    It feels like this could fetch a tiny bit more? Not a great kitchen but two real bedrooms (if they’re really 15×9) in a great renter’s location.

    So. Much. Carpet. :-( Still, probably a good deal overall.

    This is a basement. Doesn’t 2500 seem high? That’s almost as much as I charge for my big 1st floor apt by Lincoln Park which is much nicer than this with a huge chef’s kitchen, deck, hardwood floors, bay window, 1,000 square feet. Mine is a slightly less expensive area but still by the park and in the historic district… Either this is way high or I’m undercharging, but when I put it on the market last winter the demand wasn’t overwhelming. Maybe that was just because it was in December.

      Yeah, basement. Too high for a basement.

      Sounds like you know this market better than I do, but I think places like this with full size windows are closer to “first floor” than “basement”

    More? I was thinking who would rent with that carpet at all.

    It is bad enough that it is in the basement, which can’t be changed, but to take a basement apartment and cheap out on the flooring is just stupid.
