What $2,200/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. We found out yesterday that median rent for a 2-BR in Seattle is currently $2,200/mo. So, let's find out exactly what that looks like. You tell us which lease you'd sign.


We begin in First Hill where we can get a 1,133 sq. ft. 2-BR at Landes Apartments. Directly in-between downtown and Capitol Hill, we're talking prime location for a lot of folks. The pet-friendly building even offers a mobile groomer that provides door-to-door service.


Next up, it's off to Whittier Heights where you can find a remodeled, retro 2-BR in a 1940s duplex along 8th Avenue. Measuring 1,050 sq. ft., the unit includes newer amenities and appliances as well as storage and a fenced backyard. For the renter who wants to be away from the hub-bub, this might make a solid choice.


Now we head over to U District where TraVigne on Eleventh Avenue has a 938 sq. ft. 2-BR available. Slightly smaller than the other spaces, these units boast big windows and bigger views. There's also a nice rooftop deck to hang out, BBQ and get a tan. Not a bad spot for commuters and/or really well-off UW students.


It's on to East Queen Anne where a 1,001 sq. ft. 2-BR at Cascade Terrace awaits. Depending on where it is, you might get a nice Seattle skyline view from your patio. Regardless, you do get energy-efficient kitchen appliances, spacious living areas and Berber carpeting along with plenty of building amenities.


Finally we go down to Alki where you can get a 1,020 sq. ft. 2-BR close to the water. The lead photo is a bit ominous if you ask us, but the interior shots reveal a nice fireplace, vaulted ceilings and private deck from which you hopefully get some of those water views. The place looks a little worn on the outside, but, all part of the Alki experience.
