Rent or Buy? Running the Numbers on Two 1 Bedroom Condos

New, 2 comments


We were pretty excited when StreetEasy, a service long available to our New York counterparts, went live in the D.C. metro area. In addition to being a helpful real estate search engine and aggregate for rental listings they've also given Curbed some numbers to determine whether these one bedroom condos in Penn Quarter and U Street are worth renting or buying. The listed data assumes a 3.73% mortgage rate and a 20% downpayment.
