Let’s start in Greenwood, where this two-bedroom apartment in a midcentury building (with a little butterfly roof!) rents for $1,975. The place is relatively spacious—1100 square feet—and has a large balcony, a dishwasher, a fireplace, and garage parking (although it’s along the 45 and near the 5, too). Cats are allowed with a deposit.

Via Craigslist

In Capitol Hill, $1,995 rents you a super-adorable (but not tiny: 699 square feet) vintage one-bedroom apartment, with original hardwoods, plus period millwork and radiators. It’s had some updates, though, including in-unit laundry and a dishwasher. Underground parking is extra, but it’s on the 47, and not too long of a walk to other options. Both cats and dogs are OK to come along, too.

In West Seattle, this two-bedroom apartment with a fireplace, balcony, in-unit laundry, and dishwasher is renting for $2,000 a month—parking included. Being near the Junction means it’s close to plentiful transit, too, and walkable to errands. There’s no word on pets, though, which might be the catch here.

For $2,050 a month, you can rent someone’s luxury, 18th-floor condo on the cusp of downtown and Belltown, with one bedroom and a view of Puget Sound—and a balcony to take it in. Resident amenities include a gym and a swimming pool. There’s no parking, but like, you’re already downtown, just outside a major bus stop and walkable to light rail. No pets allowed, though.

Via Craigslist

In Madrona (just a few blocks from Lake Washington!), this two-bedroom apartment nestled in a woodsy courtyard rents for $1,975 a month. It has a washer and dryer and dishwasher in-unit, plus a shared roof deck with barbecues and pretty patios in the courtyard. Take the 11, or parking’s available for $100 a month extra. No pets, though.
