattle U students and/or Capitol Hill residents who value location over personal space. And is it us or is the shower actually kinda huge?


In Ravenna, you'll find a 510 sq. ft. studio in Varsity Apartments available to rent. Nice, newer building not far from Cowen Park or Green Lake. Washer & dryer in the unit, which isn't something you find in too many spaces this size (or at this price).


Finally, we head to the South Slope of Queen Anne where this 336 sq. ft. studio is available for $995/mo. Residences inside the 1909-built Corona building include large double hung Victorian windows, massive window bays, natural hard wood floors, abundant natural light and large walk-in closets. Puts you right around the corner from Seattle Center as well.
