Welcome to a special series of Curbed Comparisons, where we scour the San Francisco's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. For Renters Week, we'll be comparing rentals across the city every day, increasing the price point by $1,000/month each day. Today we're closing out the week with a bang, investigating apartments listed for $5,500/month. What can you rent when you've got $66,000/year to spend on rent? You tell us what looks like the most bang for your buck.
In Dogpatch, this tri-level, 2-bed, 2.5-bath, 1,575-square-foot loft is going for $5,500/month. Both bedrooms are located on lower level and have en-suite bathrooms. The middle level houses the living space and has a small terrace. The upper level has a den/office area and a sun-deck. There's parking for one and laundry in the unit. What can we say? It's pretty fabulous.
In Upper Market, this 2-bed, 2.5-bath, 1500-square-foot home with a detached studio/guest room is asking $5,500/month. The home was remodeled in 2007, but the appliances and finishes still look modern. Lovely kitchen and bathrooms, and hardwood throughout. The detached studio/guest room also has an additional bathroom, and is separated from the main house by a garden with BBQ area. And there's parking.
In South Beach, this 2-bed, 2-bath unit is asking $5,500/month. There are wall-to-wall floor-to-ceiling windows in the living area with panoramic city views, and floor-to-ceiling windows in at least one of the bedrooms. Hardwood in the living space, carpet in the bedrooms, super-contemporary kitchen and bath, and an extra office nook off the living room. The building comes with a spa, fitness center, dog park, and doorman.
In the Marina, this top-floor 2-bed, 1.5-bath condo is asking $5,500/month. It's got a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, formal dining room with wine storage, in-unit laundry, a nice kitchen that includes a flat-screen TV, and a 2-car garage. Hardwood in living area and carpet in the bedrooms. And apparently one bedroom has a private terrance, though shamefully there is no photo.
