↑ In Trinidad, this rowhouse is on the market with granite countertops, an open floor plan, and recessed lighting. The unit is pet-friendly and comes with in-unit laundry. While a little over budget at $3,200/month, renters may still find this listing worth it, especially since it has the highest number of bedrooms than any other unit on this list. This rental comes with four bedrooms, but unfortunately only one-and-a-half bathrooms. The square footage totals 1,400.
↑ Brookland's luxury apartment development, Monroe Street Market, is offering this two-bedroom, two-bathroom rental for $3,123/month. The 1,059-square-foot unit comes with a washer and dryer and amenities like a fitness center, on-site retail, and a pet-friendly environment. The Brookland-CUA Metro station is only a block or two away.
↑ For $3,189/month, renters can live two blocks away from the White House at Camden Grand Parc. This two-bedroom, one-bathroom rental in Downtown offers 927 square feet of space as well as a close location to the McPherson Square Metro station.

↑ This furnished two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is located in the second floor of Mount Pleasant's Argyle development. A few of the amenities that the building offers include a rooftop deck and extra storage. The location is half a mile away from the Columbia Heights Metro station. One of the highlights that this listing sounds off on is that "sound between [the] walls is virtually non-existent" due to the building being made of concrete. There is also free street parking. The asking price comes to $3,200/month.
↑ At Navy Yard's newly constructed Arris development, the public is able to rent this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment for $3,140/month.
