Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for around 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: $2,100.
↑ Whoa nellie—that's some nice crown molding. This front-facing, two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in the Burbank Rancho Equestrian District doesn't stop there: it's also got stainless steel appliances, new cabinets, and renovated bathrooms. No central air, but there is window-mounted air conditioning in one bedroom and in the living room. Rent is $2,095.
↑ Just off the main drag of Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock, we find this two-bedroom, two-bathroom with hardwood floors and double-paned windows, giving a little more insulation on these sweltering days. (There's also central air and heat.) Included in the rent are two gated parking spaces, and since you're also living in an area with a Walkscore of 83, your car might need a place to hang out. Rent is $2,095 a month.
↑ Get ready to be instantly more popular: this two bedroom, two bathroom in Palms has a pool in the complex. The pet-friendly unit has central air, two parking spaces, an updated kitchen, and a balcony, plus it looks like it's got a fair amount of closet space. Rent is $2,195.
↑ Hope you're into the decor and furnishings, because they are included in the price of this one-bedroom in West Hollywood. The third-floor unit will soon be remodeled to have granite countertops and stainless appliances, and utilities (minus internet/cable/phone) and a flat screen are included, but there's no word about the parking situation. It's renting for $2,095.
↑ Right on the line between Little Tokyo and the Arts District is this one-bedroom loft with a private balcony and in-unit laundry. The unit's on the top floor, so it has a pretty nice view of the pool in the complex. (The apartment also has a fireplace, but that probably doesn't sound as nice right now.) We're also partial to that enormous window. The rent is $2,200.
