What $1,250/Month Can Rent You in Seattle Right Now

New, 2 comments

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 decided to find out what $2,000/month can get you in Bellevue if you're looking for a 1-BR. You tell us which lease you'd sign.


Let's begin in Olympic Hills where ARRAY has a 706 square-foot 1-BR for $1,250/month. The building is new and colorful and full of the usual amenities you'd find in newer complexes like this. A good spot for commuters, not as much for those looking for city life.


Next we're off to Capitol Hill where Summit Arms Apartments has a 600 square-foot 1-BR for $1,250/month. We're actually kinda surprised to get that much square footage based on what we usually see out of the neighborhood. It's an older building and the view is a lovely brick wall but if you're looking for a vintage living experience (and can't afford a modern one) this might be a good fit.


Next up we head to Bitter Lake where The Nelson Apartments has a 718 square-foot 1-BR for $1,250/month. Not too new, not too old, units here feature fully equipped kitchens with frost-free refrigerators, hardwood floors and electric fireplaces. Another place for when commuters fit more than city folk.


Now it's down to Gatewood in West Seattle where Hill Crest Apartments has a 600 square-foot 1-BR for $1,250/month. It is currently on wait list but in the meantime you can see it's a straight-forward apartment in a straight-forward complex. A quieter West Seattle lifestyle can be found here.


Finally we end up in First Hill where The Starlight has a 400 square-foot 1-BR available for $1,250/month. The smallest of all the units we've seen, the pet-friendly offering includes a new fridge, new stove and new hot water heater. It's also a prime location for those looking to be in the middle of things and live in a smaller, sleeker apartment.
