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.
↑ Shiny hardwood floors plus decently-sized windows make for a nice bright living space in this Mid-Wilshire studio apartment near The Grove. Your houseplants will rejoice. In addition to having lots of storage space, the apartment has a private entrance, but no laundry in the unit; the complex does have on-site facilities though. Rent is $1,175.
↑ The one-bedroom apartment available in this lovely Koreatown building sits on the first floor and is well aware of its coolness ("custom paint colors #HIPSTER"). The residence features a full, retro, tiled kitchen with a stove and fridge, hardwood floors, and plenty of charm. Rent is $1,250.
↑ This remodeled one-bedroom unit in Historic Filipinotown comes with one parking space and its own water heater—"never run out of hot water again due to your neighbors!" The apartment offers closet space in the hallway, living room, and bedroom, plus hardwood floors. (Keep in mind that the photos here are just a "representation" of what the unit is probably like.) Rent is $1,299.
↑ For those who have Marie Kondo'd the heck out of their worldly possessions and are planning on traveling light to their next apartment, there's this bachelor-style unit with a kitchenette (with microwave!) in Hollywood, about two blocks west of Hollywood and Highland. Taking up just around 370 square feet, the place has crown moldings, wall-mounted air conditioning, and access to the vaguely Colonial-ish building's on-site laundry. Those looking to really get cozy with a roommate or significant other in here will be disappointed: only one tenant is allowed. Rent is $1,195.
↑ The listing for this one-bedroom in a cute Valley Glen complex with mid-century vibes is light on the details, but the photos pick up some of the slack. The apartment has carpet, a full bathroom, a reserved parking space, and access to on-site laundry and a pool, plus a decent kitchen. Rent is $1,195.
