New, 4 comments

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various cities across the U.S. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,200/month.


↑ Des Moines, IA (2 beds, 2 bath)Converted loft mania is a live in Des Moines! This 1000-square-foot pad comes with soaring ceilings, exposed ducts, and windows with skyline views. It's located in a historic building in the Court Avenue cultural district, which is close to attractions like the Science Center of Iowa and the Des Moines Farmers' Market.


↑ Baltimore, MD (2 beds, 1 bath)—Warm and bright describes this 896-square-foot townhouse in a suburb-like Northeast Baltimore. A brick facade and firetruck red door opens up to carpeted living areas and a galley kitchen.


↑ Jacksonville, FL (3 beds, 2 baths)—This 1,298-square-foot home seems like a quiet charmer. The photos are rather unassuming, but know that the place has a functional fireplace, updated kitchen and bath, fresh paint, hardwood floors throughout, and a generous yard.


↑ Dallas, TX (2 beds, 2 baths) —"Hip and new" is the name of the game in this 900-square-foot home in a freshly renovated complex in northeast Dallas. Interiors sport hardwood floors, granite counters, and a grey color scheme.


↑ Reno, NV (3 beds, 1 bath)—The photos aren't doing it any favors, but this little updated home in Reno, a city famous for casinos and its proximity to outdoor recreation opportunities in nearby Lake Tahoe and ski towns, is newly updated. Highlights include refinished hardwoods, new stainless steel appliances, and wood blinds.
