Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. Today we find out what $1,200/month can get you in Seattle. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Let's begin all the way up in Bitter Lake where you can get a 675 square-foot 1-BR at Northline for $1,200/mo. The layout feels fresh for what could otherwise be a fairly generic apartment. Funny what a couple steps from the kitchen to the living room can do.
↑ Next we head down to North Delridge where The Vue offers a 430 square-foot studio for $1,195/mo. While the space is small, the big windows ensure a lot of light while the dark wood floors give it a warmth that you might not have been expecting. Unit inside an LEED Certified Gold building and close to a lot of West Seattle amenities.
↑ Next up in Beacon Hill is a 1-BR at Beacon Flats on Beacon Hill asking $1,195/mo. Square footage not included but we'll guess in the 600-700 range. Looks like a nicely renovated unit with nice hardwoods and modern kitchen & bathroom amenities.
↑ Now we go back to West Seattle where The Spruce offers a 360 square-foot studio in The Junction for $1,225/mo. Why consider a smaller space? Well you get one month free for starters. After that, there's plenty of building amenities and the location is prime for easy access to Junction nightlife.
↑ Finally we end up in Greenwood where we can get a 475 square-foot studio at Guinevere Apartments for $1,200/mo. Definitely a bit older in terms of look & feel, though it's still very light & bright. The building appears to have gotten an overall upgrade and the location is fairly central for the neighborhood.
