Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour 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 $2,500/month. What can below-average rent get you around the city? You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ In the Outer Richmond, this 1 bed, 1 bath with ocean views is asking $2,495/month. It's got a small, open remodeled kitchen and a narrow sunroom with panoramic views of the Pacific. The bedroom looks to be a nice size, and the listing indicates that there's in-unit laundry (though there's no photographic evidence of that).
↑ In Bernal Heights, this remodeled 1 bed, 1 bath is asking $2,500/month. The kitchen looks big, with room for a dining table, but the bedroom and living room look small. Nice hardwood and tile throughout, and there's backyard access.
↑ In the Mission, this remodeled 1 bed, 1 bath is asking $2,495/month. It's got a nice remodeled kitchen but with very little counter and cabinet space. The bathroom is also nice, but also small. The unit is located on Mission Street, so we'd expect noise.
↑ In the Sunset, this 1 bed, 1 bath situated across the street from Golden Gate Park is asking $2,495/month. The living room has huge windows overlooking the park, for a very green view, and a fireplace. Carpet throughout. But before you dream of living across from the park with your dog, note that this apartment doesn't allow pets.
