What $3,000/Month Rents You in San Francisco

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: $3,000.

↑ Ever so slightly under budget at $2,990/month, this 600-square-foot one-bedroom in NoPa on Masonic Avenue has bells and whistles like a dishwasher in the kitchen and a "relatively" new washer and dryer in the unit. There's also a dedicated patio that leads to the shared backyard. No parking, but pets are negotiable.

↑ In the Marina, $2,995/month gets you this two-bedroom, one-bathroom garden unit (read: ground floor) on very busy Lombard Street. While the unit has perks like hardwood flooring throughout and what appears to be a pretty nice kitchen, we can't help but be concerned about this bit from the listing: "each bedroom has a fair sized closet, a bit on the dark side (no natural light) and fit a full size bed (possible a queen but not a king.)" So, the bedrooms don't have windows? And they may not fit a queen-sized bed? There's no parking, but laundry's in the building and pets will be considered.

↑ A very pretty top-floor one-bedroom apartment in the Tendernob is available for $2,995/month. It's a corner unit that's flooded with natural light, and has nice hardwood flooring and a wonky but spacious kitchen. There's also a walk-in closet. No parking, no pets, but there is coin laundry in the building.

↑ If you want to live in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in San Francisco (SoMa), your $3,000/month isn't going to get you much. At the Montgomery—a sleek conversion development with tiny but amenity-packed units—it gets you a 484-square-foot studio. Everything's updated, and there's laundry in the apartment. Building amenities include concierge services and a landscaped roof deck with a BBQ grill. No pets, and parking is only available for an additional, undisclosed fee.

↑ Want to live within a few blocks of Golden Gate Park? $2,995/month will get you this one-bedroom top-floor flat on the corner of Kirkham Street and 26th Avenue in the Central Sunset. It's spacious, filled with light, and has hardwood flooring. The kitchen's outdated and uninspiring; the bathroom's outdated and totally adorable. No mention of pets, but parking's included and so is laundry.
