    good location, but kind of a scrubby looking basement apartment. and PS if you have a wall AC unit, it’s not CAC.

      I also have to wonder if the choice not to include a photo of the bathroom was on purpose…

    • Anon

      True, but that’s a steal for a 2 BR at this location. I’m guessing some kids in their 20s will hop on this fairly quickly.

      At least they said “WALL CAC,” though — not just “CAC.”
      .
      I guess the real estate agent must think the terms “CAC” and “air conditioning” are interchangeable.

      It looks like a mini-split, so its in that weird zone where its not a window unit, but not CAC either.

  • textdoc

    It took me a moment to figure out that “MARID” must have been meant to be “myriad.”

      I kind of want to go Rambo on them just for this! No one this illiterate should ever be in charge of anything ever.

  • anon

    this can’t be real can it? I pay 1400 for a 1 bed basement in the area and I know that is a steal but 2 bedrooms????

    • Anon

      I’m sure its real. I pay less for a larger 2bd in the general area.

    • Hmmm

      How does one squeeze a 2br into 770 sqft? Did they repurpose a closet?

      • Anon Spock

        I’ve seen and been inside of smaller places. I’m talking sub 700. Bedrooms are usually tiny.

        I actually came to my building to look at a different unit than I ultimately bought. The place I came to look at was a 600 ft2 2-bedroom. After living here (in a 675 ft2 *1*-bedroom), I discussed with my immediate neighbors about how they knocked down walls to make their 580 ft2 2-bedroom into a workable 1-bedroom, and visited the buyers of the 600 ft2 2-bedroom who did the same. Many, many developers have put up random walls and worked some funky layouts to “sell” a place, I guess.
