What $2,900 Rents You in DC

by Lark Turner

This week in What X Rents You, UrbanTurf looks in the $2,900 a month range to see what choices are out there for prospective renters in the DC area with this monthly budget.


What $2,900 Rents You in DC: Figure 1

A Three-Bedroom Rowhouse in the H Street Corridor

Round up two friends and get this place for $1,000 a month each (or round up three and save more, given the size of the master bedroom and the finished basement). With its classic Victorian styling, big kitchen and spacious layout, the price seems like a relative bargain for a location in proximity of 12th and G Street NE. A partially finished basement offers a lot of storage space for that roommate who tends to hoard furniture. The house is available starting on April 1.

1,000 Square Feet On Swann Street

This bright and airy one-bedroom loft between Dupont Circle and U Street offers just one bedroom at the price point, but brings about 1,000 square feet of open space and 14-foot ceilings to renters willing to drop this monthly rate to live alone. The bedroom has plenty of windows, there is a working fireplace, and overall the place has a roomy appeal, and strays away from the standard luxury finishes renters may find at Class A residences elsewhere in the city.

A Second-Floor Unit in a Shaw Rowhouse

This renovated unit in a rowhouse in Shaw looks spotlessly clean and recently redone. The unit has a private deck off the kitchen, an open-concept layout and an extra half bath. Renters can pay an additional fee for parking.

    I like this concept. It's cool to see how far your dollar will go (or not go) in different parts of the city. Will definitely check out this segment regularly.

    I pay that for 900 sq ft/ 2 BR in Georgetown with all utilities incl.
