Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Austin neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,950.
↑ 12300 Riata Trace Parkway, three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, $1,950/month: These photos are pretty good evidence that decorative pink is back, at least for the purposes of staging at this group of Riata complexes north of Research/Highway 183 near McNeil Drive and West Parmer Lane. This one measures 1,400 square feet. It probably doesn't all have to be pink. Cats, small dogs with deposits.
↑ 7811 Manchaca Rd # A, three-bedroom, two-bathroom condo, $1,950/month: Land, lots of land—or at least a fair amount of potentially scary woodland—comes with this 1,776-square-foot condo/partial house on an acre-plus lot in South Austin. Cats and dogs okay.
↑ 4507 Depew Avenue, two-bedroom, one-bathroom house, $1,950/month: It's smallish but not tiny—900 square feet—and close to the booming Airport/Highland area (though also to the train tracks). Pets okay with deposit.
↑ 1712 Karen Avenue #A, three-bedroom, one-bathroom duplex, $2,095/month: A 1,100-square-foot Brentwood duplex that claims no common walls with the other unit, this place seems bright, light, and full of amenities. Cats and large or small dogs accepted.
↑ The Boulevard at Town Lake, 2600 Lake Austin Boulevard, two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, $1,923/month: A pretty standard-looking 1,167-square-foot apartment, this is convenient to both downtown and outdoor activities (hiking, river stuff).
