Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in Seattle. We found five listings within $100 of today’s price: $1,900.
A 541-square-foot studio in Ballard at least comes with a closed-off sleeping area and a decently sized private patio for $1,897 per month. It also has high ceilings and a big, floor-to-ceiling window. In-unit laundry doesn’t hurt, either. It allows both cats and dogs, has garage parking available, and is right along multiple bus lines.
This upper Queen Anne spot is in a basement, but it has two bedrooms, a fireplace, and 900 square feet of space. It’s full of wood paneling, which may or may not be your thing, plus built-ins. It’s part of a 1930s triplex and has its own outside entrance, plus an off-street parking spot (but it’s just a couple of blocks from multiple bus lines). Pets are allowed.
In Capitol Hill, this newer, 645-square-foot one-bedroom in the Chloe rents for $1,899 per month. That includes floor-to-ceiling windows, a real bedroom with a walk-in closet, in-unit laundry. Both dogs and cats are allowed, and shared amenities include “multiple pet play spaces” in addition to the standard roof deck and barbecues. Parking’s available in an attached garage, but it’s also close to transit (and not too bad of a walk downtown).
Head to Fremont for a ground-floor, one-bedroom condo being rented out for $1,850 a month. It looks mostly no-frills on the inside, but it has an extremely cute patio out back. A parking spot is included, although it’s also along transit lines, as well as laundry facilities in-unit. No word on pets.
On the very east edge of Greenwood, find a large (1220 square feet!), ground-floor, two-bedroom apartment for $1,895 per month. It has hardwood floors in the living area and a huge, fully fenced, private patio out back. A parking spot is included in the rent, although it’s along to transit, too. Laundry is shared; the listing doesn’t specify anything about pets.
