The basement is furnished with a large IKEA geometric bookshelf that separates the bedroom from living space, a red love seat, two end tables and a coffee table. There’s a small kitchen but no stove. The previous tenant used a counter convection oven and burners. Perfect for young professional / student!

RENT: $975 a month. $975 deposit. 6-month lease preferred but not necessary. We can do a month-to-month—I am flexible. Credit/background check ($30 application fee). Utilities are split with the main part of house. Utilities (which are separate from rent) will be for Comcast with box and remote / WIFI, gas, electric, and water which runs an average of $100 a month.”

Does $975 sound reasonable?
