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: $1,300.
↑ Parking, on-site laundry, and willingness to accept a small pet with a deposit? Not bad, Hollywood one-bedroom. The "front patio" for this unit is about the size and width of a porch, but the listing is upfront about the air-conditioning unit, which is given a closeup photo in the listing. The fridge is included (hurrah!) and the single bedroom has mirrored closet doors, so you can finally stop carting around that sad Ikea mirror you leaned against the wall for years instead of mounting. Rent is $1,275.
↑ Get ready to be very popular this summer because this Valley Village one-bedroom is in a complex that has a pool. Measuring a breezy 892 square feet, the apartment has wood floors and an airy, open kitchen, plus the added bonus of ever-so-necessary air conditioning. (The listing does caution that the photos might not be of the "exact" unit.) The building also has "A sauna, BBQ grills, hot tub, two laundry rooms, a fitness center and a doggy park." Rent is $1,400.
↑ This one-bedroom apartment is on Third Street in Koreatown, just a few blocks away from Windsor Square. Its ceiling fans will be a big bonus in the summertime, while the pink bathroom is a bonus year-round. The unit allows a small pet, and comes with one parking space, but it is a BYOF (Bring Your Own Fridge) situation. Rent is $1,395.
↑ Oooh, a little beamed-ceiling action! This place is taking it up a notch. Located on the upper level of the complex, this one-bedroom in East Hollywood comes with a fridge and even has a dining area. A dining area! The lone bedroom seems spacious and well-lit. Downside: parking doesn't seem to be part of the equation. Rent is $1,295.
↑ A few blocks east of where the 110 Freeway stops in Pasadena, this little "Bungalow style" one-bedroom awaits. Wood floors, ample closet space, and a back patio are among its selling points, though only the flooring is actually pictured in the listing. It boasts a fridge and a stove, plus a carport spot for your car. Rent is $1,400.
