    I’m sorry, but $2800 for a basement unit there? Good luck.

      I was thinking well, at least it has big windows and such… Then I put the address into Google Maps and now I fully agree with you. Overpriced!

      Exactly what I was thinking. I’ve seen basement units for rent at that price in Georgetown!

  • This is a joke, right? That living room isn’t even big enough to have a couch.

  • Tony

    Several blocks up you can rent a house for close to that amount. Haha, good luck with getting that price for your basement dungeon.

    “State of the art” would only apply if they could 100% guarantee it wouldn’t flood after a biblical deluge.

  • anon

    Basements DO flood. Not that I’d ever live in one.

    Even so, this is overpriced for a even a “state of the art” basement apartment.

    Property records indicate owner paid $1.425M for the house last October, thus, I can understand wanting some help with the mortgage, and I can also understanding having different notions than the rest of us about what things are worth.

      I guess they need to come to terms with the fact that you have to set the rent amount at market rate (or below) — you can’t charge above market just because you have a huge mortgage payment. (Well, you can, but you’ll have trouble finding tenants.)
