New, 1 comment

From West Philly to South Philly, there’s a lot of variety

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various Philly neighborhoods. This week, we’re checking out homes at or around $1,400 per month. From smaller (and centrally located) studios to full-fledged homes, there are a lot of different options.

JG Real Estate, via Craigslist

West Philly (3 bed, 1 bath)—This is easily one of the largest spots on this list. It’s a full three-floor house, with a kitchen and three rooms on the ground floor. The next floor has its own room, and the third is is a small space with slanted ceilings. Plus, there’s laundry and off-street parking for one car.

Via Craigslist

Rittenhouse (studio, 1 bath)—At 400 square feet and no bedrooms, this apartment is certainly the smallest place on the list. Despite the size, there are a lot of pulls, like a fitness center nearby, and a very central location—only steps from Rittenhouse Square. Also, feel free to bring your cat along; the fee for having a cat is only an extra $15 bucks a month.

JG Real Estate via Craigslist

Francisville (2 bed, 2 bath)—This apartment is a sleek, tri-level place with a private entrance that opens into a front room and kitchen. There’s a bedroom and bathroom on the lower level, another bedroom on the main floor, and a lofted space upstairs that could be used as a bedroom, office space, or living room.

Ludlow (2 bed, 1 bath)—After a total remodeling, this apartment offers a lot of new—and contemporary-style—details. There’s a stainless steel kitchen, granite countertops, tons of windows, and hardwood floors. Also, feel free to bring your cat (but no dogs).

JG Real Estate, via Craigslist

Whitman (2 bed, 1 bath)—Deep in South Philly you can rent an entire two-story family home for the $1,400 price point. The home has sleek hardwood floors, a patio, a finished basement, a bay window upstairs, and hardwood floors throughout. Added bonuses: laundry in-unit and pets accepted (for a fee).
