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: $3,000.

In West Seattle near Camp Long, this three-bedroom house is renting for $3,050 per month. It includes hardwood floors, a non-operable fireplace (throw some candles in there!), a yard with lawn service, and laundry facilities. There’s an attached garage and a driveway for vehicles, or it’s right along the 21 line. One dog—and no other animal—is allowed (subject to approval), and pet rent is a brutal $50 extra.

On the west slope of Queen Anne (near Interbay), this three-bedroom house is filled with stained glass and features hardwood floors, two fireplaces, and a washer and dryer, plus a large deck. A patio out back also includes gardening space, which the tenant is responsible for maintaining. There’s parking in a two-vehicle carport, or it’s right on the 1 route. Rent is $2,995 per month.

Via Publix

In the International District just across from the transit station, this 1,120-square-foot, three-bedroom corner apartment is renting for $3,021 per month. That includes a dishwasher and in-unit laundry. Pets are allowed (with breed restrictions) with both a deposit and $25 a month extra in pet rent. Parking is available for an extra $250 a month, but it’s literally right across the street from the transit station and light rail.

Up in Ballard, this adorable Tudor home with a fenced backyard (with yard care included) rents for $2,995 per month. It features hardwood floors and historic details like archways and built-ins. It has four true bedrooms, plus an extra nook in the finished attic. It has parking in an attached garage, but it’s a block from the 15 and D Line, too. No pets are allowed, but it does have both a dishwasher and laundry.

In Eastlake, this new-construction, Built Green, two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is going for $2,995 per month. It has high ceilings, air conditioning, and hardwood floors, plus a balcony. It has both laundry facilities and a dishwasher inside. There’s parking for both bikes (free) and cars ($200 a month), and it’s near the 70 line. Dogs and cats are okay, but it costs $25 extra a month in pet rent.

Via the Wave

In Pioneer Square just north of Sodo and the stadiums, luxury building the Wave has a 1,232-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment available for $2,992 a month. It, of course, comes with perks like a dishwasher and in-unit laundry inside, plus big closets and two bathrooms. Pets are allowed, and parking’s available—or it’s very close to a lot of transit, including light rail, and within walking distance to anywhere downtown. The building’s rooftop common area boasts a view of inside Centurylink Field, providing a free way to watch Seahawks and Sounders games.
