I may have found an apartment!

I'm so excited... I have been looking for some time now and I think this may be the one.
Here is the info on it...
Quote:
$850 Large Studio with full kitchen (map)

Please note: studios are for one person only.

The rent for this apartment includes all of the basic utilities - heat, hot water and electricity. If you are looking for a quiet private place (this is in a small (6 unit) building at the end of a dead end street) this may interest you. As far as space goes, there is one large room divided into two areas, the living space and the kitchen. The living space measures 11’ x 13’, has carpet and an air conditioner. The kitchen area measures 11’ x 8’, has a linoleum floor, and comes with a refrigerator and an electric stove. There is a full bath (a tub with a shower). As far as public transportation goes, it would be a long walk to the Quincy Center T; however, it is about a five-minute walk to a bus stop (bus route # 225) on nearest main road (Quincy Avenue). The building itself has security locks on the doors, an intercom system, coin operated washers and dryers downstairs and a parking lot for off street parking. We do not allow dogs (sorry) but most other pets are acceptable.

Our monetary requirements to move in are 2-1/2 months rent total (first month's rent, last month's rent, and a half-month's rent for the security deposit) and we do leases on all of our apartments. The way we get the deposits is when you do the application you leave one month's rent as a deposit (which becomes the last month's rent deposit upon acceptance of the application), when you sign the lease you leave the first month's rent, and the day you pick up the keys you give the security deposit.
What do you think about the size? I just want enough room to have people over on like a Friday night. I'll try and send pictures when I get home.

I work at home and the room I use for my office is 11' x 13'. Depending on the configuration you could probably put a small couch or love seat and a couple small chairs and a small TV/stereo center. 4-5 people max.

Hey, small world...I was on the Braintree section of Quincy Ave on Saturday .

I just looked it up and saw the pictures. Cute! Kitchen is nicer than mine, and I don't even have a bathtub, just a shower!

Wow, $850 for a studio ? Around my neck of the woods you'd get at least a 2 bedroom in a fairly new complex.

Yeah, I know......location.location.location, but STILL!

Ya I know... I was thinking to moving to PA, I could get a 1br apartment there for 600 with all utilities. But all my friends are her in MA and I can't leave that.

The area she's looking in is 15-20 minutes outside of Boston. I'm an hour out of Boston and I just did a quick search...studios in this area are going for $625-800. New England is very expensive....
