    Before anybody gets confused, it’s 3 bedrooms.

      That is usually what 3 bed means….

        Yeah, I was just expecting and trying to head off a confused thread starting with 8 rooms.

          I’m guessing this is an appeal to many foreigners who may not be used to the US “BR” speak.

            It’s rather odd. I was wondering if perhaps the listing agent was a non-native speaker of English, but his name suggests that he isn’t.

    I’d haggle it down to $3200 and call it a day. If you had two full baths, you’d be able to get this price.

    i am inclined to say that this is maybe a few hundred dollars overpriced. only because i would assume this will go to a group and the prospect of paying over 1100k+/mo to be off Sherman and share a bathroom seems just a tad overpriced. lovely home though.

      Yep, this is exactly my line of thought. I ain’t paying more than $1100 to share a bathroom with two other people in the morning. There’s plenty of better priced group houses out there.

      Sherman is not that bad or at least not any worst than anywhere else in that area, at least not until you’re south of Irving.

      • JF

        Sherman is not that bad at all, I agree. But it is it is a little rougher around the edges and a bit less convenient (for those who like their amenities to be outside their door) than say between 11th street and 16th street.

    “Trendy Giant food?” Because “epic craphole Giant” was too honest?

    Why would I pay almost $1200 to share a house with two other people way over by Sherman? Overpriced.

    I wonder why the owner has renovated the place but isn’t trying to sell it. I’m also a little surprised that it’s apparently being advertised before the renovation is complete (“Off street parking to be created & W/D to be installed”).

    can anyone tell if this price includes utilities? or would you have to pay them separately?
