Price Point: $2,500 to $2,750

Comparing rental prices in and around the District

Mt. Vernon Square: $2,540

1BR: 443 New York Ave. NW, Apt. 723

You won’t notice that the bedroom is cramped — you’ll be too busy on the balcony gaping at the view of downtown D.C. Past the 790-square-foot unit’s gleaming (but small) kitchen and washer/dryer lies an enormous walk-in closet. Yale West Apartments has a fitness center, garage and rooftop saltwater pool. The brand-new building is just two blocks from the Mt. Vernon Square Metro. (Listed through Bozzuto Management)

Arlington: $2,650

2BR: 4400 N. 4th St., Apt. 207, Arlington

Two large bedrooms, each with its own massive closet and well-appointed bathroom, take up most of the unit’s 1142 square feet. The living room would feel a little small if it didn’t open onto a large balcony with a view of the street. The three-year-old building has a fitness center, outdoor pool and garage — which is useful because it’s nearly a mile from the Ballston Metro. A sister building is still under construction next door.
