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: $2,350.
Yes, that’s right: $2,350. Not a ridiculous amount, as Austin rents go, but also approaching the realm of a mortgage payment. Still, if that’s not your bag or not in the cards for you for whatever reason, you can find some pretty sweet digs for families, couples, singles, pets, whatever, in various parts of town.
Take, for instance, the small, quiet area just across Manor Road from Windsor Park’s more well-known housing stock. It’s a longtime, family-oriented neighborhood with the cul-de-sacs and curving roads that make that possible, and it often goes overlooked by renters despite its reasonable prices and appeal.
Similarly, one can still find fetching cottages in South Austin and North Loop, as well as newer, two-bedroom apartments throughout town.
