Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour the San Francisco's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. This week, we're investigating apartments listed for $3,300/month. When we showed you what you could score for $3,200/month earlier this month, you voted overwhelmingly for more space as the best investment of your rental dollars. But if you've got another $1,200/year to spend, will your priorities change? Or will space still win out? You tell us what looks like the most bang for your buck.
? Let's start in Russian Hill, where this charming 900-square-foot one bedroom is going for $3,300/month. Although this building may not have too much curb appeal, it is located right off the hippest section of Polk Street, and the rental price includes utilities and a parking space. The kitchen and bathroom are clean but nothing special, and pets are not allowed.
? Next, we'll head to nearby Pacific Heights, where this one bedroom is going for $3,300/month. The square footage, though unspecified, looks to be a little more than that of the Russian Hill unit above, and includes a formal dining room with an old world built-in china cabinet. But this unit does not include parking -- it just offers it for $300 extra. The location is more residential, close to Lafayette Park -- but don't have dreams of taking your dog to play there, because the building doesn't allow pets. Perks include marble around the tub in the bathroom, a truly massive walk-in closet, an impressive lobby, elevators, and tons of curb appeal.
? Our next stop is the Upper Haight, where this pet-friendly one bedroom is going for $3,295/month. The hardwood adds charm, but the apartment is otherwise fairly non-descript. There's a mirrored closet in the bedroom and drab grey tiling in the kitchen. But there are two parks close by for your pup, and the location is low on inventory, so this unit is a rare find.
? Next, we're really going big, and taking you to the Sunset, where this massive four bedroom, three bathroom single family home is going for $3,300/month. This unit boasts a large garage, a backyard, and a split-level layout with one bedroom and one bathroom downstairs. Sure, the kitchen is straight out of the 1970s, the carpet downstairs is drab and dark, and the yard is half concrete. But if space is king, this place has got it.
? Finally, we head to the Little Russian area of the Richmond, where this $3,398/month two bedroom offers a happy medium. It's still spacious, with a den that could be converted to a third bedroom. The kitchen and bathroom are still old, but in a much more charming, Deco way. And it's pet friendly.
