People are shocked to discover a stunning Philadelphia apartment is being rented out for only $2,765 a month
A TikToker gave a tour of her spacious Philadelphia apartment hoping to find a new tenant.
And while she did, her video tour went viral, as millions of people were in awe of the size and elegance of her apartment.
People were shocked by the amount she was paying. Some said it was worth $10,000 a month in rent.
The internet is in awe of a spacious Philadelphia apartment that's being rented out for $2,765 a month, according to a TikToker who posted a video tour. Many people believed it's worth at least $10,000 a month.
Darien Aunapu, a 26-year-old who works in data analytics, shared the video of her apartment to TikTok on Friday, where it reached around 1.1 million views. Aunapu told Insider she's since taken it down because she's found a new tenant. But she's very aware that her video has gained a lot of reaction and reposts to other platforms, like Twitter.
In her original video, she walked viewers around her spacious two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom apartment while narrating all of its features.

"I can't believe I'm saying this, but we're moving out of our apartment and are looking for someone to take over the lease starting June 1st," Aunapu said at the start. (She told Insider she's leaving her enviable rental because she's in the process of purchasing a home.)
Aunapu talked about the apartment's many benefits, including central heating and cooling, walk-in closets, floor-to-ceiling windows, an ice maker, marble flooring, among other practical and charming features.
One of the more striking additions of the apartment, she said, is the "incredibly detailed molding" and the fine Corinthian columns. She also praised the way the corner window could be opened, which is especially nice in the spring and fall, she said.
She added that the building has a gym and is pet-friendly.
"I seriously love this place so much," Aunapu concluded her tour.
The clip immediately went viral and drew many comments questioning why she would leave such a fantastic apartment. Many people thought her apartment was worth at least $10,000 a month — if not much, much more in a place like New York City.
The TikTok was re-shared on Twitter, where it received even more attention. "How this apartment is not 10,000/month is insane to me," the user @@tim__fitzgerald wrote.
"This would be a million in NY," someone commented.
"WHAT. Do you have to share the space with an angry ghost or something?!?" someone else joked.
Aunapu said she thought the rent price comments were funny to read through, and she's not quite sure if this apartment is over or under market value for a city like Philadelphia.
"Some people thought it was way overpriced whereas others said it could've been worth more," she said. "It's not my area of expertise, and it's really the owners who are affected by the rent, so I didn't pay much attention to those specific comments."
Soon after posting the video on TikTok, Aunapu received tons of interested applicants. She told Insider she selected a small group to do in-person tours. From there, she was able to find the right applicant in that pool to take over the apartment. (Lucky them!)
