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: $2,600.
↑ In the Outer Richmond and directly across the street from Golden Gate Park is this 1-bedroom loft asking $2,599/month. Highlights include a vaulted ceiling and a wood burning fireplace. The location also means Golden Gate Park is your front yard and Ocean Beach is only a few blocks away. No pets, but parking and laundry is in the building.
↑ In the Mission, $2,550/month will get you this 1,050-square-foot 2-bedroom flat that's pretty wonky. "Kind of an unconventional floorplan," reads the listing. There's a small outside storage space and a shared backyard. Pets are negotiable; laundry's on site but there's no parking.
↑ $2,595/month gets you a pretty and light-filled studio in the Upper Haight. It's packed with charm, like french doors, tall ceilings, and plenty of windows. Cats are OK; no parking, but laundry's in the building.
↑ This is a 1-bedroom apartment in the Tendernob that's being described as "spectacular." We do agree that the kitchen is on the nicer side, especially considering the selection of other apartments priced in this range (this particular unit is $2,595/month). There are hardwood floors and both the kitchen and the bathroom were remodeled recently. Cats are OK; no laundry or parking is included.
↑ A very beige 1-bedroom apartment way out in the Lake District can be had for $2,600/month. The apartment is devoid of any character—there's just a lot of carpet and beige paint—but it's move-in real and and the kitchen seems very spacious. No pets, but there's laundry and parking in the building.
