What $2,200 rents in Seattle right now

A West Seattle house or a First Hill 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: $2,200.

Via Craigslist

Greenlake

This 820-square-foot two-bedroom is part of a courtyard apartment complex, where each home lives like a little cottage surrounding a central common area. In addition to the bedrooms, there’s a little den, storage, or hobby area in the back. It’s just a couple of blocks from Green Lake Park, and has its own laundry machines and no carpet. Pets are allowed, and while it doesn’t have car parking, it does have secure bike parking (and it’s near transit and amenities). Rent is $2,150.

Via Craigslist

Magnolia

On the east slope of Magnolia (where most of the neighborhood’s rentals reside), this pet-friendly apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 850 square feet. It has its own washer and dryer and off-street parking, although it’s right on the 31 and 33 lines. It was remodeled recently with hardwood and slate floors, too. Rent is $2,195 a month.

Via Craigslist

West Seattle

North of Lincoln Park near the Morgan Junction, a whole 850-square-foot house with two bedrooms is renting for $2,150 a month. It’s a 1940s rambler with built-ins, and it comes with a detached garage and a yard—plus, it’s on the C-Line. It has its own laundry facilities, too. Cats are allowed, but not dogs.

Via AMLI

Ballard

In AMLI’s Mark 24 building, this one-bedroom apartment is pretty big—807 square feet—and rents for $2,244 a month. The living area and kitchen are in an open-concept layout typical of new buildings, and it comes with a balcony and a large walk-in closet. Also typical of new, modern buildings, it has a suite of common amenities: a business center and conference room, a fitness area, an off-leash area (pets are allowed!), and a rooftop deck with grills. While you can spring for parking, there’s bike parking—plus nearby transit, including the D Line. (The photos are of a model unit, but it appears to be representative.)

First Hill/Yesler Terrace

In Batik, one of Vulcan’s Yesler Terrace developments, this 693-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment rents for $2,195 a month. There’s an open-concept living area and kitchen, and the unit has its own washer and dryer. Pets are allowed—the building has the standard new-building dog run—and common amenities include a gym, a roof deck, game room, and a reservable space for larger parties. Parking’s available, or it’s right on the First Hill Streetcar line and the 27. (The photos are of a model unit, but again—it appears to be representative.)
