    I would be interested to know what happens with this. I have a 4 bed + 3.5 bath house on 7&H that I’m thnking of renting fully furnished. It’s pretty different – ours is a complete renovation, brand new everything, and upscale (leather couch, expensive furniture and art work etc)… wondering if I can get 5.5K (one of the bedrooms is pretty small, more of an office). The master has vaulted ceilings, second bedroom has private balcony, and third bedroom is in an inlaw suite (comes with living area and wet bar). If anyone has an opinion on what I should price it at I’d be grateful :)

      I think that price is really, really ambitious.

      So 3 real bedrooms with 1 in the basement, 3.5 bath furnished at 5500/month? Something close to 1800/month per person seems really steep to me even with higher end finishes and furnishings. Why did you settle on that number?

      • Mary

        Thanks for trying to help me think it through. It is really high end. So I was thinking 3 professionals would hare it for <2k per month each. It's a 60 second walk to the new whole foods. if you were to buy all this furniture it would cost you $20K, so if you're brand new to city and only expect to stay a few years tha'ts worth something. I also know the condos go for around that much for a 3 bedroom. Granted this doesn't have a pool, but it's a whole house.

        You still think it's unrealistic?

          I’d guess that most people who can afford $1800/month on rent aren’t looking to live in a group house. (Even if the group is only three people.)

          • Anon Spock

            I see a fair amount of 1500-ish/room unfurnished grouphouses in dupont, u st to disagree. Not a huge market, but it’s out there.

        • Anon Spock

          Whole house vs condo or apt really depends on the person. Some would easily value the pool, gym, concierge more. .
          Ultimately if you have comparable condos (renting not simply listed) at your price point, go for it. Are they furnished or not, what amenities, etc etc? Consider all the variables.

            Thanks all for your thoughts….DC people are nice.

          See also this recent discussion on renting furnished vs. unfurnished:
          Most people aren’t interested in paying a premium to live with someone else’s furniture, and your expensive furniture is likely to sustain more wear and tear from tenants than it would if you were living there.

    • That price for a 3 person share in that location just seems crazy. Renters don’t care about vaulted ceilings, leather couches or your choice of art work. But it is easy enough to check the comps.
