There many live/work lofts in Venice! One new development you may want to consider is the Silicon Beach Lofts located in Venice off Princeton Drive. The live/work lofts range in size from 1,000 sq.ft. to 3,700 sq.ft. and were entirely rebuilt with modern touches.

Check out Craigslist and search for comparable 1 bed rentals in Venice that are similar size, similar upgrades and similar amenities. That will give you a good idea on rent range. Also Zillow, rentomenter, Zilpy are sites where you can plug in a address and details of a unit and it will give you a estimated rent range.... more
If the lease is one year of longer, the standard listing commission is 6%, however it is always negotiable. I wouldn't list it much less than this as this commission is split between the listing agent/listing broker and also the selling agent/selling broker and if you do many agents may not show your property to their clients highly reducing the amount of showings your property will receive. If the rental period is a shorter term than a year, it can range between 6-10% on average. I personally handle rentals everyday, feel free to call me or email with any questions you may have. We screen all applicants and run their credit reports.
Have a great day,
