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: $1,350.
↑ East Hollywood, you're holding out on us. This one-bedroom apartment is a shiny gem—so shiny—with its tiled kitchen counters, serious shelving throughout, and big ol' windows. The hardwood floors have been newly refinished in this upper, front unit, but the listing has zero information about assigned parking, so we can assume that's the catch here. Rent is $1,399.
↑ The one-bedroom in this "Small Vintage Building" in Studio City that's up for grabs comes with granite countertops, on-site laundry, one parking space, and brand new laminate floors. The building's built around a small, central courtyard and is nestled in a residential neighborhood. Rent is $1,397.
↑ Real hardwood floors, on-site laundry, and two parking spaces come with this upper floor one-bedroom in Hollywood. It's got a sad pool you're never going to use, but the other amenities kind of make up for that. Rent is $1,395.
↑ A guesthouse is basically like a real house, right? Sure! This one-bedroom unit in Los Feliz appears to have a stove and fridge in the tiny kitchen, ceiling fans, access to patios, and a ceiling fan. No pets are allowed in the 680-square-foot apartment, which seems especially lame given its proximity to grassy outdoor areas, but those are the rules. Rent is $1,400.
↑ The available one-bedroom unit in this large Koreatown complex measures 484 square feet. The building doesn't have much in the way of cool charm or vintage touches, but the unit comes furnished, and with a dishwasher, air conditioning, and ceiling fan. In the summer, all of those are going to mean way more than some adorable built-ins. Rent is $1,350.
