    Looks clean and in good shape. I’d say good deal depending on the size of the bedrooms.

    POP commenters have recommended companies who specialize in providing these older homes and/or garden apartments. were there any that would be recommended by the crowd today?

    We’re interested in renting our Petworth home out if we temporarily move abroad. I’m curious to see if others think this is a fair or above market rental rate? We’re thinking about renting out just the upstairs and closing off the basement for our own storage. Our kitchen is more updated and there’s off-street parking.

    But no central AC, and the rooms look small. Kitchen is awkward. And basement is unfinished, not a pleasant place to do laundry. I dunno, it’s an okay location but not THAT close to the subway. I kinda can’t believe renters would pay that much. Maybe a group house situation?

    That seems a little steep to me. I rent a three bedroom row home near there, and the rent is around $2100 for all three of us. The problem is with houses around here is sometimes the owners don’t do a great job of flipping them, so they’re not well insulated or they have bad wiring. Our heating/water/electric bills are ridiculous and we keep the thermostat at 76 in the summer, and just turn the heat off in the winter because it all leaks out.

    Just check everything out more closely than we did. Also, crime has definitely risen in my opinion over the last two years here. I’ve heard at least five gun shots through out this year.

    Across the street from MacFarland Middle school? Not a good location in my opinion!
