Living in Washington, D.C.? Here’s what it’ll cost you

Metro is quickly becoming the most popular way to get to and from work in D.C., especially with the addition of the Silver Line. We decided to take a look at what apartments rent for near the most popular metro stops. Hey, even we were curious to know what it’ll cost to live in the nations capital.

While anyone that lives in DC already knows, rents around the city have increased dramatically in the last few years due to strong demand but that doesn’t mean you have to live far away to find a good deal.

DC (Web) smallerRentals in up-and-coming neighborhoods that are just 5 to 10 minutes from the Metro, such as Congress Heights, where 1-bedrooms run $1,041/month or Fort Totten, at $1,543/month offer some nice options with convenient access to the Green, Yellow and Red lines.

However, if you really want to live in the center of the District and have the budget to pay for it, some great options to think about are Foggy Bottom, listed at $2,723/month, north on the Red Line at Dupont Circle, where 1-bedrooms can run you $2,443/month or Mt. Vernon Square at $2,402/month.
