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 $5,500/month. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ In Bernal Heights, this 3-bed, 2-bath Edwardian single-family home is asking $5,500/month. It's got a deck, a large garage with laundry room, and a bonus room downstairs with a built-in desk. "Lots of good light and energy." No dogs.
↑ In Laurel Heights, this 2-bed, 1.5-bath flat is asking $5,500/month. It's got a shared yard, large porch with a stacked W/D, and a garage space - but the garage is tandem and shared with the upstairs unit. The landlord also requires the tenant to have renters insurance. Close to the Presidio and pet-friendly.
↑ In SoMa, this renovated 3-bed, 1-bath flat is asking $5,500/month. The rooms all look small, and one of the bedrooms is directly adjunct to the living room. Shared yard and street parking only. But there's a W/D in the unit and it's pet, business, and startup friendly.
↑ In Noe Valley, this 3-bed, 2-bath bi-level unit is asking $5,500/month. Located on the top floor of a three-unit building, this penthouse has a large deck with panoramic views and garage parking. There's hardwood on the main level and carpet upstairs, as well as two functional fireplaces. Plus, it's only a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Google bus stop.
