Time for ‘How Much Should I Charge for Rent’?

living_room_bike

“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking to rent out the house I’ve owned for 6 years, which I’ve been renovating over time. It’s a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom house on Florida Ave. just north of U Street (by Blind Dog Cafe and 9:30 Club). Here are the details:

-3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1220 sq feet (bedrooms are big, medium and small)
-Fenced-in patio/parking area (as in patio OR parking — depending on how you choose to use the space) — with a propane grill and pots for planting if you want them
-Newly renovated kitchen, bathrooms
-Wall-mounted flat-screen TV in living room
-Available partially furnished (for a fee) or unfurnished
-Central air
-Washer/dryer
-Ceiling fans in all bedrooms
-High ceilings
-2.5 blocks to U Street metro

I’m also planning on repainting and replacing a couple windows before the renter moves in (hopefully July 1). As negatives go, Florida Ave is pretty busy/noisy.

Any idea of how much I should charge?”
