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: $1,400.
↑ There are some really cool, retro tile accents in this one-bedroom in West Hollywood. (Pink in the bathroom!) The first-floor unit measures 650 square feet, has laminate wood and tile floors, and comes with the stove and fridge in that little pod of a kitchen. Added amenities: on-site laundry and parking. Rent's $1,450.
↑ Most of the features and fixtures in this West LA studio apartment are totally new: the kitchen and its countertops, the flooring throughout, and everything in the bathroom. "Super Bright and Large" and on a "Super Quiet Street," the apartment also offers access to on-site laundry. Super! Rent is $1,395.
↑ This freestanding two-bedroom bungalow in the western arm of Highland Park proudly proclaims that its kitchen and living room are "full size." Not sure what that means, but there sure are a lot of cabinets. With 990 square feet and walk-in closets, there appears to be a fair amount of space here. The listing also mentions the possibility of off-street parking. Rent is $1,500.
↑ Enjoy covered parking (!!!) and life in a gated complex when you rent this one-bedroom in Mid-Wilshire. The recently remodeled one-bedroom unit has ceiling fans and wood floors, and is sited on a street on which every building looks well-maintained. Rent is $1,400.
↑ Despite having no description other than to say that it features in-unit laundry and the building has a pool, this one-bedroom in Glendale seems like it might be a catch. The apartment has a balcony, apparently allows at least some pets (hence the rabbit in one shot), and looks to have been recently redone, judging by the newer-looking bathroom sink and the relative spotlessness of the predominantly white kitchen. The unit's just shy of 700 square feet, and rent's $1,500.
