What $1,400 rents in Seattle right now

An energy-efficient studio or a vintage one-bedroom?

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: $1,400.

Via Craigslist

Fremont

$1,350 doesn’t get you a lot of space in this new-construction studio—just 210 square feet—but it does give you three personal solar panels with the potential to cover (or at least lessen) the power bill. The kitchenette mimics a full kitchen, with a cooktop and a microwave that doubles as a convection oven. Residents share a patio space with grills, and it comes with enclosed bike storage (and it’s on the main drag of the neighborhood, which gives it close transit proximity). No word on pets.

Via Craigslist

Queen Anne

In upper Queen Anne—just partway up the big hill—a one-bedroom apartment with hardwood floors and tons of vintage details rents for $1,395 a month. Areas are separated by archways and paned-glass doors, complemented by hardwood floors, original moulding, and radiator. At 700 square feet, it fits in a decently sized kitchen and a full bath, too. Garage parking is available for extra, or it’s right on a few bus lines. No pets are allowed.

Green Lake

On the very north end of Green Lake—the part off Aurora, but just two blocks from the lake itself—a one-bedroom apartment rents for $1,365 a month. It’s in an older building, and gets steam heat from a radiator, and retains some period details, like kitchen cabinetry and bathroom tiling (plus some updated fixtures). Residents share a side yard with tables and chairs. Parking’s available (it’s on the E line, too), but pets aren’t allowed.

Via Craigslist

Greenwood

Find another one-bedroom in Greenwood, where this apartment in a midcentury building rents for $1,450 a month, private balcony and all. It’s right on the 5 and 355, but it comes with parking, too—and cats can come. At 850 square feet, it’s also the biggest apartment on the list this week.

Via Craigslist

Delridge

Out in West Seattle, this later-construction one-bedroom is part of a complex with a dog park (not just a rooftop dog run!) and a pool. The 650-square-foot apartment itself has a wood-burning fireplace, a private patio, and in-unit laundry, plus a dining area separate from the kitchen. Pets are allowed at this one (although breed limits could be a thing) and covered parking is available (although the nearby bus is set to become a BRT line).
