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 listings within $100 of today's price: $1,400.
↑ This charming one-bedroom in an Art Deco building in Beverly Grove has its own private entry and staircase, a large private balcony, laminate wood floors. The upper rear apartment gets plenty of light and the landlords might even consider letting a pet in, but there's neither reserved parking (street parking only) nor on-site laundry. Bummer. Rent is $1,450.
↑ About a block away from the Hollywood Bowl, this 700-square-foot studio apartment in the Hollywood Hills thankfully has assigned parking in a garage. It's also got a dishwasher, on-site laundry, and air conditioning. The complex even has a small pool and a little courtyard. Rent is $1,430.
↑ Those looking to be close to a freeway will be happy to know that this one-bedroom in Sherman Oaks is right by the intersection of the 101 and the 405. Outfitted with hardwood floors, the coolest part of the apartment is possibly the kitchen, which has cool tile work, a stove, and a fridge (it's described as "flawless" in the listing). Rent is $1,450.
↑ This newly redecorated one-bedroom in Westlake right by the border with Koreatown is doing everything right. The unit has wood floors, tile counters, "numerous ceiling fans," a big bedroom, and on-site parking. Though it's located on the first floor of the complex, it appears to get some decent light, too. Rent is $1,350.
↑ Get a load of that breakfast bar. Finally: a place to eat breakfast. This 800-square-foot one-bedroom apartment in East Hollywood brings a stove and fridge, on-site laundry, and brand new windows, but it seems like assigned parking, while available, might cost extra. Rent is $1,489.
