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: $1,800.
↑ This one-bedroom in a Spanish-style, Mid-Wilshire triplex is located in the back of the building, but it still seems to get a fair amount of light. The whole building was "reconstructed in 2013," and the interior of the 500-square-foot apartment looks shiny and new. The kitchen has all new appliances, an in-unit laundry area, and laminate wood floors. Rent is $1,750.
↑ As far as guesthouses go, this one-bedroom one is pretty fantastic. Located behind "a gorgeous Beverly Hills home," the tiny dwelling has a full bathroom, a kitchenette, and air conditioning. The only slight downside is that the lofted bedroom is accessible only by a ladder. Or maybe that's an upside. Who knows! Rent's $1,895.
↑ That decorative fireplace is like an arrow to the heart! (In a good way.) The frills here (that fireplace, hardwood floors, granite counters) are a tempting addition to an already cute two-bedroom apartment in Pico-Union. Just around the corner from the fantastic Greek institution that is Papa Cristo's, the place has "plenty of space" and a roomy kitchen to boot. Rent is $1,900.
↑ This one-bedroom near the Sunset Strip has parking, thank goodness, as well as hardwood floors, on-site laundry facilities, two entrances (rear and front), and a stove and fridge included. The upstairs unit also has strong vintage vibes, with some pink tile in the bathroom and a retro kitchen. Rent is $1,725.
↑ This two-bedroom in Palms has a nice little bonus: one and a half bathrooms. Equipped with both hardwood floors and new carpet, the apartment on a "Quiet Street!" also has a good amount of closet space and comes with two parking spaces. Rent is $1,895.
