What $3,000 rents you in San Francisco right now


Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a regular column exploring what you can rent for a set dollar amount in different neighborhoods. Is one person’s studio is another person’s townhouse? Today’s price: $3,000.

↑ Does the ad for this $3,000/month Noe Valley apartment see the world through rose-colored glasses, or is that just the abiding hue of the home inside and out thanks to its paint job? Actually, the landlord for this one-bedroom, one-bath place on 22nd Street really has something going with the copy on this listing: “Feeling frustrated with the lack of quality rentals? Tired of showing up with hope and leaving with despair? Sick of the damn dental floss always breaking between those same two teeth? I know, right?” It’s like they can see into our hearts. The ad also promises “nice size hall closet so you can accumulate all kinds of worthless garage sale finds” and “kitchen with gas appliances, perfect for playing out your own Iron Chef fantasies.” Pets are okay, but “no tropical jungle animals or wild game.” Can this ad please never end?
