A one-bedroom in Capitol Hill or a two-bedroom in Madrona?

Via Craigslist

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: $2,200.

Via the Dunn Building

In Capitol Hill, this one-bedroom-ish apartment, available for $2,216 per month, has its own private patio, plus in-unit laundry and access to a rooftop deck with fire pits. It’s an open plan, though, without a full wall between the living area and the bedroom. Pets can come along.

Via Craigslist

Head to the Admiral area in West Seattle and find a full two-bedroom house with a detached garage, a fireplace, hardwood floors, and a full basement available for $2,200 on the dot. While a yard is super-handy, pets can’t come along to use it. BYO washer and dryer.

Ballard also has two bedrooms in this price point—$2,150—but in a brick duplex. That comes with hardwood floors, in-unit laundry, a fireplace, a dishwasher, a bonus room, patio space, and hardwood floors. Pets aren’t allowed here, either.

Via Craigslist

A little more woodsy and off the beaten path in Maple Leaf, another two-bedroom house has hardwood floors, a brick fireplace, vintage built-in cabinetry, and a remodeled kitchen. It has hookups, but no laundry—and like the previous two, it doesn’t allow pets. $2,150 includes yard care.

Via Craigslist

This Madrona triplex has a two-bedroom unit renting for $2,250, including charming vintage details like a bay window, hardwood floors, boxbeam ceilings, and built-in shelves. A private balcony provides outdoor space, and pets are negotiable. Laundry is shared. “No gym, no granite countertops,” reads the listing. “A lovely, old-fashioned home.”

Via Windermere Property Management

Those looking for a third bedroom and an extra bathroom can find this house north of the city limits in Shoreline. It has a colorful paint job—including a pink master bedroom—plus a fireplace; a large, fenced backyard; a big patio; and a washer and dryer. One pet can come along. Rent here is $2,200 even.
