Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a set 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: $1,400.
↑This renovated studio in Fairfax looks spacious with those white walls and dark wood floors. (In fact, the square footage isn't listed.) The unit, just down the block from Fairfax High School, boasts new IKEA cabinets and hardware, and money-saving features like LED lights and a water-efficient toilet to help you make that $1,400 a month rent.
↑ Appealing to your need to be near "a plethora of day activities & an incredible nightlife" is this one-bedroom apartment under a mile from all the hustle and bustle of the Colorado Boulevard strip in Eagle Rock. It has hardwood floors, central heating and air (not always a given), and two whole gated assigned parking spots. There are no photos of the outside of the building, but a quick Google search shows that the complex isn't bad at all. The rent will set you back $1,495 a month.
↑ Hello, top-floor apartment! This 600-square-foot one-bedroom in a South Pasadena building has beamed ceilings and overlooks a "park-like court yard" from its second-story position. You get one covered parking spot and access to the communal laundry room for your $1,350 rent.
↑ A two-bedroom, one-bathroom private home off Silver Lake Boulevard for $1,450 a month? Is it haunted? For that price, we'll take the chance it's just a nice, potentially pet-friendly space ("pets considered") with a smallish back patio and a driveway parking spot. It is BYOWD (Bring Your Own Washer/Dryer), but once you get them in there, your landlord will pay the water.
↑ This 482-square-foot studio/condo in Ktown has an older bathroom and a newer kitchen (Check out that dishwasher!) Since it's located in a "luxury complex," it's got a rooftop pool and spa, and a gym. You might not get much of a view from the balcony or use out of the fireplace, but they're both pretty nice to have. For $1,300 a month, they'll throw in a parking space.
