Hi! I'm Amit, a Ph.D. Student in Architecture, so, I know something about real estate and walk scores.
The three most important things about real estate are location, location, and location... and an amazing space and view add to that. This units got 'em all!! I'd say this is a great sublet for the summer if you are a graduate student or interning in Ann Arbor. Of course others are also welcome.
The room is a nice large space, approx 15 ft by 12 ft with air-conditioning for the summer, more than ample closet space, a queen size bed, a small writing table, chair, lamps, book shelve, and closet drawer. I hope to hold on to this room for the rest of my long stay in Ann Arbor, so I prefer a respectful clean non-smoker, who should be willing to share the space with my roommate Sriram and his guests(his mom will be visiting). He is going be around this summer and is working on his Ph.D. in media studies.
The room overlooks the Huron River and Huron Park and its lovely riverside walk. So, if you are a summer lover, this is an ideal location for a dip in the water, a run into the woods and all that fun. The building is a nicely designed apartment complex. Its located at a walkable distance between University of Michigans North(15 mins) and Central Campus(10 mins), a shopping area with many nice restaurants, movie theaters and bars(10 min). It is also very close to the Medical Center (5min) and Kerry towns shopping area(10 min). We are well connected to the University of Michigan Blue Bus and Zipcars both at a 5 min walk at Glenn Ave parking lot parking. We are also very close to the Amtrack and Greyhound station( there are only 2 trains a day that I enjoy watching through the window). And so, if you don't have a car, like us, this is an ideal location. Bicycle parking, car parking, on-site laundry and a small work out space are also included.
350$ per month I would say is a steal for an an airconditioned room this size at this location and in Ann Arbor.This offer stands because you will be sharing the bathroom and kitchen with our additional guest. The normal rate I expect is 500$.Sriram pays an extra 100 for your room. The actual rent I pay is 700$. The total of 450$ helps me break even with my fellowship stipend for the summer. You will be sharing the bathroom (which has a double sink so you'll have your own side with vanity shelf) and kitchen. Sriram is very clean and respectful, so you shouldn't have a problem on that front. You may also have a guest, now and then, so I think it should be a fair negotiation. My room is pretty good on itself, so you should be happy in there for the most of it. We also have a nice living room with a grander panoramic view of the river. All utilities(internet and electricity) are to be split between you and Sriram monthly and roughly come to an additional 50$ per head. We have a great management if you ever have any trouble, please visit their site for more information on them and this property at www.a2managementrentals.com.
For long distant renters, I can give you a Skype tour. All others please get in touch and we can fix up a time to meet. Thursday through the weekend is the best this semester. Looking forward to meeting you!
