We already know this nabe is crawling with affordable properties, but what about the apartment scene? We know the $1500/month threshold is high for Anacostia. And these apartments don't even graze that benchmark. Not only can you score space, but with your savings from not shelling out too many dollars for your rent, you can take a vacay every now and then. But be wary because some deals are Section 8 only.
1. 2333 16th St
Monthly Rent: $1335
Perks: The listing pics highlight a clean, modern interior. And for that price point in this neighborhood, the renter should be getting quality design. Sure, the pea green wall paint isn't for everyone, but shouldn't the landlord get points for trying?
2.2806 Jasper Rd
Monthly Rent: $859 (inclusive of water and sewer, exclusive of gas and electric)
Perks: This unit has wall-to-wall carpeting, laundry facilities on the property, modern kitchen, tile flooring in the kitchen and bathroom, and plenty of space (at least from what we can tell in the pics) to spread out. And if you've got a roommate, the per renter price is incredible.
1. 1509 T St
Monthly Rent: $699 (excluding electric)
Perks: Advertising itself as the best value in DC, this 1 bedroom apartment has "hardwood floors, new windows", and an updated kitchen. Because this is located about a mile from the Anacostia Metro, this would be ideal for a renter with a car so he or she isn't immobile.
