Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various LA 'hoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Our friends at Zumper have helped us out with five listings within $100 of today's price: $4,000.
↑ Talk about charming! Recently renovated, this lower-level duplex unit in Fairfax has three bedrooms and comes with a fireplace in the living room, a sun room, hardwood floors throughout, a backyard area, a formal dining room, and granite countertops in the kitchen. There's also a garage for your car. What does all this cost? Exactly $4,000.
↑ Most of this 1,248-square-foot Mar Vista rental is bright and shiny, with wood floors and big windows. The shine continues in the kitchen where there's custom tile and stainless steel appliances; the master bathroom has a rain shower, and the backyard's got a mini-orchard with "multiple fruit-bearing trees." The only downside is that even though the two-bedroom house boasts its "HUGE" lot, the landlord's only willing to consider an under-30-pound dog—what gives? Rent is $3,995.
↑ Tucked away in the western end of the Hollywood Hills, this 1,305-square-foot abode has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, skylights, and an eat-in kitchen. There's also a veranda that runs along the entirety of the home which affords some nice views. It appears to have a chandelier on it. Ambiance boost! Rent is $3,950.
↑ This three-bedroom, hilltop Glassell Park home built in 2007 brings to the table "Canadian Maple Hardwood Floors; 8' Douglas Fir Doors and Detailing, Stained Glass Entry," a wet bar, and a fancy kitchen with a Viking stove and stone counters. There's also a "spa tub" in the tiled master bathroom. Measuring just over 2,400 square feet, the home rents for $3,950.
↑ We're guessing from the unit number that this two-bedroom apartment is on the fourth floor of a classy building right at Hollywood and Vine. The fourth floor's a decent place to be, from the looks of things. This unit comes with your own Viking-appointed kitchen, central air and heating, a 24-hour valet, and access to the rooftop deck with striped furniture. Rent is $3,950.
