A one-bedroom in West Seattle or a Belltown studio?

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: $1,200.

Via Craigslist

In Eastlake, this studio in a fourplex converted from a Craftsman house—complete with a cute mailbox—is renting for $1,195. That includes 300 square feet of space (small, but not the smallest), plenty of kitchen storage, a Murphy bed, and stacked in-unit laundry. All the units share a small yard maintained by the owner, and pets can come along. It doesn’t have parking, but it’s a couple of blocks from the 70.

This corner studio in Phinney Ridge has plenty of counter space, a walk-in closet, some vintage details like archways, and cute tilework in the full bathroom. The living room has a built-in Murphy bed to save space. Rent is $1,150, and cats can come, too. It’s on the 5 line.

Via the Molloy

In the U District literally right next to the University of Washington, this itty-bitty studio—188 square feet—still manages to fit a full kitchen, although counter space is lacking. A walk-in closet and bathroom storage help save space, and parquet floors are a nice touch. Rent is $1,175 per month; cats can come, and parking is available for extra (plus, it’s right on a ton of bus lines).

Via Craigslist

In West Seattle’s Admiral District, this 590-square-foot one-bedroom apartment has off-street parking (and is close-ish to buses) and a dishwasher, but no pets are allowed. Rent is $1,245 per month.

Via Craigslist

This little Fremont studio is nestled below a Craftsman house, and includes a full kitchen, a three-quarter bathroom, a little patio area, and about 350 square feet of space. Pets are allowed on a case-by-case basis with a deposit. No parking is included, but it’s on the 5. Rent is $1,250 per month.

Via Craigslist

In a vintage brick building in Belltown, this 420-square-foot studio with a full bathroom, a kitchen with an eating nook, and a walk-in closet is renting for $1,195 per month, with pets allowed. There’s no parking, but being in Belltown means being on a lot of major bus lines.
