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: $1,200.
↑ 3204 Manchaca Road, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo, $1,200/month: This 470-square-foot home off South Lamar has been updated with bamboo floors and new appliances and includes a washer/dryer. Owner maintained and managed. Dogs okay.
↑ 307 East 33rd Street, one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, $1,200/month, 892 square feet. Old-school in a good way, this UT-area apartment in Hyde Park is perfect for students and probably other people, too. Pets are not mentioned.
↑ 1202 Parker Lane, two-bedroom, one-and-half-bathroom apartment, 1,030 square feet, $1,199/month. This looks like a standard rental in an East Riverside complex, though getting two bedrooms for the price is pretty unusual. Pets allowed, no breed restrictions.
↑ 2625 Gwendolyn Lane, two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex, 1,100 square feet, $1,250/ month: This duplex home in the Far South Cherry Creek neighborhood features a fair amount of space and a patio, though it looks like maybe not much of yard. Cats and small dogs allowed.
↑ 6000 Shepherd Mountain Cove, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo, 706 square feet, $1,200/month: This Northwest Hills condo is just west of Highway 360 and is fairly close to the river and the Bright Leaf Preserve. It has updated finishes and appliances, along with what looks like a good view.
