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: $3,000.
↑ The kitchen has weird maroon tile, but the rest of the place looks like THIS. Shiny wood floors, a balcony, a fun Art Deco-tiled bathroom, and a steady stream of cool built-ins are all included in this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in a Fairfax fourplex, about a block north of Pan Pacific Park. There's no in-unit laundry, but there are hook-ups if you really want it, and there's parking available in a private garage (though it sounds like that might cost extra). Rent is $3,095.
↑ Just off Pico and La Cienega in this lovely bit of "contemporary construction" in Pico-Roberston, 10-foot ceilings and a large balcony await. This one-bedroom apartment has fancy cabinets, quartz counters, and a nice tile backsplash in the kitchen; hardwood floors; a cool spiral staircase; and a washer/dryer inside the apartment. Rent is $2,995.
↑ This Silver Lake two-bedroom in a fourplex has two bathrooms, off-street parking, central air and heating, all the appliances (a dishwasher!), and shared laundry. Add a private, astroturfed patio and this is basically perfect. Rent is $2,995.
↑ This modern one-bedroom spot in Del Rey has a balcony and oak floors, in-unit laundry, tall ceilings, big closets, remote-controlled curtains, and a lofted bedroom (wood floor up there too). The complex has a rooftop deck with all sorts of bells and whistles (no pool though, it seems). Rent is $2,945.
↑ Located on a little side street in Cypress Park, this house has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a cute backyard. The 1926 house is gated, and comes with appliances, a washer and dryer, a dishwasher, and air conditioning. Interior shots show wood floors and plenty of bright light from the windows. The rent is $2,995.
