Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various San Francisco neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $4,000.
↑ This two-bedroom, two-bathroom home is in the Sunset and asks $3,700. The recently remodeled house is located at 2131 34th Ave. All the appliances are billed as new, and you can see the stickers and protective film are still on the stainless steel dishwasher, range, and refrigerator in the kitchen. The living room has a parquet floor and a pretty corner fireplace. The neighborhood is described as quiet. This home has no garage (street parking is described as easy) and has a washer/dryer hook ups. No pets allowed here.
↑ This one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment at 666 Post asks $3,950/month. The Union Square unit exudes Old-World elegance with a grand entry, parquet floors, classic molding, and large windows. The kitchen's cherry cabinets and appliances appear to be new. There's a concierge, valet parking, and a rooftop deck with reportedly stunning views (no photos included in the listing). The location is across the alley from Le Colonial restaurant and bar and steps from shopping and entertainment. There's an in-unit laundry, but no word on a pet policy.
↑ Up next, another single-family home in the Excelsior. This two-bedroom, one-bathroom home is asking for $4,000/month. There's two things of note: one is the faux painting in the light well (a bistro scene?) and the other is knotty-pine-panelled bonus room that's full on 1950s and begging for a bar. There's a formal dining room here, along with a vintage kitchen. Pets are negotiable.
↑ This two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment in the Castro is also looking for $4,000/month. Many would consider the location ideal: at 3901 19th St., it's only blocks from both Castro Street and Dolores Park. The woodwork is dark-colored and bold, and some of the pink colors aren't shy either. There's reportedly a lot of closet space and parking for a single car. No pets allowed here.
