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: $3,300.
↑ In Pacific Heights, $3,250/month gets you a unique one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment just two blocks from Alta Plaza Park. The good news: pets are allowed! There's laundry in the building! There's a dishwasher in the kitchen! The bad news: $3,250/month gets you a windowless bedroom with a single exposed lightbulb attached to the ceiling. No parking.
↑ If square footage is what you require, do check out this three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in Visitacion Valley. The apartment is asking $3,280/month and comes with parking and laundry. Pets, however, are not allowed.
↑ This perfectly normal two-bedroom apartment on Fulton Street (basically) at Stanyan Street in Lone Mountain means Golden Gate Park is your front yard. The rent? It'll run you $3,250/month. Fulton's a busy street, so what a relief that the unit's in the back of the building with views of Golden Gate Bridge. No pets, parking, or laundry.
↑ This recently updated 1,110-square-foot two-bedroom apartment in Sunnyside is on the rental market for $3,350/month. The kitchen's spacious and has highlights like granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. No pets or parking (though street parking should be a breeze), but there is laundry in the unit.
↑ This newish (ca. 2009) one-bedroom apartment in the Tendernob on Bush Street can be yours for $3,250. The 601-square-foot unit is quite modern, meaning there's a red and white lacquer kitchen with lots of stainless steel hardware. No pets or parking, but there is laundry in the unit.
