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.
↑ Sure, the photos for this North Hollywood apartment listing don't show the actual two-bedroom unit, but it sounds like they're not far off at least? The ground-floor, corner spot is in an older, gated complex with a pool, and has bedrooms described as "large." The bathroom, meanwhile, has "designer tiled walls." (We're imagining tiny Louis Vuitton tiles.) Wood floors and ceiling fans are part of the deal, and there's on-site laundry and gated parking, too. Rent is $1,299.
↑ This West LA studio has wood floors, plenty of cabinet space in the kitchen, recessed lighting, granite counters, on-site laundry, and a policy of cat friendliness. It doesn't have a stove or an oven, or reserved parking for tenants, though. Rent is $1,450.
↑ This roomy Studio City one-bedroom has reserved parking, on-site laundry facilities, and a balcony, though there's not much of a view). The appliances in the kitchen are all new and stainless steel, the bedroom carpet is new too, and there's wall-mounted air-conditioning (or a pool, if the wall unit doesn't cut it). The cat-friendly unit rents for $1,400.
↑ The closet gods have left LA renters a little gift right where Pico-Robertson meets Beverlywood—within the walls of this one-bedroom apartment, there are TWO walk-in closets. The unit also boasts real hardwood floors, a full kitchen, and wild checkered tile in both the bathroom and kitchen. There is one reserved parking spot. Rent is $1,325.
↑ This one-bedroom apartment in Hollywood has a slim, workable, galley-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher) and granite counters. The dark wood floors and big bedroom closet make it even more appealing, but the reserved parking is the deal-sealer. No pets allowed, though. Rent is $1,425.
