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 $3,800/month, which is about $200/month below the average price of a two bedroom apartment in the city. We've found that you can still score two or more bedrooms for this price, but what do you have to sacrifice for the space? You tell us what looks like the most bang for your buck.
? In the Mission, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom is going for $3,775/month. It boasts designer finishes throughout, a gas fireplace, in-unit laundry, closets with built-in organizing systems, and a large private deck right off the living room. No parking, but the listing quotes the walk-time to the 24th and Mission BART station as only 7 minutes. No pets, either.
? In Russian Hill, this one bedroom with Bay views is going for $3,800/month. Its location at Lombard and Polk is pedestrian-friendly, and the building is well-maintained with an elevator. Hardwood throughout, but dated tile backsplash and counter-tops in the kitchen and flooring in the bathroom. On-site laundry but no mention of parking.
? In the Richmond, this 1000-square-foot 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom is going for $3,750/month. With hardwood and several bay windows, it's got nice natural light and charm. There's also an open-plan kitchen with new stainless appliances, in-unit laundry, and a case-by-case pet policy. Garage parking is available for an additional $200/month.
? In the Sunset, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom on Noriega Street is going for $3,800/month. It's got 1,850 square feet but the floorplan looks a bit tight and dark. It's also got hardwood, new appliances in the kitchen, and laundry (though it's not clear if it's in the unit or shared in the building). No parking and no pets.
