  • “chef’s kitchen” – LOL

      Yeah …………… I got really excited to see a chef kitchen in an apartment, then “Oh.”

    “Monthly condo fee includes ALL utilities.”

    Not sure what this means. Condo fees do not include utilities. Maybe it should read “Monthly rent”?

    • anon

      Well, the tenant doesn’t pay the monthly condo fee, so that should read monthly rent. Though some HOA dues do include some utilities (but typically not all utilities).

      Some condo fees do include all utilities, but maybe it was a cut and paste job from a sales ad.

      I actually read that and wondered if they were passing the condo fee on to the tenants instead of including it in the rent as would be expected. I particularly wondered this because $1900 for a 1br 1ba in Dupont seems super-low to me?
      Ditto on what others said; condo fee may include some or all utilities.

        Good point. I’ve seen a handful of rentals lately that look like a good deal until you realize they’re excluding the condo fee.

            Not worth it if the condo fee is an extra. OK deal at 1900 total given the asking price and the high fee. It probably hasn’t sold at this price because of the fee–utilities wouldn’t explain the high fee—something like $400-450 would be more plausible. They must have some real problems in that building that tghey are trying to fix. I looked itup–it’s a condo, not a co-op. It’s probably a typical 1960s/70s shoebox layout. Not bad LR, tiny kitchen with small appliances.

    This unit was on the condo market and must not have sold. It was for sale a couple months ago.
