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: $1,250.
↑ Right where the Hills meet up with West Hollywood, this classy, private bachelor apartment awaits. Above a garage (boo) but without any neighbors above or below (yay!), the unit is in a 1940s building with hardwood floors and new tile in the bathroom. There's also a "private deck," presumably the roof of the garage. Rent is $1,275.
↑ This apartment with two whole bedrooms in West Adams is quite the score. It has high ceilings, "an original 1920s mantel" over the now decorative fireplace, and hookups for a washer and dryer. The bathroom's just been redone and there's additional storage space available. Rent is $1,350.
↑ Give in to the cuteness of this cozy studio in Silver Lake, just west of Sunset Boulevard and Silver Lake. The walk-in closet at least makes the small space more bearable. The new kitchen with fancy counters, new wood floors, and crown molding don't hurt either. Rent is $1,175.
↑ This 550-square-foot one-bedroom in South Pasadena is in a 16-unit complex far enough away from the 110 Freeway not to hear the traffic every damn day, but close enough to sweeten the deal. The unit comes with all appliances, wood floors, and on-site laundry. There's also one precious carport parking spot that comes with the unit. Rent is $1,350.
↑ Parking! We have parking. And wood floors and big windows. Tucked into Los Feliz, this pet-unfriendly studio in Los Feliz has an older kitchen and not a ton of storage, but it is in a pretty cool neighborhood. Rent is $1,325.
