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: $1,200.

↑ New laminate wood floors greet prospective tenants of this Koreatown one-bedroom, and on-site laundry, one parking space, and good natural light sort of make up for that very compact kitchen. Rent here is $1,200.

↑ The ceiling fan in the kitchen of this Mid-City one-bedroom is ideal for the cook who burns things often. Meanwhile, the apartment's cool, geometric doorways are stylish, while the dark-colored carpet says "Don't worry if you spilled something; no one will ever know." All the makings of a party house, the place rents for $1,150.

↑ The listing for this studio in a retro 1964 Burbank complex is short on details, but the apartment doesn't seem to have any parking. It does offer on-site laundry, a pool, and a gym. The building is very close to the 5 Freeway, which could be either a big problem or a huge time-saver. Rent is $1,200.

↑ This upstairs, corner studio in a Palms Dingbat has a full bathroom, but no parking. The pink-tiled shower, plentiful storage cabinets, and possibility of having a small pet (accepted with additional deposit) are all strong pros for the apartment, though. Rent is $1,295.

↑ Those who demand some old-timey details in their residences will enjoy this Adams-Normandie one-bedroom, which boasts French doors, hardwood floors, and crown molding. The spacious unit has a full kitchen that includes a dishwasher, assigned parking, and in-unit laundry. Rent is $1,300.
