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: $3,600.
↑ This 1,200-square-foot two-bedroom Edwardian flat in the Central Richmond is on the rental market for $3,500/month. It's packed with Edwardian charm, though it has modern updates like stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and a dual-flush toilet in the bathroom. There's also a small bonus room in the back. There's no mention of parking or pets, but there is laundry in the building.
↑ Located on the corner of a quiet alley in Telegraph Hill is this one-bedroom apartment that clocks in at 750 square feet, asking a budget-busting $3,700/month. Most notable is the spacious balcony that's off of the main living area, though there's also a fireplace and what appears to be loads of storage. Oh, and the kitchen has a dishwasher. No pets, but parking for one car is included and there's laundry in the building.
↑ Do check out this 1,222-square-foot three-bedroom flat in the Excelsior if space is what you require. Asking $3,500/month, the apartment has perks like in-unit laundry (and the machines are new), parquet hardwood flooring, and a working fireplace. We should add that the kitchen is huge. No pets or parking.
↑ This brand-spankin'-new luxury condo in South Beach just plopped onto the rental market asking $3,550/month. The apartment is tiny at 712 square feet and only has one bedroom, but it does have perks like in-unit laundry and new everything. Want parking? That'll be an additional $275 per month. Pets will be considered on an individual basis.
↑ Living on Ninth Avenue in the Inner Richmond means having Golden Gate Park as your front yard. In this case it also means a newly remodeled two-bedroom for a budget-busting $3,700/month. The unit's a typical Victorian apartment: hardwood floors, French doors, lots of beige paint, and tall ceilings. Cats are OK, but no dogs or parking. There's shared laundry in the building.
