Seattle rent comparison: What $1,448 rents you right now

A studio in Eastlake or a one-bedroom in West Seattle?

Via Craigslist

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 and found six listings within $100 of today's price: $1,448, Seattle’s median rent according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Via Pine Street Apartments

In Capitol Hill, this one-bedroom apartment in a renovated turn-of-the-century building rents for $1,490, although none of the period details show up inside. No pets are allowed, but it’s on the top floor and has 625 square feet of space.

Via Medora

This pet-friendly Roosevelt studio has a sliding-glass door that opens to a small patio, plus in-unit laundry. Shared amenities include a roof deck, barbecues, a pet-washing station, and a 24-hour gym. Rent here is $1,450 per month.

Via Craigslist

For two bedrooms at this price point look to North Admiral, where this 850-square-foot apartment in a six-unit building is renting for $1,495. That includes in-unit laundry and one off-street parking stall. Pets can’t come, though.

Via Illumina

In Eastlake, this pet-friendly, 462-square-foot studio also has a den—not technically a bedroom, but nobody’s stopping you from sleeping in it. It has hardwood floors and in-unit laundry, and the building shares a large roof deck. Rent here is $1,450.

Via Craigslist

Head to Fremont for this 650-square-foot one-bedroom apartment that comes with a patio and covered parking. It’s a corner unit, and it allows cats. Rent is $1,450.

Via Craigslist

This one-bedroom apartment in a quieter part of Ballard near the Locks features a patio and in-unit laundry. It seems to have an Old Ballard vibe, too; the listing says, “live in Ballard without having to be hip, just be happy.” Rent here is $1,425; cats are allowed.
