  • Potentially very nice. Only 4 pictures, though? Also, “call owner to schedule showing?” If you’re going to hire a listing agent, isn’t that part of the service? Not certain how that normally works, just found it curious.

  • I wish we had more photos, but the price seems decent for the size, parking, location, etc. Looks like the building has lots of windows along the side. Are they looking over an alley or do they have a better view?

  • I really cant believe the prices people pay for renting compared to my mortgage. I’d honestly be sick to my stomach paying those prices for an apartment—and not being able to save for a place. My first apartment in DC not on the other side of GA ave from here- I paid $875 for a 2 bedroom spacious apartment. Times have really changed.

    • Silly me! Thanks for reminding us all that there are no good reasons to rent, ever.

        I realize that buying is not always practical, but I definitely empathize with anon’s perspective: I was able to save about $100K in my first 10 years in DC, which made it possible for me to buy a house with no PMI and have sufficient cash left over for badly-needed repairs (despite saving that much I don’t get paid that much – couldn’t afford anything renovated or for that matter anything not totally trashed). I was able to save that up because I was paying <$600/month. Splitting this place @ $2600/mo with another person would leave me with $84,000 less available to have saved over a 10-year period, and at the same time, buying has gotten a whole lot more expensive. I have absolutely no idea how new home-buyers will be able to save up for a down payment in the future.

        • Thanks Haile– Don’t see what the big deal with what I said. Like you- I was able to save and now own. No way would I be able to do that today- with how strong the rental market and home markets are.

        • This will ultimately mean the bubble will pop.

    • Maybe in the 90’s you did.

    • palisades

      Tell us more, grandpa! Tell us how you walked uphill both ways from school! Tell us how people didn’t used to lock their doors!

      • Ha! I wish. This was in 2001 actually right after 9/11. I was 20yrs making scraps in the military. Im just saying that most of these people now a days- are young starting out professionals as I was back then. Granted I’m sure the pay gap between young military and college graduates are wide- but I wouldn’t have been able to afford it today. I don’t see how I would be able to save today if I had to pay those high rents. Don’t see what yall issue is. Guess that’s why you are renting way in the palisades…

    • and a Pepsi was only a nickel!

      • “Ooh, don’t poo-poo a nickel, Lisa. A nickel will buy you a steak and kidney pie, a cup of coffee, a slice of cheesecake and a newsreel… with enough change left over to ride the trolley from Battery Park to the polo grounds.”

    • I’ve got mine — and now you can’t have yours. That’s what the U.S. home “ownership” market perpetuates.
