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.
↑ A "bright upper unit" in Koreatown, this one-bedroom apartment has more going for it than just good light. Just a few blocks from the Wilshire/Normandie Purple Line stop, it's close to public transportation access but also has a reserved parking space. The bathroom and kitchen have "classic" retro-cool tiling, and there are real hardwood floors in here. Even the building, with it's little courtyard, is cute. It is BYOFridge, but maybe you're already saddled with one from your last apartment. Rent is $1,350.
↑ It feels like the summer is going to last forever, so this two-bedroom in Reseda in a complex with a pool is looking better already. Not like it needs help looking good! "Brand new carpet," built-in cabinets in the hallway, ceiling fans and air-conditioning, plus cat-friendliness are part of the deal here. There's some vagueness about parking ("Gated Parking + Street Parking") that seems like off-street parking might cost you, though. Rent is $1,295.
↑ This studio apartment in Mid-City is filled with tons of snazzy new stuff, including a washer and dryer and a dishwasher. Nice tile floors in the bathroom and kitchen, with pecan wood floors everywhere else. It's a studio, so the bedroom is basically in the living room and kitchen, but that's workable, right? Pets are not just ok here, they are welcomed, by the way. Rent is $1,395.
↑ This first-floor, rear studio apartment in Beverly Hills has its kitchen in a separate room, which is a welcome feature in a studio. The fridge and stove in the wee kitchen are included, and there's on-site laundry. Parking is on the street, though, and with a permit. Rent is $1,450.
↑ This Hollywood one-bedroom is one of just eight units in its complex at Sunset and Bronson. It's not the most attractive place we've seen, but it's been "newly updated." Its stove and fridge are included, and it has one parking space for a medium car or smaller. Rent is $1,395.
