Seattle rent comparison: What $2,250 rents you right now

An Uptown one-bedroom or a Columbia City townhouse?

Via Exeter

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in the Seattle area. We found six listings within $100 of today’s price: $2,250.

Via Craigslist

In Loyal Heights—north Ballard—$2,250 rents you a full two-bedroom brick house, with two bedrooms, one and a quarter bathrooms, and a backyard. The home has laundry in the basement, hardwood floors, and a couple of fireplaces. Some pets are okay; the home has both off-street parking and a garage.

Via Craigslist

In Capitol Hill, find this recently renovated, two-bedroom, midcentury condo for rent at $2,260 per month. Highlights include hardwood floors and a relatively large kitchen. No word on pets here, but off-street parking is available.

Via Craigslist

This townhouse in the Mount Baker/Columbia City area, in addition to two bedrooms and an office, has some adorable outside patio and garden space. Inside, find a fireplace, colorful interiors, and laundry. An attached garage provides parking or storage, but pets aren’t allowed. Rent here is $2,300 per month.

Via Craigslist

In West Seattle near the Morgan Junction, this bright two-bedroom backyard cottage with shutters and planter boxes rents for $2,250 per month. High ceilings lead to some loft space, and off-street parking and laundry are included. Dogs are welcome.

Via Cora

This lower Queen Anne/Uptown apartment has only one open bedroom for $2,260, but it’s an upper-floor luxury unit with some major city and water views from the living room and glass-lined balcony. Community amenities include many of the usual new construction suspects: a rooftop deck with a dog run, a community lounge with a fireplace, a private dining room for larger gatherings.

Via Exeter

This large First Hill one-bedroom has impeccably preserved vintage details like built-ins, hardwood floors, an archway separating the living and dining areas, and French doors, plus two bathrooms and a private garden area. Pets are allowed and garage parking is available. Rent here is $2,295; the catch is the apartment’s location in the Exeter House, an elegant 1920s building that made kind of a sad transition from beloved senior home to market-rate apartments a couple of years ago.
