The Craigslist ad says:

“This is a basement studio apartment of a row house with a rear entrance. It’s located in Petworth, just 10 minute walk from the Petworth Metro station. This newly renovated apartment is a loft style open space that runs the full length and width of the house with a full bathroom and kitchen. Kitchen has all new appliances, and bathroom has full-sized washer & dryer. Near Howard University, Columbia Heights, U St shops and restaurants, perfect for a single person or a student. $950/mo utilities included. There is one thing that you should know about this space – the ceilings are relatively low (7’ or so with heating pipes that hang down from the ceiling to about 5’10 in places), so extra tall people, this is not the apartment for you. Only looking for a non-smoker with no pets. Requires first month’s rent plus $950 security deposit. Full application/credit/reference check ($35 fee). Available immediately.”

Do you think $950 sounds reasonable? If not what do you think is a more realistic price?
