  • Seems like a fantastic deal. Great location, with all sorts of good entertainment, dining and shopping options and easy Metro access. The building and unit both seem really nice, and the fee is low. I would have jumped all over this if I hadn’t bought a place elsewhere a year ago.

  • Good deal. GREAT deal if you can put down the 20%.

    Fitting 7 windows, and a walled off bedroom and bath, in 500 square feet is pretty impressive.

  • Seems like a great deal. 70K down, and rent this place out for $2,000 a month, gives you 7.5% yield a year, disregarding appreciation and mortgage pay-down.

  • It seems all 7 windows face a brick wall. Terrible.

    And while the price seems low, it’s still $634 or so per square foot. That’s pretty high IMO. The low monthly fees probably help make it a good deal though.

  • Good deal, assuming the building is financially stable.

  • That wall separating the living room and kitchen is just begging to be torn down.

    • I’d make it a half wall/bar/counter. It would add some counter space, maybe some small cabinets underneath, while opening up both the kitchen an living room.

    Not an ounce of character. The place is tiny and as always on the “west side” of town–no washer/dryer.

  • I’d say no to this one. Seems very small for the price and location. You could find an equally large place in CoHi for the same place–why pay that much to live in the suburbs? 😉
