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. 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.
