Washington, DC

This house (mansion) is located at 15th and S St, NW.

The Craigslist ad says:

“Rent’s $1350 per month, plus utilities (roughly about 75 extra).

You would take over a month-to-month lease, so you can leave whenever you want. Also, would just need $1500 for security deposit upfront.

House includes an amazing roof deck, cleaning service, and 8 friendly, successful house mates. Also, your room has its own full private bathroom with a large shower.

Rooms in this house go quick, so let me know asap. Sorry, though we already have a dog in the house, the landlord doesn’t allow us any more pets.”

I’m pretty sure this was once a “good deal or not” edition but I can’t seem to find it. You can see a virtual tour here.

“A room in this incredible group house mansion rents for $1350. I am dying to know what the story is here!”

Does $1350 for a room in this house sound reasonable?
