Today I visited a studio apartment that was for subletting for the next three months. 725/month in a semi-ghetto neighborhood. I check out the area/room, and it's almost too good to be true. Quiet, security patrol at night, bomb parking space, etc. There were, however, three things that bothered me.
1. Person drove a very nice Benz.
2. One of the windows was destroyed "by a neighbor".
3. The apartment was checked out by tons of people (according to him, and I believe him after apartment hunting for a couple months), and none of them took it.
4. Upon asking why he was renting it out, he said he was going out of town for a couple months.
