Today’s rental was chosen because at first I liked the sofa, then I read the rental agreement and well, curious to know what you think – and the washer/dryer in the unity obviously – PoPville

This rental is located near the Eastern Market. The craigslist ad said:

“$1,800/2br – 700ft2 – Historic Furnished 2-BR Home, 3 Mins to Subway, Early Jan (Capitol Hill, Eastern Market)

THE RENTAL: We are looking for an ultra-responsible tenant traveling light enough to rent our fully furnished historic 700 square foot, 2 bedroom, 1 bath townhouse starting in early January. We are located 3 minutes walk south of the Eastern Market subway. The house is located on a quiet pedestrian lane.

The initial rental contract runs from January to May. We rent according to the academic calendar, with a new seasonal lease each semester or summer. Rent is an affordable $1,800 including some utilities. Sorry, no pets or smokers and we are looking for a tenant who visits an office/workplace most weekdays. We can explain why we look for this in follow-up correspondence.

The house is set up like an AirBnB, with plenty of supplies provided. We include linens, bath towels, kitchen, laundry, cleaning and ironing supplies, rugs, lamps, hangers, storage bins, phone chargers, etc. In short, everything you need to settle in after your arrival with a few suitcases.

Utilities included are WiFi and Sling TV. Utilities not included are water, gas (heating, stove) and electricity (lights, air conditioning, hot water). The total winter utility bill/month is usually only about $100 in this well insulated little brick house.

The property is just steps from the excitement of 8th St. SE and Pennsylvania Ave. You are close to CVS, 7-Eleven, Starbucks, Trader Joe’s, banks, post office, cafes and restaurants. The Circulator bus for the Navy Yard goes down 8th street. The house receives lots of natural light, has good ceiling height and outdoor space. There is a private, shaded 15′ x 15′ brick patio under a giant elm tree.

The house has a strong WiFi connection and several wall-mounted televisions (in the bedrooms and the living room). Each bedroom has a good ceiling fan. There is a wooden table with a desk chair in the dining area which doubles as a work space and a good sized washer/dryer.

The security deposit corresponds to one month’s rent. Utilities remain in the owner’s name.

To be clear, we are looking for a tenant who is:
* Do not bring more than a cargo of things, do not bring furniture.
*Work outside the home during business hours as a general rule.
* Quiet life. Not a smoker, not a pet, not a heavy drinker or a party type.
*Savvy and safety-conscious city dweller (closes doors and gates reliably).
* Willing to work to keep the place clean/organized enough to keep pests away. We provide cleaning products.
* To DC for a definitive full-time gig; financially sound.

*Each bedroom is compact, approximately 10′ x 12′, but bright, airy and well appointed with good cupboards and shelving. The “Orange Room” has a double bed while the “Red Room” has a queen bed.
*The property is secure with good lighting in a secure area.
*Sorry, no off-street parking and we do not recommend bringing an out-of-state license plate car to the neighborhood.
* There is a Capitol Bike Share station in Eastern Market.


will respond to any serious request from a person wishing to rent meeting our criteria and providing the following elements:

*A few lines about yourself and your goal in DC at the start of 2023. Please let us know where you are contacting us from.

*The approximate start and end dates of the rental you have in mind.

*A statement indicating how much you plan to work remotely from home.

*Confirmation that you won’t be bringing more than a boatload of stuff and that you’re willing to make a real effort to keep the place clean and organized.

If you think you could work for us, we’ll get back to you with an information sheet with more details. We can also arrange a time for you to visit the house in person or via video call.

Good luck finding a spot.
