    Meh, it’s a little high but someone will definitely rent it.

    Yes, Dasha and I&C are great bars, and the Derek Brown strip mall is nearby. BUT that cross street (again, just my humble opinion) is a $3,600 3/2 type of area. There’s nothing cool about this place, it’s just a renovated rowhouse. If there was a cool outdoor space, a rooftop patio or even parking then sure maybe you can stretch for $3900….

    With these kind of houses you’re looking at one person spending more on the master and the other two kind of picking up the slack. It seems a bit high to expect a $1380/1260/1260 rent split out of this house. I wouldn’t pay more than $1300 tops for a master in a shared house in shaw, but maybe it’s improved enough in DC’s eyes that they can get that now. You can pay 50$ more a person and be in a bad ass house in an ‘established’ neighborhood.

    It’s not a HUGE adjustment, but $3600=$1280/1160/1160 (for example) seems more in-line. But again I could just be not up to date with how people perceive the neighborhood now.

    I live in Shaw, and love it enough that I’m moving to one of the new buildings in the area soon. Which, by the way, aren’t a terrible deal if you are able to negotiate. The flats at the metro still has vacant apartments from like, October and I think (hope?) they’re realizing it’s crazy to ask someone to pay $3200 for a small 2br in the neighborhood.

    Im interested to see what people think about this price. If its reasonable, I need to start thinking about moving out of my Bloomingdale home and taking the money and run!

      Hard call between Bloomingdale and 9th st in Shaw

    Surely rent isn’t that high on this street. I’d say this should be priced between 3000-3300

    Somewhat overpriced…I’d say this should go closer to $3500-$3600. Anything below that is a steal, anything above that, you could do better further west.

    You people are crazy and obviously are not in the Shaw rowhouse market. This is a pretty good deal.

    Looks spacious and very nicely renovated. I think $4K is a little high and $3.7K would have been a more reasonable price, considering there is no deck or parking space or patio. But it will probably still rent though – nice location.
