“Dear PoP,

I am planning to move out of my house and intend to rent it. I was wondering if you would ask your readers their opinion on what they think fair market rental value would be.

It is a 2 BR/2.5 BA house in Bloomingdale near Big Bear Cafe on First Street. It is 1200 sq. feet (two levels) and has all new wood floors, a renovated eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, a separate bar area, 2-car driveway parking, w/d, and CAC. I have looked around Craigslist but am having difficulty getting a good sense of the market.”

I enjoy seeing what folks think are fair rates. I’m thinking somewhere in the ballpark of $2750. What do you guys think?
