Welcome to Miami’s Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount across various South Florida neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out!

Our previous edition of Curbed Comparisons featured Miami celebrity homes for $20 million or less.

This week, we return to earth and take a look at Miami metro apartments for $1,600 or less. That budget places us about $200 under the median rent for one-bedroom units in Miami-Dade. You’ll notice we see greater value as we head north.

Our list is arranged from south to north.

Brickell: 1430 Brickell Bay Drive #1301


Here’s a 600-square-foot studio in the southern edge of Brickell with tile floors, a bay view, and an updated bathroom.

South Beach: 811 Jefferson Avenue


This one-bed, one-bath in the heart of South Beach encompasses 682 square feet of living space and appears to have recently been renovated.

North Miami: 11930 North Bayshore Drive #1406


Measuring 831 square feet is this one-bedroom apartment in North Miami with one and a half bathrooms, some stellar bay views, and an open kitchen.

North Miami Beach: 3948 Northeast 169th Street #302C


With two bedrooms and two bathrooms is this North Miami Beach residence overlooking the intracoastal. It’s offered furnished or unfurnished.
