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: $1,850.
↑ In-unit laundry and parking just a stone's throw from that hip Urth Caffe on Colorado in Pasadena? Yes, please. This one-bedroom unit is on the second floor of a two-story complex, and has both carpet and hardwood inside. The kitchen appears newer and has stainless-steel appliances, and the central air-conditioning will keep the unit cool. Rent is $1,795.
↑ This Beverly Grove one-bedroom is being very mysterious, only revealing four photos, but they're four pretty decent photos. The charming older building has just eight units; the one-bedroom up for rent is about 1,000 square feet. The place comes with a stove and a fridge and has newly-restored hardwood floors. There is no word on the parking situation, though, and usually no news is bad news. Rent is $1,900.
↑ Yes, Panorama City seems far away, but for this much space—three bedrooms!—it might just be worth it. These very new apartments not too far from the 405 (but hopefully far enough away not to hear the hum of traffic?), and come with wood floors and tile in both bathrooms. Granite counters, huge closets, and a microwave and stove are part of the package, but a washer and dryer are not, though there are hook-ups for them in the apartment. (There is also a conspicuous fridge-size gap in the kitchen.) Rent is $1,945.
↑ Not bad, Westside. This one-bedroom in Del Rey is 650 square feet and comes with a parking spot. The apartment itself is decked out in almost all the appliances a renter could want (stove, fridge, dishwasher), new floors, and central heat. The building has on-site laundry, too. Rent is $1,750.
↑ Hooray for Hollywood! This two-bedroom apartment is especially great for those who regularly attend Cinespia outdoor movie screenings at Hollywood Forever Cemetery: it's about a block from the entrance to the cemetery. The listing photos for the "beautiful ... remodeled apartment," scant though they are, do seem to confirm that the place has recently been given an overhaul. There are wood floors in the 800-square-foot apartment, and stairs that hopefully go somewhere. The kitchen has tile floors, a stove, and a glorious dishwasher. The apartment comes with two assigned parking spots. Rent is $1,800.
