“I was wondering if you could do a Good Deal or Not for this rental in Mount Vernon Square? I’m hoping to move into that area with a couple of friends and am wondering what your readers think of both the neighborhood and the $2000 price for a two bedroom, one bath. Do people living in the neighborhood feel like the proximity to Chinatown, CityVista, etc is worth the slightly sketchy feel?”

I’m not sure if the photos are enough to determine whether it’s worth the $2000 per month but I think this neighborhood is a great one and is going to continue to get better. If the area feels slightly sketch, be sure to walk around at various times of the day to see if this is a place where you and your roomates will feel comfortable living.

What do you guys think – does $2000 per month sound reasonable for this 2 bed/1 bath?
