  • That’s too much for any basement apartment.

  • if it’s large, furnished, and utilities are included, yes. You pay extra to avoid utilities and although most folks don’t look for a place that’s furnished, that costs more too.

  • I think it’s reasonable. Not a good deal, but reasonable. Basement apartments on The Hill go very quickly. (Or maybe there just weren’t a lot available last summer when I was looking?)

  • 1,000 square feet is a lot of space for a basement apt. usually they’re 700 sf. and usually basement apts don’t come with a deck.
