Out of every Metropolitan city in the U.S., Washington, D.C. has the fifth highest rents, but that doesn't mean that you can't find a good deal in the nation's capital. Real estate blog Zumper recently released the "Zumper National Rent Report," ranking U.S. cities by their rent prices, tracking any changes quarter-by-quarter and year-by-year. Unsurprisingly, San Francisco topped the list with a median monthly rent of $3,500 for a one-bedroom apartment and $4,750 for a two-bedroom apartment. Washington, D.C. followed not too far behind with a median monthly rent of $2,150 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,990 for a two-bedroom apartment. Every week, Curbed DC helps residents find their next rental unit by comparing what options are available for a set price, whether that's $2,000/month or even $9,750/month. This week, rather than stick too strictly to one price point, Curbed DC will instead focus on finding the best one- and two-bedroom apartments on the market that are under the city's median price points. Below, you'll find a range of choices on the market with a $1,550/month one-bedroom unit in Chevy Chase to a $2,144/month two-bedroom unit in Fort Totten. If interested in taking a closer look at how Washington, D.C.'s rents compare to other Metropolitan cities in the nation, you can check out Zumper's rent report here.
