Let’s start in First Hill, where this studio apartment from 1923 is renting for $1,400 per month—complete with hardwood floors; checkered tile in the decently sized, separate kitchen; and a full bath. Pets can come with a deposit (but no pet rent!). The building has underground car storage, but it’s also on multiple transit lines, including the 3, 4, and the streetcar.

Head farther north to the Interlaken area—by the arboretum, east of north Capitol Hill—and find another vintage apartment—this one a one-bedroom in a classic foursquare-style house converted to a triplex. It’s renting for $1,400, and at 790 square feet, it’s sizeable. Car parking’s extra, or take the 43 or 48. No pets are allowed, though.

In West Seattle near the Admiral Junction, half a duplex—one bedroom and 500 square feet—rents for $1,375 per month. The Tudor design keeps some built-ins, and the top-floor location means a vaulted ceiling. It’s along transit (closest to the 55 and 128), and cats can come, too.

This one-bedroom, 516-square-foot corner unit on the border of Roosevelt and Green Lake rents for $1,350 per month, which includes carport parking (although it’s near transit, too). It’s a newer than most others on the list, and has a garbage disposal and a dishwasher—plus a washing machine. No pets are allowed.

In Beacon Hill, this 550-square-foot one-bedroom apartment with its own outside entrance rents for $1,395 per month. The flooring is new, and it has plenty of built-ins, from cabinets to an open closet. It’s along multiple buses and just a block from the light rail, although it comes with assigned parking, too. Pets can come with deposit.
