SE Washington DC Apartment Rental For The Brave

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 Apartments.com. 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.
