Is it impossible to find a place <$1000 in DC/Arlington? I don’t want to spend more because traveling for work. Any tips? Don’t mind roommates just need a good location.

I don’t mind roommates. I have roommates now but spend $1300+ in Arlington 🙄

You can room with me across the Anacostia. 3bd/2ba for $650 plus util

I live in anacostia (white snowflake female). No problems. It has a rep that it no longer deserves. You got to be close to metro though. But yes good prices

No. It’s easier if you find a place yourself and then find roommates to fill the other rooms. I found multiple 3 bed/2 bath apartments for around ~$3300, determined prices for each room (so then I’d take a room that’s under 1k/not the master), and confirmed decent roommates within a week (via Facebook/Craigslist).

This is in Rosslyn btw. It’s walkable distance from the rosslyn metro. In fact, you can see the apartment building from the station

1500ish for a studio (500 sqft) in Van Ness - that part of town is pretty overlooked in my experience

There are plenty of places available in Capitol Hill row houses for under $1000. Recommend joining Facebook groups and monitoring for posts there, seems like there’s at least a few per day.

A lot of open spots in Bloomingdale where you can probably find for under $1K in a townhouse

I’m moving to Arlington for full time and The only stuff I’ve seen/calculated for below 1000 is a townhouse/renting a house with other people

Cheapest apartments I’ve seen are 1.3k, but those have some major sacrifices involved (not near metro, terrible management, large rent hikes after first year). If you’re going for apartments 1.5k is probably a realistic number (that’s if you do a 2 bed and live with someone else). If you’re planning single, the cheapest I’ve seen is 1.7k :/

It’ll be tough if you wanna live by yourself but you can definitely do it with roommates. I live in Alexandria & pay around $1300 for a 320 sq ft. Studio with utilities included but metro is not within walking distance. Also, most apartment complexes in the Alexandria/Arlington area do have shuttles to the nearest metro station but some don’t (mine doesn’t). Lol

You could split a 2 bedroom 2 bath for $1300-1400 a piece with utilities included in a nice building

I pay $1000 in crystal city

I have roommates in the Buchanan and have the smallest bedroom which is still quite large

I pay 1k in Capitol Hill

House with lots of roommates not near metro

You can but it’s tough. Recommend using gracdc housing board as there is always stuff below market on their (ie individuals renting a room in a house etc). (keep in mind its for Christians so you would need to be ok w the religious thing)
