“I’m looking to live alone and this seems to be one of the few places I can afford without giving up my social life. Just wondering if this is a good deal or not worth it!”

It appears to be a 504 square foot efficiency going for $840 a month. I’d say for this location that seems right on target but I don’t know much about the particular building and it is hard to judge without photos of the inside. So a few questions – anyone familiar with this building? Are postings like this useful or should I only post ones that have photos of the inside as well? And based on the information we have does $840 seem like a reasonable deal here?

  • I call about that apartment yesterday and I was told that it is already rented.

  • That is an amazing deal for that block. It makes me suspicious about what the inside looks like.

    I lived a block south of there and paid $1200 for roughly the same square footage. But, I did have AC.

  • I’ve heard Barac is a horrible management company. I vistied one of their properties when I was apt. hunting and it was infested with roaches. Most of their properties are infested with roaches or mice.

  • The Barac Co is a terrible management company. I used to live in their buildings and they just don’t maintain them, but given that the rent might be wort it. Believe me, if you ever see their nasty office in Takoma Park (where you have to go to put in deposit, sign lease, etc) you will see why rent is so low.
