Finding a place in DC is difficult just due to the shear expense of many of the places.
I found a place that was relatively less-expensive on Craigslist, but take a look at what they wrote back:
-The current tenants are hard of hearing or deaf- the house’s just across from Gallaudet University. We’re pretty much like you except that we can’t speak lol…
-The house is triangle shaped.
-It may be noisy due to the house’s proximity to the intersection. We wouldn’t know lol.
-We have 1 dog, 2 cats and an iguana.
Not to be so narrow-minded, but come on it is weird. As my brother put it, “if you moved there, it sounds a bad sitcom plot.”
