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: $2,700.

Via Craigslist

In South Lake Union, $2,750 will rent you a one-bedroom loft, one of twelve in the adaptive reuse building at 325 Westlake. It boasts 17-foot ceilings (and windows to match), handsome built-ins, a master bathroom and a powder room, and in-unit laundry. Tenants share a roof deck. It has secure bike parking, but not car parking, although it’s pretty centrally located. Both dogs and cats are okay.

Via Craigslist

In the muddy area around north Capitol Hill, Interlaken, and Montlake—near the Washington Park Arboretum—this spacious two-bedroom apartment with hardwoods rents for $2,695 a month. It has a separate living and dining room, plus a fireplace, laundry, and a dishwasher. There’s an attached garage (parking is $75 extra), or it’s on the 43 and 48. Dogs and cats are fine, and basement storage is free.

Via Craigslist

Head to West Seattle for a cute, blue, two-bedroom house renting for $2,695 a month. Pets are allowed, making the fenced backyard extra-handy, and a detached garage adds extra space for hobbies (or cars, if that’s what you’re into). It’s right on the weekday commuter 57 line, and not too far of a walk to more plentiful transit on California. Bonus: two bathrooms make for a more harmonious household.

Via Craigslist

Interbay has this one-bedroom live-work unit—complete with a storefront-like entrance—available for $2,660 a month. It has a lot of the standard trappings of new, luxury construction, including in-unit laundry, a dishwasher, USB ports, and a shared roof deck. It’s on the D line, or parking is available. Pets can come, but are subject to both a deposit and pet rent.

Via Craigslist

Finally, in Wallingford, a classic houseboat by Gas Works Park rents for $2,695 a month, including furniture, cable, Wi-Fi, and utilities. It has two beds—a loft and a Murphy bed—plus an almost-full kitchen, a grill on the back deck, and a roof deck. It comes with parking, but it’s also right on the Burke-Gilman trail and transit. No pets, though.
