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 around town with the added caveat that you're looking for a 2-BR place. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ We begin in First Hill where Landes is offering an 800-square-foot 2-BR for $2,000/month. It's the "other" thing in Seattle named for Bertha Landes. While you get a decent amount of room here the setup does feel "open" or "urban" as they put it. Good news for dog owners, they include a mobile groomer that provides door to door service.
↑ Next we head to Belltown where Moda has a 587-square-foot 2-BR available for $1,998/month. Now that sounds pretty snug for a two-bedroom but we suppose it depends on the layout. They tease a two-level apartment in the photos but don't take our word for it. If location trumps apartment size, this place comes out ahead.
↑ Now we go to Magnolia where you can find a 955-square-foot 2-BR at Overlook at Magnolia for $1,985/month. Units here include balconies, updated appliances, skylights, fireplaces and vaulted ceilings. Downstairs, full amenities including a fitness center, jacuzzi and DVD rental library (if you're still using DVDs).
↑ Now we head away from apartments and check out a 1,000-square-foot home in Ravenna that's renting for $1,995/month. Plenty of brick to go around in this 1910 home. The larger bedroom even has a brick bed nook, so try to call dibs on that.
↑ Finally we end up in West Seattle's Gatewood where a 1,050-square-foot house is available for $1,995/month. As a bonus, it also comes with a cottage out back to be used as a home office or studio. There's even a private yard to boot.
