    Nice, price seems fair if you’re looking for furnished. 5-1 ends up a group house.

      Although I’d have a hard time swalling the 1.5 bathrooms at that price.

    The price seems like a big reach for only 1.5 bathrooms. If I were a family, I’d pay no more than $3000-3200.
    If they intend to rent as a group house, there’s no way they would get this price.

  • Great deal! I bet it is rented by the weekend.

    I actually think this could be a great deal for 3 people (late 20s, early 30s?) looking for a ‘group house’ alternative. Agree that the 1.5 bathroom situation isn’t ideal, but $1,300 would be a great deal for a huge house, parking, spare room, etc.

      but not those in their 40’s, 50’s or 60’s?

        i love the golden girls just as much as the next person, but i don’t think that age group is the typical demographic for group living.

      FWIW, I’ve lived in a group house with 4 people for the past 6 years, and we have 1.5 baths. We really haven’t had any issues with bathroom conflicts.

    If it were me renting out my house furnished while I’m on assignment or something for a year, I would most certainly NOT be renting it out as a group house.

    Cute house, but this is overpriced, IMO. If it were closer to the metro or closer to downtown, sure. But not for 1.5 baths in MtP.

      Not close to metro? Are you kidding? The Columbia Heights metro is no more than 4 blocks away. Plus lots of bus lines 2-3 blocks away.
      It’s a beautiful space – good deal.

        I didn’t say it isn’t close to the metro, I said it would be more worth it if it were closer. Google says it’s a 10 minute walk, which really isn’t bad, but factoring in the cost + 4 people sharing bathroom (assuming one person per bedroom) + 10 minute walk, I think it’s overpriced.

        Not that I agree with their point, but anonnn didn’t say it wasn’t close to metro. Sometimes the reading comprehension leaves a lot to be desired around here.
