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.
↑ The Echo Park Lake is visible from the building that holds this tidy, vintage studio. Included with the unit are the fridge and stove, both less than a year old; the wood floors look like newish laminate, too. Thankfully, it looks like there's a lot of closet space (especially in the hallway) in the 350-square-foot apartment. The bad news is, there's likely only street parking. Rent is $1,295.
↑ This front-facing one-bedroom in Koreatown sure looks spacious. The kitchen has a new stove and fridge. There's lots of storage space here—the bedroom has two closets! Parking is an extra $50 a month, but at least it's an option. Rent is $1,275.
↑ If you're looking to live close to some hiking opportunities, consider this Montecito Heights one-bedroom near Debs Park access points. The apartment's been outfitted with new fixtures and counters, and there's a new stove, too. Air-conditioning comes via a wall-mounted unit, and the complex has on-site laundry and off-site parking. Rent is $1,325.
↑ The kitchen and balcony in this Valley Glen one-bedroom are narrow, but the sole bedroom and the living room look spacious. That's a fair trade, right? There are ceiling fans and a wall-mounted air-conditioning unit to help keep you cool, and also a POOL. On-site laundry and parking are included in this cat-friendly unit. Rent is $1,275.
↑ This one-bedroom is in a little court-style apartment building in Burbank, near the LA Equestrian Center. Inside, there are multiple ceiling fans plus (wall-mounted) air-conditioning and laminate floors. The kitchen is compact, and the bedroom has a mirrored closet door and little built-in shelving. Off-street parking is part of the deal. Rent is $1,350.
