Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour the San Francisco's rental listings to see what your monthly rent will get you across the city. This week, we're investigating apartments listed for $3,500/month. Your choices are pretty evenly split between one and two bedrooms this time around. Is space king? You tell us what looks like the most bang for your buck.
? In South Beach, this bi-level one bedroom loft is going for $3,557/month. It has brushed concrete floors and a large open-plan living space downstairs, with a carpeted sleeping area upstairs, overlooking the kitchen. AT&T Park is close by, and if you like pork butt, the listing raves about a great food truck that regularly serves the area.
? NoPa will put you a bit over-budget at $3,595/month, but this unit - while listed as a one bedroom - looks like it is actually a 2 bedroom. Everything is newly renovated but it completely lacks in character. The closets have custom built-ins, the kitchen has a wine rack and a large bar top, and there's an in-unit washer and dryer. No pets.
? Cow Hollow will also put you over-budget with this $3,595/month one bedroom. The windows are -as the photos suggest - the unit's best feature, letting in tons of natural light. The kitchen is small but has stainless appliances and there's hardwood throughout. Parking will run you an extra $350 to $550/month and extra storage space is another $75/month. No pets.
? In the Central Richmond, this two bedroom, two bathroom is under-budget for $3,400/month. At 1,200 square feet the unit is pretty massive. The kitchen and bathroom have been renovated, there's hardwood throughout, and the living room has classic built-ins surrounding the fireplace.
? In Bernal Heights, this two bedroom, one bathroom is going for $3,500/month. The open-plan living space looks very large and bright, with a renovated kitchen. One bedroom has hardwood and the other has carpet. There's a washer and dryer in the unit and it's pet-friendly.
