Los Angeles Rent Comparison: What $1,150 Rents in LA

New, 16 comments

Is a studio in Hollywood better than a one-bedroom in Van Nuys?

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in various LA 'hoods. Our friends at Zumper have helped us out with five listings within $100 of today's price: $1,150.

↑ This studio apartment is located in a Historic Filipinotown building pretty close to the 101 Freeway, which is probably both good and bad. The interior holds a little kitchen, wood floors, a ceiling fan, and a not unattractive paint job (though these photos aren't necessarily of the exact unit). Rent is $1,050.

↑ An upstairs unit, this studio apartment comes with two parking spaces and a fridge. There's laundry on-site and the building isn't too far from the downtown Burbank area and the IKEA, which will soon be toast. Rent is $1,100.

↑ There are a lot of recent updates in this studio not far from the Hollywood Forever Cemetery: a new sink and counters in the kitchen, a freshly re-glazed bathtub, and brand new flooring. There's only street parking, but there's laundry in the building and a pet-friendly policy (furry friends allowed with a deposit). Rent is $1,150.

↑ Pink bathroom alert! Pastel tile graces the bathroom and the kitchen counters (which are kind of a pistachio pudding color in the best way) of this Van Nuys one-bedroom. The kitchen has a ceiling fan over the dining area and there's another in the bedroom to help the wall-mounted air conditioner keep things cool. Parking is included for the $1,145 rent.

↑ This 350-square-foot "spacious" Highland Park studio has a narrow kitchen and a solid-looking divider in the middle of the main room to give you a little privacy. The rent includes parking and the building takes small pets with a deposit and monthly pet fee. Rent is $1,100, which is a 15 percent discount from the median price for one-bedrooms in Highland Park.
