A Capitol Hill studio or a Rainier Valley one-bedroom?

Via Seattle Property Management Associates

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: $1,100.

Via Craigslist

In the International District, this itty-bitty two-bedroom is extremely no-frills (except for that dishwasher!), but it’s going for $1,135 per month. Parking’s available for an extra $195 a month; no word on pets.

Via Craigslist

On edge of Wallingford just west of Interstate 5, this studio is pretty well-sized—550 square feet—and has a full kitchen and its own outside entrance. Pets are allowed, too, but there are no laundry services at all, so you’d be laundromat-dependent. Rent is $1,095 per month.

On the other side of the interstate in the University District, this smaller, cat-friendly studio has more vertical space than anything, with high ceilings (and high cabinetry to go with them) and a lofted bed. It has a small kitchenette with a stovetop but no oven. Bamboo floors and big windows decorate the small space, and internet is included in the $1,050 rent.

Via Craigslist

In Capitol Hill in the Pike/Pine corridor, there’s somehow still a studio available for $1,095. It’s 300 square feet, but has a full bathroom and a ton of kitchen cabinet space. There is, naturally, no parking associated with the place, and it doesn’t allow pets.

Via Abbey Park Apartments

In Eastlake, this adorable corner-unit studio has 500 square feet of space, including a full kitchen that’s slightly set apart from the rest of the apartment by a breakfast bar. Cats can come along, too. Rent here is $1,100 a month on the dot.

Via Craigslist

In the Rainier Valley just off Rainier Avenue, this basement one-bedroom apartment—half of a duplex—is renting for $1,100 per month. That includes a full kitchen, but only a three-quarter bathroom, plus hardwood floors and new (dark-colored!) carpet. No pets are allowed, though.
