The Scoop: Rentals for $1,500
Life in the big city has many perks including exquisite food, access to the arts, tireless nightlife, and diversity. But all of this comes with a high price: rent.
We took a trip around the States to see what $1,500 would get us in a few of our favorite cities:
It took some work to find a nice place in San Francisco for $1,500 (rental prices have skyrocketed over the past year), but we found a gem! This Lower Nob Hill–and no, we don’t mean Tenderloin–studio sports an exposed brick wall, hardwood floors, and other niceties like a walk-in closet and claw-foot bathtub.
If white walls and cheapie fixtures drive you crazy this Seattle studio is for you. While this place won’t be for everybody, we’d be proud to entertain guests here with bold accents like colored walls and blown glass light fixtures to bring everything together.
While not officially located in the heart of Washington, D.C., this Brightwood Park one bedroom looks like a comfortable place to call home for a reasonable price. The modern, stainless steel and granite kitchen is on the tiny side, but we’ll look past that for one big reason: in-unit washer and dryer. If heading to the laundromat in the dead of winter, or the high of summer isn’t your idea of a good time, this apartment is for you.
What does $1,500 a month get you in your community?
