Seattle rent comparison: What $1,900 rents you right now

An SLU studio or a Greenwood two-bedroom?

Via Craigslist

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in Seattle. We found six listings within $100 of today’s price: $1,900.


In South Lake Union, find a 487-square-foot studio with added loft space for $1,859 per month. What it lacks in a bedroom it makes up for in a large, private patio leading to a private, outside entrance. It includes in-unit laundry, plus access to a suite of new-construction common amenities: a woodworking room, a clubroom, and a larger, outdoor patio. Pets can come, too. Although the apartment is near plentiful transit, garage parking is also available. (The photo appears to be of a similar apartment and not the unit itself.)

In Capitol Hill, this one-bedroom—a real one—plus den is renting for $1,924 a month. It has 703 square feet of space, hardwood floors, in-unit laundry, and a thin balcony. Shared space includes a roof deck, a fancier kitchen, and a 24-hour gym. Garage parking is available, or it’s right on the 11 and close to other buses and light rail. Pets are allowed.

Via Domaine

In Westlake just east of Aurora, this second-floor, one-bedroom apartment is renting for $1,902 per month. That includes a large deck, 740 square feet of space, floor-to-ceiling windows, and in-unit laundry. Cats and dogs can come, and car storage is available (but it’s right between Aurora and Dexter, making bus access relatively easy). Looking out over the hillside means Lake Union views.

On the edge of Magnolia by Interbay, this 900-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment is renting for $1,895 per month. A recent remodel added hardwood floors and some new finishes, and the place has both in-unit laundry and a dishwasher. A small, private deck also comes with. It’s pretty close to a few transit lines, but there’s also a carport space. No pets allowed.

Up around Greenwood and Crown Hill, this two-bedroom apartment also has a giant, private patio with planter boxes. The interior space isn’t too bad either, at 1,000 square feet. Parking’s available, or it’s right by the 28 and 45 lines. No pets are allowed. Rent is $1,950 per month.

This two-bedroom between Mount Baker and Columbia City, a new addition to a Victorian triplex, has hardwood floors, in-unit laundry, and 950 square feet of space—plus an outdoor gardening area. It’s a 20-minute walk to either the Mount Baker or Columbia City light rail station, or catch the 7 or 9 to the train or downtown (there is private car storage, though). The building doesn’t allow pets. Rent is $1,950 per month.
