Rent my 26th floor Penthouse Studio (REWARD)
Date: February 28, 2010 12:46AM

Hello my name is Rafael and i am moving out March 15th and need someone to occupy this apt when i move out. The a is 650 square feet (average studios are 450); it has a great flow, it's NOT a big square; has an extra large party balcony that can hold 15 people super confortably. Being on the top floor you get the best view. I've been living here for 6 months and my apartment is the closest to the elevators so to me that means i can play my movies as loud as i like where i dont have to worry about neighbors complaining. (eventhough I'm beside the elevators I do not hear the elevator). the wall facing the balcony/outside has huge windows from one side of the wall to the other. My unit has a large heater that i barely use because my apartment stays warm. There is a washer/dryer in my unit, general electric energy saver appliance. The kitchen is luxury kitchen which means it has better applicances, chrome cover applicances. better microwave and cabinets.

The whole reason im posting this is because im moving out and didnt give 60 day move out notice and need to pay a whole months rent for penalty unless somebody moves in. if you choose this apt. i will give you $100 and if you go to rent.com you can get an extra $100 from them (thats what i did, it totally works) I'll even sign you up for it if I have to! Also, I hate bugs, I've never seen any bugs in my apt. I've always had hot water that never ran out, lots and lots of closets. the kitchen has a door and on the other side has a sliding door. out of 20 apartment complexes, I found this one is the best. the balcony is huge and overseas DC. The fees that you will have to pay are garbage chute $4, sewage $10 parking $25 basically all i pay average for utilities including parking is $80 a month. My parking is on the bottom of the garage which is the same level as the corridor to get to elevators. I will also include 2 grocery carts. many cleaning products, and some applicances I will not take with me if you would like them.
Location: 1 mile from 395 off of rte 7. 4 shopping centers in walking distance with restaurants and grocery store. ABC liquor store beside starbucks.

Rent is around $1,100 a month with a year lease. I can email you photos if you are interested.

Where the hell can you get this for only $1,100 a month? Something fishy is going on here.

hahahahaha

there is nothing fishy going on. I find it really funny you say that. im just trying to get out of a penalty fee that i would have to pay if nobody takes over the apartment when i move out. I was suppose to give 2 month notice of moving out. If i find someone to take over my apartment then i dont ahve to pay the penalty. THATS ALL... i pay more then 1100/month due to that i have a short term lease. if you get a year lease then the rent will be around 1100/ month. but of course that is subject to change everyday due to the some kind of equation the property manager comes up with. could be cheaper or little more. but bottom line is....i dont feel like paying 1300 dollars just because i didnt give 2 months notice of moving out. I thought that when my lease was up that my lease is up and i just have to move out. I was way wrong! plz dont make the same mistake i made.

I AM WILLING TO GIVE $300 INSTEAD OF $100 JUST TO GET SOMEONE TO TAKE MY APT. plus of course the $100 extra from rent.com. contact me 4109171187 or email me at rafael_cardona2000@yahoo.com if you are interested.

This is the same building that collapsed during construction is now inhabited almost entirely by smelly arabs and loud mexicans

Maybe I missed it, but how much time is left on the lease?

Will the landlord require the new tenant to sign a new lease?


I bet that $1,100 a month lease will skyrocket when the year is up. It's what Archstone does to its tenants.

you can contact the BLD at 703.820.4000 to find out the occupant type? it is a diverse community but to say loud Mexicans and stinky arabs is a bias statement. eventhough I dont know many of the occupants living there, I have been treated very kindly by the people living in that building. They always say hi to me or hold the elevator. I dont see many people on my floor but the ones i do see are mostly white, but of course i could be wrong because I dont know most of my neighbors.
1. i live closest to elevator. so im in the hallway maybe a total of 15 sec.
2. i work 2-10pm so the only people ive seen is the people accross from me; a soldier; a white lady in her 50's I think; another white couple at the end of the hallway with the guy's brother living with them.

the bulding calapsed during construction happened to Skyline Plaza not Skyline Towers. I wikipedia'd it. http://www.solomonscandals.com/?p=249 check it out. its kind of interesting story and sad that people died.

my lease is up march 15th. you will have to sign a new lease and it does require a $300 move in fee (non refundable but im willing to pay that for you) that will be the "reward" part of the deal. I payed $200 security deposit when I moved in which I will get back because I kept that place just the same as when I moved in.

If anyone is interested in taking a tour around my apt and around the blding please let me know. text me so that I know and can meet you in the lobby to accompany you. 410.917.1187

thanks,
Rafael

I believe you must have permission from the leasing office to have anyone else living with you. Everyone living there must be on the lease. this is a studio. eventhough, it is a nice "L" livingroom/bedroom that can fit 2 beds comfortably with the L deviding the beds with lots of room. this is a studio apartment. Ive was in the army for 4 years in a combat unit so im used to living with roommates in a studio style apartment. but this is a question that can be brought up to the leasing office 703.280.4000 (leasing office) open 9am.

I can understand the internet/ meeting at 10pm issue. I am an Army Veteran 29 years old with a bachlors degree in IT with security clearance. If you look at my craigslist posting you will see my class A military Uniform. I am the most humble person and for security reasons you can bring the security guard along or tell him im showing you my apartment and request that I give him my ID. Im just telling you what times im available but what ever is most convenient for you, I will be flexable to your schedule.

here is my craigslist posting with pics http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/apa/1619816101.html

Rafael

When I did the Schützenschnur the rifle range was closed, so none of us could get silver or gold. I hated the machine gun, but their HK pistol is soooooooo much better than the piece of shit M9.

for a studio being 650 Sq FT where the average studio is about 500 Sq Ft. I personally find it roomy for all my stuff. the way I think of it is. id rather have my bed, coffee table, tv, computer desk in my bedroom with plenty of room to walk around. VS. a one or two bedroom apt. that your bedroom will basically be a small box. this is a bachlor pad. on the top floor. when I rented this apartment i had looked at 20 different places. especially for a studio because I wanted to live alone. if you find anything nicer within the area cheaper please let me know cause i dont think you will find one.

why you gotta troll me like that (like livin in a sardine can GUY).
