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 $1,000/month can get you around Seattle. Boundaries are set by realtors. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ We begin in The Junction where Lofts at the Junction is offering a 302-square-foot studio for $1,005/month. The unit is very skinny, very white, and very bright. You better be cool with having a toilet across from your kitchen sink. Looks like they're leaving some potential loft possibilities on the table but either way this is a place for the West Seattle commuter who's cool with small spaces.
↑ Next up we head to Crown Hill where there's a 518-square-foot 1-BR asking $975/month at 1207 NW 92nd Street. It's a bigger unit than the previous one but the building amenities are bit less modern, shall we say? You better like carpet and wood cause you'll see plenty here. While you do get your own bedroom, you do have to share the laundry machines.
↑ Now we go to First Hill where Zindorf Apartments offers a 400-square-foot studio for $990/month. Maybe it's just really good photos but this unit looks especially cool thanks to stained hardwoods, a window cove, and what appears to be an updated kitchen. The layout also provides some separation from the living/sleeping area and the entrance, which is a nice bonus to make you feel like it's bigger than it is.
↑ Let's try Madison Valley next where there's a rather unique one-bedroom atop the 2900 E Madison Street building asking $1,000/month. The coved walls, curious built-ins and strange side rooms divided by curtains make us want to see what's going on. It's gonna need some TLC but then again that's why they're asking $1,000.
↑ Finally we end up in Capitol Hill where LIV at East John has a 260-square-foot studio for $1,005/month. If you're wondering what that feels like, notice how the couch faces the refrigerator. Still, it looks modern and bright and if it's important to live close to where the action is, you could do much worse than here.
