Good Deal or Not? Rental Edition


This spot was found by a reader on Craig’s List. The reader writes:

“I’m not sure whether you only like to post houses/rentals that you see on your walks, but if you’re interested in taking Craigslist submissions, I recently came across what is probably the most incredible (as in wtf) apartment for rent in Columbia Heights:

I’m not sure if it’d make a good Good Deal or Not? post because I think the answer is obvious (no), but maybe commenters would have some insight into how the asking price could possibly be so high?”


The spot is located at 1390 Kenyon Street.


The ad says:

“This professionally-designed apartment features dark-stained hardwood floors, grasscloth accent wallcoverings, darkwood cabinets in kitchen and bathrooms, and complimenting granite countertops. Floating wall-mounted cabinetry and an integrated audio-visual system with two flatpanel TVs in living room and master bedroom. Two walk-in closets– one of which has been adapted to a small office ideal for casual work-at-home sessions– can easily be converted back to a closet. ”

So for $5500 – good deal or not?
