What $3,000 a month rents in Seattle

Craftsman houses and luxury apartments

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: $3,000.

Capitol Hill

Let’s start just a few blocks west of the Capitol Hill Library, where $3,000 a month gets you three bedrooms fit into 950 square feet in an adorable vintage building. A large, colorful kitchen has plenty of cabinet space, and hardwood floors are the norm throughout, along with what appears to be original millwork. Cats are allowed (but no dogs), and it’s close to transit (and not too far from light rail).

Via Craigslist


In Bryant—adjacent to Ravenna and Wedgwood—$2,997 gets you two bedrooms, but in a whole house, with large decks, a gas fireplace, a full basement, and an attached garage, plus a fenced backyard. Pets are negotiable, including both cats and dogs (again: fenced backyard!). If you’d prefer to use that garage for something else, it’s right on the 64 and 65 lines, too. Plus: It has its own laundry.

Via Dexter Hayes


Just northwest of South Lake Union on Dexter, this one-bedroom (plus a bedroom-sized office) townhouse unit in a new apartment building is renting for $2,995. Large windows on both sides bring in trees on one end and the lake on the other. It has an extra powder room on the main floor in addition to the full bath upstairs, too. Pets can come, but there’s both a deposit and pet rent. Assigned garage parking is available for extra, but it’s right on a bike lane and bus routes. Photos appear to be of a model unit.

Via Craigslist


For a very classic, spacious vintage apartment, check out this two-bedroom (but 1,600 square feet!) apartment in Leschi for $2,995 a month, with abundant formal gathering spaces and period details. The living room is in one massive bay window and has a fireplace—and one bedroom has its own bay window nook. Appliances are new (the kitchen looks significantly more modern than the rest of the place), but the bathroom still has a clawfoot tub. Pets can come, and there’s off-street parking available.

Via Nolo

Pioneer Square

Finally, head just north of the stadiums for this new-construction two-bedroom apartment in the Nolo—part of the Stadium Place development—with an industrial look and 1,146 square feet for $3,019 a month. That comes with a large living area, two full bathrooms, air conditioning, and its own washer and dryer. Shared amenities include a gym and yoga room, a rooftop deck with views inside Centurylink Field, a theater, and two dog runs. Garage parking is available, but it’s right on multiple bus lines and light rail.
