Do Basement Rentals Really Go For This Much These Days?

“Dear PoPville,

I saw this posting for a basement rental in Bloomindale [Adams St NW at 2nd St NW] and I was curious to get readers perspectives on it.


Our brand new, fully renovated walk-out basement on the border of LeDroit Park and Bloomingdale will be perfect for someone who loves light, a big open feel, and close access to all the activity on Georgia Ave, U St, North Capitol and 1st St! Large south-facing windows let in direct sun all day long, to compliment full-height ceilings, exposed brick, and full-sized entry/exit doorways. The unit has a contemporary styling, tile floors, and all brand-new stainless appliances. It has in-unit laundry (washer/dryer), Elfa storage solutions in the closet, and is completely closed off from the upstairs–complete privacy! Although there is plenty of street parking, off-street parking is negotiable. We are asking $2,300/month.

The place looks pretty sweet but I was a little surprised to see how much it was renting for. Has bloomingdale come this far?”

Ed. Note: I think it depends on how much light the unit gets. And obviously this one is totally renovated too. So what do you guys think is $2300/mo reasonable for this one?
