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 $3,000/month. You get to choose between one and two bedrooms! So you tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ In Potrero Hill, this 1-bed, 1-bath is asking $3,000/month. The unit looks nice, with big windows, corner exposure, a fireplace, hardwood, and in-unit laundry. But the listing's euphemistic phrasing of the location is a little much - "nestled between both the 101 and 280 freeways" probably means that the air quality is bad and there's traffic noise.
↑ In the Inner Sunset, this 2-bed, 1-bath is asking$2,950/month. It's got hardwood throughout and a nicely remodeled kitchen and bathroom, but the landlord missed the unit's janky doors in the renovation. Laundry in the building. Parking is available for $150/month extra and no pets.
↑ In Pacific Heights, this 1-bed, 1-bath is asking $2,975/month. It's got hardwood throughout, nice windows, and a remodeled - albeit tiny and very oddly-laid out - kitchen. The building has laundry and an elevator. No pets.
↑ In the Outer Richmond, this 2-bed, 1-bath is asking $3,100/month. What it lacks in charm it makes up for in space - the rooms are large and there's a yard, parking for 1 car, and laundry in the building. Hardwood throughout and everything is relatively modern.
↑ In Noe Valley, this 1-bed, 1-bath is over-budget at $3,150/month. It's nice, bright, and remodeled. The kitchen is efficient but narrow, and there's so much tracked and recessed lighting that it may preclude you from needing lamps.
