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: $1,900.
↑ This two-bedroom in an adorable and serene-looking Pasadena cottage complex is waiting to make all your vintage-inspired dreams come true. Upstairs from a one-car garage that's included in the rent, the unit's entered via the enclosed sunroom, then opens onto a living room with a decorative fireplace and some of the apartment's signature built-ins. With cute tile in the kitchen and hardwood floors throughout, this unit's renting for $1,895.
↑ Be the first to break in all the stuff in this renovated one-bedroom apartment near the Hollywood/West Hollywood line. The kitchen's new counters and stainless steel appliances, and all-new bathroom with classy shower await. On-site laundry and one parking space are part of the deal. The rent is $1,900.
↑ Inside this cute gray Beverly Hills apartment complex is a front-facing two-bedroom that boasts "tons of closet space," new air conditioning and heating, and one parking space. The listing says this is "one of the most desirable locations in Los Angeles," but it's not clear whether they're talking about this apartment in particular or the neighborhood. Either way, it's not bad for $1,950.
↑ Another contender for adorable vintage apartment comes from just south of West Hollywood Park in West Hollywood. This 700-square-foot one-bedroom has an ornamental fireplace, parking, and in-unit laundry. Rent is $2,000.
↑ Attention clothes hoarders: this condo in Palms only has one bedroom, but that bedroom has two closets. The new laminate floors and parking space are great, but the reverse osmosis water filter installed in the kitchen puts this place over the top. (Okay, maybe just over the top for the water connoisseur.) The place is being rented partially furnished for $2,000.
