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 pet-friendly listings within $100 of today's price: $2,200.
↑ Is it hot in here, or is it just this Cahuenga Pass apartment? The dashing one-bedroom is giving off some seriously alluring Mid-Century Modern vibes, and it is WORKING. Exposed beams draw you in, the hardwood floors and cool balcony hold your interest, and then comes the catch: this apartment is basically on the 101 Freeway. Not literally, of course—of course!—but more or less. That balcony overlooks the highway. The apartment, which comes with a stove and fridge and built-in shelves, is dog- and cat-friendly, so the location is probably not even a dealbreaker anyway. Rent is $2,195.
↑ What's 1,000 square feet and cat-friendly? This one-bedroom Craftsman bungalow in Hollywood near Fountain and Highland, that's what. The chalky pink exterior of the 1927 house holds one bathroom, built-ins throughout, a dishwasher, and a bonus room that could double as either a guest room or an office. The rent is $2,195.
↑ This Sawtelle one-bedroom has a ton of amenities that your cat will not care about. (A dog would probably care, but they aren't allowed here.) There are new hardwood floors and carpet, recessed lighting, new cabinets in the kitchen, granite counters, a dishwasher, on-site laundry, and a swimming pool, and you'll be totally alone in your appreciation of them all. Rent is $2,300.
↑ "Perfect for someone who wants to have it all," this Playa Del Rey one-bedroom apartment allows both dogs and cats and just keeps on giving. The furnished unit comes with covered parking and has an embarrassment of fancy amenities: "Wood flooring, crown molding, baseboards, canned lighting, smooth ceilings and walls, granite, travertine, slate, stainless appliances." The place has even been retrofitted by LAX, so hopefully it's a lot quieter than an airport-adjacent residence might be otherwise. Rent is $2,250.
↑ This two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in Historic Filipinotown is right on Glendale, and freeway close, but not too close. The unit comes with garage parking, central air and heat, wood floors, and on-site laundry. The dog- and cat-friendly, lower-level unit rents for $2,300.
