What $1,800 rents in Seattle right now

Apartments in Capitol Hill, First Hill, and more

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in Seattle. We found five listings within $100 of today’s price: $1,800.

A dotted line. In the middle, there’s an animation of a heart alternating with a dollar sign.

We’ll start in a weird corner of North Queen Anne/Interbay, just south of the Ballard Bridge, with this 800-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment for $1,800—complete with a view of the Ship Canal from the top-floor balcony. No pets are allowed, but it has in-unit laundry, a dishwasher, and garage parking (and it’s close to the Rapidride D).

In First Hill, this large (750 square feet), vintage one-bedroom with giant windows and hardwood floors rents for $1,795 per month. Pets can come (with deposit), and it’s just on the other side of I-5 from downtown—and close to transit. Vintage touches, like thick moulding, archways, and some kitchen finishes, have stuck around.

$1,800 in the Roosevelt/Green Lake area will get you a homey, 1000-square-foot two bedroom with its own entrance, huge closets, and a dishwasher in a smallish building. Off-street parking is free, but pets aren’t allowed. It’s walking distance to Green Lake Park, too.

This two-bedroom, two-bathroom, corner unit in Magnolia by Magnolia Manor Park rents for $1,755, and includes a giant balcony, a dishwasher and a decent amount of counter and closet space. Pets can come, parking is available, and it’s on the 24 line.

Head to Capitol Hill for a two-bedroom apartment renting for $1,795 a month—a squeal of a deal for the neighborhood. One of the two—count ‘em, two—bathrooms has a clawfoot tub, and much of the trim and some finishes are still there. Pets can come with a deposit, and it’s right on the 11 (and walkable to light rail).
