Rental housing is always a pain to find in the University District, so it's pretty easy for landlords to justify charging ridiculous amounts for the privilege of living really, really close to campus. Another thing that makes charging hugely expensive rent totally effortless: super-modern, cool design. After all, everyone wants to be the ballin' 21-year-old living in sweet digs! It totally lures in the chicks, man! Buying this spot in Ravenna might be an awesome call, then, because the space is plentiful, there are tons of bedrooms (four of them!), and you know somebody is just itching to rent it from you. With over 3,400 sq. ft. going for it, it's the perfect place to avoid roommate conflicts! It's also designed by Whitney Architecture, has some crazy cool amenities (a wine room? what???), and is in a prime location for UW kids. That means you could rent it out at an insane premium! Or, you know, you could preserve your investment and actually live there rather than renting it to destructive college juniors who throw parties every weekend. Whatever. The price tag: $1,365,000. Think about it. · Listing: 2800 NE 68th Street [Zillow]
