Seattle rent comparison: What $1380 rents you right now

A studio downtown, a cottage in Shoreline

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in the Seattle area. We've found six listings within $100 of today's price: $1,380, or Apartment List’s estimate for median one-bedroom rent.

Via Mercedes Apartments

While the building’s not much to look at from the outside, this one-bedroom apartment in lower Queen Anne from 1920 has a cute deco archway and hardwood floors on the inside. It rents for $1,365 per month.

Via Minnie Flats Apartments

In the Denny Triangle area, this new-construction, pet-friendly studio apartment is small—293 square feet—but comes with access to a shared roof deck with Space Needle views. It has limited kitchen facilities, but does have a small stovetop. This one’s going for $1,410 per month.

Via Novo Seattle

This brand-new Roosevelt studio is equally small, but the space is broken up by a sleeping loft with room for a queen bed. It does not, however, have a private, full kitchen, just a microwave and a fridge. It has access to a shared full kitchen, a courtyard, and a fitness center, and rents for $1,350 per month.

Via the Luxe at Meridian

In Northgate by North Seattle College, this pet-friendly, one-bedroom with a private balcony, a fireplace, and laundry is renting for $1,399 per month. Shared amenities include a heated pool, a fitness center, and barbecues.

Via Summit Arms

This vintage, 600-square-foot one-bedroom in Capitol Hill’s Summit Arms has high ceilings, a clawfoot tub, and a bay window—with, unfortunately, up-close views of the building next door. It’s pet-friendly and is going for $1,350 per month.

Via Craigslist

In Shoreline’s Richmond Beach neighborhood, this 500-square-foot studio cottage is going for $1,350 per month. It shares a half acre with a house, but doesn’t allow pets. The main area has hardwood floors—and walls to match—plus a cozy fireplace.
