What You Can Rent for $1,200 in Los Angeles Right Now

New, 12 comments

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for around a certain dollar amount in various Los Angeles neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Our friends at Zumper have helped us out with listings for today's price: $1,200.

↑ This little studio apartment in an almost-Adams-Hill section of Glendale has granite tile in the bathroom, "distressed" hardwood floors, and cute red cabinets under its adorable pitched roof. Tenants will be happy to find there is also on-site laundry and parking for one car. Rent is $1,225.

↑ We've seen at least one other unit in this building in Los Feliz, and we liked that one too. The listing for this 520-square-foot studio says it has a south-facing view and that you can see Barnsdall Art Park, but it's hard to make out anything from the photos. It also says that the unit is being remodeled with new hardwood floors, new lighting, and granite tile in the bathroom. All utilities are included in the rent, which is $1,175.

↑ The listing for this Mar Vista one-bedroom is brief and to the point. The unit has a full kitchen. There are two pools and one gated parking spot. The complex is quiet. True, there aren't a whole lot of bells and whistles to the place, and there's carpet in the living room and bedroom, but it's still the Westside for a reasonable price. Rent is $1,200.

↑ It may not be the reclaimed wood, farmhouse sink hipster haven of your dreams, but this studio in Silver Lake has laminate flooring, assigned parking, and on-site laundry, and those three are always in style, right? Just off Glendale near Rowena, the unit's renting for $1,220.

↑ Nothing says LA like a studio apartment in a dingbat complex. This one in Palms comes with a full bathroom (who doesn't love a tub?), laminate wood floors, a newer fridge, a retro stove, and classic pink tile in the bathroom. Rent is $1,145.
