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: $3,500.
↑ Yesterday, we reported that San Francisco rents had fallen back to $3,500/month for a one-bedroom apartment. Given that, we decided to use that sum for today's Curbed Comparisons price. One of the properties we found was this one-bedroom, one-bath unit in Noe Valley. For $3,495/month, you get a newly remodeled kitchen, nice hardwood floors, an in-unit laundry, and a good location (it's close to Douglass Playground and the action on 24th Street). There's also a balcony with nice city views. Dogs and cats are permitted, but need to be approved by management.
↑ This one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment is located at 360 Guerrero St. in the Mission District and is asking $3,500/month. No square footage is listed, but it's described as a "large" apartment. It has a just-renovated kitchen with a dishwasher. There's also a balcony that looks over an inner courtyard (the listing calls this a quiet oasis in a "hopping" neighborhood). The rooms are rather vanilla, but the neighborhood is, indeed, vibrant. The apartment is located near the Valencia Corridor and BART. There's a laundry in the building and one parking space. Pets are not welcome here.
↑ Here's a two-bedroom, one-bathroom unit located at 1946 Grove St. along the Panhandle that's renting for $3,500/month. The space has period detail and a bay window that make it inviting. The kitchen looks newish, but there's no visible dishwasher. There's no mention of a laundry or parking and pets are not permitted.
↑ This one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartmentat 1472 Filbert St. on Russian Hill is nearly all white: walls, carpets, and cabinets. You can rely on the views for color. The top floor (six levels here), corner unit is positioned to take in the sights of the Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of Fine Arts, and the Marin Headlands. The $3,495/month unit is 900 square feet, but it has two walk-in closets. The kitchen comes with a dishwasher, gas stove, and microwave. A laundry is in the building. Cats are allowed.
