Via Post Alley Court

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: $2,000.

Via Craigslist

In West Seattle near Westwood Village, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,000-square-foot apartment is renting for $1,995 per month. It includes a wood-burning fireplace and a large balcony, plus a utility room with a washer and dryer. The building includes a lounge, a courtyard, and shared garden space. It includes a parking spot, but it’s also on the 21 route. No word on pets.

Via Amli

This South Lake Union studio with a private sleeping area includes in-unit laundry and 578 square feet of space. Shared amenities include an off-leash area, a “cooking lab” with room to brew beer, a conference room, a theater, and a gym. Pets can come along, too, and parking’s available in an attached garage (although transit is plentiful and SLU is centrally-located). Rent here is $2,001 per month.

Via Vesper

On the border of First Hill and Capitol Hill, this lofted apartment is pretty big a one-bedroom—747 square feet—and includes an extra half bathroom (for a total of one and a half), in-unit laundry, and a deck. Both cats and dogs are allowed, and parking’s available in an attached garage—although it’s also along transit and close to downtown. A gym and a rooftop terrace are shared with the other residents. Rent is $2,014 per month.

In Madison Park, just two blocks from Lake Washington, this two-bedroom, 890-square-foot condo in a 1950s building is renting for $1,995 per month. It has a large bathroom and a recently remodeled kitchen; pets aren’t allowed, though. No word on parking, but it’s right on the 11.

Downtown along Western Avenue, this one-bedroom, 517-square-foot apartment is renting for $1,998 per month. That comes with a private patio—although there’s also a shared roof deck for outdoor space. It also has in-unit laundry, and pets can come, too. The parking situation isn’t specified, but it’s downtown so transit will take you pretty much anywhere.

Up in Bitter Lake—just across the street from Bitter Lake Playfield, which lines the lake itself—this two-bedroom condo is renting for $1,950 per month. The unit has a fireplace, laundry, and a dishwasher, and comes with a reserved parking space. No pets are allowed, though.
