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 $1,000/month can get you in Seattle. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ Let's start in First Hill with the 450 square-foot studio at the Paul Revere for $1,000/mo. The building dates back to the 1920's but the unit itself looks like it's in good shape. Nice hardwoods and the bathroom looks updated. Location-wise, you're pretty close to a lot as well.
↑ Next, we head up to Victory Heights where you can get a 625 square-foot 1-BR for $1,000/mo. This one doesn't look quite as well maintained but you do get more space and it's a decent North Seattle location for commuters.
↑ Next up we go to U-District where a 500 square-foot studio at 5234 University Way NE is available for $995/mo. It's a top floor unit in a 1929 brick building so you're getting the true old school experience. The kitchen is vintage cute but don't expect too many (or any) modern amenities.
↑ Now it's over to Queen Anne where The Queensborough has a 435 square-foot studio for $1,015/mo. It's an old building and it shows. The unit does feature carpet and there are a bunch of notable building amenities (garage parking, rooftop deck, security systems).
↑ Finally we go back to First Hill where Zindorf Apartments has a 400 square-foot studio available for $990/mo. The unit looks really well taken care of (hopefully it's not just the model unit). Unit comes with dishwasher and may include a clawfoot tub and parking.
