Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in the Seattle area. We cast our net a little wider this week found six listings within $100 of today's price: $900.
In Beacon Hill, this microstudio is just 168 square feet—but the kitchen appliances only consist of a mini-fridge and a microwave. Rent is $895 a month. (Those who want a full kitchen in this building pay a full $1,395.)
Go much farther south to Tacoma and get a little more space, 500 square feet, plus a bedroom, a large balcony, and a downtown view—not to mention a kitchen. The building is pet-friendly, too. Rent is $925 a month.
Less far south (but farther from the Sounder train), this one-bedroom in Federal Way is a little smaller at 432 square feet, but features access to a pool, a gym, a dog park, and a playground. Rent here is $900 a month on the dot.
In Everett, $889 rents you one bedroom and either a patio or a wood-burning fireplace, depending on the unit, plus covered parking. Shared amenities include a gym, a pool, a basketball court, and a picnic area.
In the U District, you can still rent a 400-square-foot studio with hardwood floors and a full kitchen and bathroom for $925 a month. It has cute vintage features like built-ins, but no pets are allowed.
Take a ferry ride to Bremerton and find two whole bedrooms in a 725-square-foot, pet-friendly apartment. Rent here is $943 per month.
