  • $1100 for a house share in Petworth? That is easily $200 overpriced.

    • I’m not sure where in Petworth you’re thinking of, but we just rented a basement bedroom in our group house on Quincy that’s 1 block farther from the metro for $1150, utilities not included. We have a much nicer kitchen, though.

    • Agreed. This is for ONE room + one bathroom, and a tiny SHARED kitchen with much of the counter & cabinet space blocked by the stove. No living room, no dining room, not much in the way of storage (notice they didn’t post pictures of the closet), nothing but the bedroom. Lord knows who you share the kitchen with, or if you need to install a lock on your bedroom so your “roommates” stay away from your stuff.

    Not that many rentals within houses (basement or otherwise) in DC are legal, but I find it interesting to note that the DCRA PIVS database indicates that owner of this house applied for a BBL for a single-family rental (as appropriate) and it was denied. A BBL can be denied for a bazillion different reasons ranging from stuff important to potential tenants like a failed inspection to stuff that is of no real relevance to the safety of the tenant like an unpaid parking ticket. However, I do find it quite interesting that the owner *applied* for a BBL, it was denied, and [unless DCRA just hasn’t updated their system, which is possible], the owner never bothered to correct whatever the problem was and get the BBL.

    So is there no living room that the renter would have access to? Only the kitchen? If so, definitely overpriced.

  • Good grief, this is not a a 1 BR+1 BA. It’s a bedroom and bathroom in a group house.

  • $40 app fee, $40 move-in fee? Seems petty. With a little effort, I think one could find something better than this place at the same price point.

  • Ha! This is literally a bedroom with a bathroom in it. What a terrible deal!

  • Overpriced. Especially with that tiny kitchen that hasn’t been updated.

  • If you pay $1100 to live in that dump you obviously hate money and hate yourself.

      No need to call this a dump. Lots of us who don’t live in luxury apartments or own newly-renovated homes would be glad to live in a place like this. It’s comparable to my last place, and I did not regard my last place as a dump. Having said that, one would have to be completely 100% in-m***f***ng-sane to pay $1100/month for it. I paid a bit less than half this much for my roughly comparable digs, though. I regard what I had as a good deal, but not such a good deal that I would have been willing to pay twice as much!
