What $1,100 rents in Seattle right now

How are you feeling about microstudios?

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: $1,100.

Via Craigslist

Eastlake

Just south of University Bridge—so a pretty easy walk to the University of Washington—this 150-square-foot microstudio is renting for $1,062 a month. It has its own bathroom and a kitchenette with a mini-fridge and a microwave, and it shares some of the standard new-apartment amenities with the rest of the building, like a roof deck, barbecues, and a media room. There’s bike parking, but no car parking (it’s on the 70), and up to two cats and/or dogs can come.

First Hill

This cute, vintage studio on Madison has a walk-in closet and 500 square feet of space for $1,150 a month. The kitchen, which has classic checkerboard tile, is set aside from the rest of the place so you’re not sleeping next to the fridge. It’s in a transit-rich, downtown-adjacent neighborhood, but there’s zoned street parking in case you need it. Pets are allowed, too.

Shoreline

Just north of the city limits, there’s this 750-square-foot, mother-in-law apartment with one bedroom for $1,150 a month. Despite the larger size, it has just a kitchenette—a cooktop, microwave, sink, and smaller fridge—but there’s a shared vegetable garden and fire pit out back. There’s off-street parking, although it’s close to the E Line. No word on pets.

Magnolia

Just over the West Dravus Street Overpass, this one-bedroom half of a duplex is going for $1,150 a month. It’s small-ish, at 500 square feet, but in a refreshing change from a lot of this list it has a large, full kitchen. It’s in a more transit-rich area than much of Magnolia—the D Line is just on the other side of the overpass, and it’s right on the 31 and 32—but it comes with off-street parking, too. The pet policy isn’t specified.

Capitol Hill

This Apodment right by the light rail station almost kind of has a bedroom—there’s a built-in sleeping loft that isn’t just a loft bed—but otherwise it’s typical microstudio construction, with a kitchenette and 224 square feet of wiggle room. It does have shared kitchens that come with their own equipment for larger cooking projects, though. Rent is $1,080, but only for the first five months (after that, it jumps significantly to $1,350). No pets.
