Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various San Francisco neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $4,200.
↑ First up is a one-bedroom loft in the Mission. It's in the old See's Candy Factory building and is asking $4,200/month for its very trendy interiors, roof deck, and stainless steel appliances. Industrial touches include a freight elevator and warehouse windows. There is coin-operated laundry in the building and pets are welcome.
↑ For $4,200/month, you can rent an entire three-bedroom house in Forest Knolls. The home is simple midcentury, with wood-paneled walls and a fireplace. There's laundry inside, a two-car garage, and a backyard. Neither pets nor smokers are allowed.
↑ A luxurious two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in the heart of Pacific Heights comes in a little over budget, at $4,230/month. But it's in a gorgeous 1920s Spanish Mediterranean building and has all kinds of high-end touches, from cherry cabinetry to track lighting. There's an attached garage and cats and dogs are welcome.
↑ Out in Sunnyside, rent a three-bedroom single-family house for $4,250/month, again a bit over budget. It's been recently renovated and has tiled backsplashes in the kitchen and fresh hardwood floors. There's a one-car garage and a backyard, but no mention of pets.
↑ Finally, there's a big two-bedroom for rent back in the Mission for $4,200/month. It's got a huge living room and kitchen and a vintage flamingo-pink bathroom. Its best feature is a huge, leafy back garden. Parking, however, is an extra $300/month, and cats and dogs, while welcome, will extra cost an extra fee.
