Like yesterday’s rental option this is also a property that I’ve walked past many times and have been super curious about the prices. Do you think $2900 sounds reasonable for this 2 bedroom?

  • No parking?

  • That’s ridiculous. Save your money for a down payment on something. You could pay a mortgage on a two-bedroom for $1,000 less.

  • $2900 is about right for a 1000 sq ft 2 br in the hood. You can’t get a 1 br for $2000/month mortgage in this hood.

  • I’ve been apartment hunting and I think this is a good deal. A typical price for a 2-bedroom in this neighborhood seems to be $4000-5000, believe it or not. And these are one level apartments! And whoever said you can afford a mortgage on less is waaaay out of touch with real estate prices.
