Seattle rent comparison: What $900 rents you right now

It’s mostly studios

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in the Seattle area. We've found five listings within $100 of today's price: $900.

Via Craigslist

In West Seattle, this top-floor studio in a converted house has a vaulted ceiling loft to separate your living area from your sleeping area. It’s just a block from Alki Beach and rents for $950—but doesn’t allow pets.

In the Central District, this itty-bitty microstudio—164 square feet—with floor-to-ceiling windows is furnished with a bed. The apartment itself only has a mini-fridge, a sink, and a microwave, but the building has a larger common kitchen. There’s also a common roof deck. It rents for $950 a month.

This Greenwood studio with a private entrance makes up for its being in a basement with cheery yellow wood paneling, and has a pretty gigantic kitchen for a 300 square foot apartment. It allows pets, has a veggie garden outside, and rents for $850 a month.

While the listing doesn’t give a specific square footage, this furnished microstudio in Capitol Hill looks like it’s among the smallest of the small. It doesn’t have a full kitchen, or even a full-size fridge, and it’s unclear whether there’s a larger kitchen onsite. It rents for $950, but utilities are included.

This basement one-bedroom in a Crown Hill duplex has a fireplace, a yard, and a full 620 square feet of space—which, compared to some of its neighbors on this list, is a lot. It rents for $900 on the dot.
