I’ll probably dig into this in more detail later, but I don’t understand how rent is determined in downtown area apartment buildings that are run by companies rather than individual property managers. We moved into our apartment in downtown Baltimore on August 11th. At the time, the cheapest way to do it was a 14 month lease (we wanted to do 15, but it was more expensivethe, for whatever reason). The unit two doors down is 100 sq ft larger, and can be moved into tomorrow for a 15 month period at a monthly cost that’s $100 cheaper than what we are paying. We will soon have neighbors who are paying less than us per month to get essentially the same unit as us but with a den added on. A unit we considered that was similarly priced to ours is now $500 cheaper per month than it was a month ago. I was perfectly fine with what we signed on for when we did it, but it’s a bit troubling to see prices so significantly cheaper just a month later. It seems unfair that I have to pay as much as $6,500 more per year than someone who just moved into a similar unit a month later than me. Is this normal?
