The listing says:

“Nicely furnished condo in a great location near the Cleveland Park Metro and bus lines. Washer/dryer in unit. Lots of light. Hardwood floors and nice appliances. Gym and laundry in building. Leather sofa and chair, plasma tv and other aminities. Secure access. Available now.”

This 1 bed/1 bath is going for $1,900/Mo.

  • $1900 for van ness? this blog has been having the worst rental options recently.

      Well, you’re paying extra for all the local attractions. Like the Burger King.

      • And for the lack of crime, clean sidewalks, etc. But, if squalor’s your thing…

  • People take the worst pictures of their properties – we recently became landlords and I hired a photographer (a friend) and she took excellent pictures of my apartment, which made the difference between a few good applications and a lot of good applications.

    If you shell out $200, you own the pictures of your unit to use for the future and it’s a business expense. I don’t understand why you wouldn’t want your property to look its best, especially if you’re trying to find someone who will pay $1900/mo. If I were renting, it would be a red flag that you skimp on details.

    • Agreed. I personally love how all the photos are deliberately taken to hide whatever the floor is. Carpet? Wood? Parquet? You don’t know! Take a guess!

      Yeah, these pics look like ads for selling the furniture, not the apartment. Zoom out a little! No one cares about the couch or the dresser or the new box of plates on the counter. There are no pics of the closet space or W/D. Plus, there is window A/C. Not worth $1900!
