Holy shit that's an amazing deal! Now you're making me pissed because I thought I got a steal paying $650 w/ no utilities (of course, $650 still ain't bad compared to what most people are paying from what I've heard).
That's ok, I'm a bit of a craigslist savant, so it's a bit aberrant It's also the deal of the century, possibly because our landlord lives in Marblehead and has apparently failed to check the market rate for rent in Boston for several years. Technically, my rent is $433, and the landlord pays half of our utilities, making the grand total of $500. Just to rub it in, my room is actually not a coffin either But, you are right, 650$ is a lot less than many many people are paying for rent in Beantown, so you got a good deal!
