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: $2,050.
↑ Not far from the North Hollywood Arts District, this studio apartment—and heck, the whole complex it's in—are really continuing that artsy vibe with that notable living space of the artist: the loft. 766 feet of wide open space and exposed duct work await here, along with air conditioning (those ducts aren't just decorative), on-site laundry, and polished concrete. Pet-friendly (albeit, with some pricey deposits) and boasting assigned parking, the apartment rents for $2,100.
↑ Sweet, sweet condo life is calling from West Hollywood. This one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit just south of the Sunset Strip has been "updated" and features hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances. Good news: one parking spot is included in the rent. The gated complex offers a lap pool and spa too. Rent is $2,100.
↑ This cute Brentwood courtyard apartment is located close to Barrington and Sunset (and the Archer School for Girls, which might mean morning traffic congestion), and is walking distance from the Brentwood Village and its amenities. The one-bedroom, upper-level unit for rent here has cherry oak wood floors, a dishwasher, efficient double-paned windows, and an "XL" bedroom. The building also has laundry facilities on-site. Rent is $2,045.
↑ This two-bedroom apartment in Hollywood offers not just the space of two whole bedrooms, but also two bathrooms, assigned parking, and laundry facilities. The unit has its own balcony, new granite countertops, and laminate floors. Not bad! Rent is $2,000.
↑ Northeast of Old Town in Pasadena, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo's north-facing windows show off the sweet views of the nearby mountains and let the light into the living room's high ceilings. The upper-level unit has a balcony, a fireplace, a dining room (connected to the kitchen by a convenient pass-through window), and two bathrooms, each one located off the bedrooms. The 968-square-foot apartment also has in-unit laundry and comes with two parking spaces. Rent is $2,100.
