  • Good deal given the location. The interior pictures would be much more appealing if there wasn’t so much clutter everywhere.

    • Wow…I’d hate to see what you have to say about my house. A few shelved and out-of-the-way books, a few plants, and a coffee maker = “so much clutter?” I swear people aren’t allowed to have furniture anymore, because their house is “cluttered” with those pesky beds and chairs littering up what could be “spacious rooms.”

  • Looks tiny with an awkward layout – but it’s a roof over your head in an excellent location.

  • I’m sure it’s tiny but it’s in a great location and looks very charming.

  • I love the repeated use of “apartment home” instead of calling it a studio. I can’t believe that’s what studios are going for in this area now! When I first moved to DC in 1999, I got a basement studio at 16th and U for $600 per month. I just saw that unit renting for $1350 – crazy!

    • Which is $57 increase a year for 13 years. Not that awful, but, yes. The rents are too damned high.

    • It’s over 9% a year in increase – that’s pretty amazing to me.

      • Actually, yes $57 is over 9% of the initial $600 rent, but that isn’t how rates are calculated since they are compounded over the 13 years. It really works out to just over a 6% increase annually for 13 years – which is pretty reasonable.
