  • Holy crap that’s expensive, even if it does come furnished. Plus you have to pay electric on top of the rent?

      That doesn’t surprise me — many (most?) condo buildings are individually metered for electricity, and as a landlord, I wouldn’t want to subsidize a tenant’s taste for (say) excessive A/C.

      The condo building where I used to live was individually metered for electricity, but not for water. There was no gas.

        I’ve been pleasantly surprised my tenant only uses slightly more electricity than I did. Ymmv though.

    this seems high. no?

      It is… would be surprised if it didn’t sit for a while.

    I live on this block. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overpriced. Nice place and solid location. But this is still a pretty tough block. My building, basically directly across from the park, has had three bikes stolen and numerous packages taken. Also, while the police presence has dropped, a lot of dicey behavior in front of the projects. Including my girlfriend having eggs thrown at her and my roommate being called numerous homosexual slurs while out walking his dog. I bought my place and have definitely seen improvements over the years; but it has not improved enough to warrant that type of price tag.

    Seems very high for 2 bedrooms and only 1 bathroom. I kind of think they’re trying to get the renter to also pay the monthly condo fee.

    Beautiful condo! Location is pretty central. Price pretty standard for the area and how nice the condo looks. Found the listing at this link since it looks like link above does not work:

      ^^^^ The owner?

    • Vermonster

      When you go back to lower the rent for your overpriced listing, I think you also meant to refer to it as a “quiet” balcony.
