  • $625 a foot?!?!? Um, no.

  • I have one of those tiny washing machine/dryer combo things in a temporary apartment I live in and it’s a pain to do laundry. Also the lint screen is hidden in the back of the dryer, I pulled it out and there was a small wookie in it, could have caused a fire. P.S. This place is overpriced.

    900 square feet divided into two bedrooms and two bathrooms? Love the neighborhood, but that’s just crazy-small.

  • I thought it looked nice. Walk score is 99!? Location, Location, Location!

  • I actually think it’s a fair market price. Despite the size, not sure you could really find a 2BR/2BA in that area for less (and certainly can for much more). Plus, low condo fees have to be in the discussion – many buyers looking at that place may also be looking at condos with fees of $700+ per month.

  • Nicely stage but I can’t help but think the obvious lack of storage could be a problem. Instead of a 2BR/2BA with crappy storage they would have been better with a 2BR/1BA with better storage. I know people hate sharing a bathroom if they have guests or a roommate but guests aren’t there long and a roommate may want a bit more storage.

    As for the price not bad maybe a bit high, considering the location.

    • Good point. The BRs and baths actually look reasonably sized, but I don’t see a lot of closet space or space for a dining area.

      I have a condo that’s also ~900 sf but 2BA/1BA. While there are definitely times when I wish I had the extra bathroom, I’m ok with giving that up for 2 decent size BRs, ample closet space, separate dining area and a larger kitchen.

      I don’t think the price is that out of line though. It’s in a great location, with a reasonable condo fee, natural light, not a basement, and looks fairly recently updated.

  • It’s a bad sign when there’s only one photo of the apartment interior.

    • wait-wait, I didn’t see the ‘more photos’ link. Oops.

      Nonetheless, the photos of the bikeshare and unrelated houses is a waste of time.

  • I rent in this building (share a 2BD/2BA). Our apartment is about 100 sq ft bigger than this one but seems to have the same layout. For closet space, the one bedroom shown should have a walk-in closet. The other bedroom has a wide but shallow closet (two sliding doors). There’s a closet when you first walk in, there’s a closet opposite the living area and there’s a closet in the hallway between the W/D and 2nd bathroom. This is assuming the layouts are very similar. The building does allow pets. Never any issues in the last year and a half.
