Seattle rent comparison: What $1,100 rents you right now

A Queen Anne microstudio or a normal-size Lake City studio?

Via Vistana

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 Novo

Up in Roosevelt, this 208-square-foot microstudio is renting for $1,150 per month. That comes with a kitchenette, a lot of cabinet storage, free internet, and paid electricity. The roof has a gym and lounge space, and shared kitchens on every floor give more room to cook. Parking’s available in an attached garage, although it’s on bus lines, too; no word on pets.

In Lake City, this more normal-size studio—425 square feet—with a full kitchen and bath in a small building has a kitchen with a skylight and access to a backyard. Pets can come (with an extra deposit), the place comes with parking, and it’s on a corner with multiple bus lines. Rent is $1,075 per month.

On the border of the ID and the CD, this 300-square-foot studio has a full, brightly painted kitchen (with a gas stove!), hardwood floors, and a full bath. It comes with a parking spot, but it’s also along plentiful transit, including a streetcar. Dogs can’t come, but cats are okay. Rent is $1,095 per month.

Via Nook

In Fremont, this itty-bitty, 191-square-foot studio has a built-in desk to save space, and manages to fit a two-burner cooktop in the kitchenette. There’s no car parking, but it’s right on a couple of bus lines—and comes with dedicated bike parking. Rent is $1,125 per month.

Via Vistana

In lower Queen Anne/Uptown, the smallest studio on this roundup—190 square feet—rents for $1,095 per month. It at least includes a balcony (that is small, but appears to be real) and a little kitchenette. Shared kitchens and laundry rooms are on each floor, too. There’s no parking, although it’s close to transit and walkable to downtown, and no word on pets.

This 300-square-foot studio in a vintage building in the Wallingford/Phinney Ridge area, just south of Woodland Park, has hardwood floors, a full kitchen, and a full bath. One of the windows opens up to a fire escape, too. It doesn’t come with parking, and it’s about a five-minute walk to transit. Up to two cats can come along. Rent is $1,145 per month.
