SE Washington DC Apartment Rental For The Brave

Font Size » Large | Small

If you’re OK with being kinda far from downtown, Frank Emmett Real Estate has just the place for you. It has all the things a broke college student should expect for their first home—reasonable rent and rats. To be fair, I didn’t see a rat inside the apartment…just one sitting near my car when I came out. And it must have been used to people because it didn’t moved when I shrieked. The outside looks a little less than charming because of the brick and steel fencing.
The floorplans are huge! They definitely didn’t lie about that on There was plenty of space in the unit I was shown. There wasn’t as much closet space as I would have liked. They claimed it was a walk-in closet, but I found it to be more of a “look-in” closet. Overall it seemed worth the price.
Marshall Heights isn’t the worst neighborhood in DC, either. There are a lot of places that deliver, there’s a nice mom & pops place to get basic groceries that’s right on East capitol, and a rec center nearby.
For people who don’t drive, I wouldn’t suggest moving there. The metro is SUPER far and even though there was a bus stop a few blocks from the place, I didn’t see any buses pass or people waiting on the bus. It was like 9:30 in the morning, so th ere should have at least been people going to work.
There are hardwood floors, so in the wintertime, that might be an issue. They have a decent laundry room, but there was this wacky looking navy blue tile flooring. I felt like I was a chess piece half the time. That same tile was also in the lobby. I’m a little stuck up, though so that probably won’t bother anyone else.
The place is ok–especially if you are on a budget or you enjoy walking (really far) to the metro. Rent is in the mid $800′s for a 1Bedroom and utilities are extra. I would give it 7 outta 10.
