Price Point: $1,000 to $1,500

Comparing rental prices in and around the District

Alexandria: $1,400

2BR: 8602 Village Way, Unit D, Alexandria

This peaceful apartment complex is a bit out-of-the way (the nearest Metro, King Street Station, is a 5-mile hike). The property has a community feel, with units clustered together and children often playing outside. Inside, this two-bedroom is full of windows, many of which look out onto a quiet courtyard. There is a washer/dryer inside the unit. Bedrooms are spacious, and double closets mean plenty of storage. A handful of restaurants and grocery stores are a five-minute drive away.

Adams Morgan: $1,450

Studio: 1700 Harvard Road, NW, Apt. 610

At the intersection of Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights, this functional studio is sunny, with plenty of closet space, a big window and wood floors. The brick building is no-frills, and the kitchen is cramped — counter space is severely limited, and renters need to bring their own fridge. But there are perks. Utilities are included, and the location is unbeatable — a 10-minute walk to Dupont Circle and steps from Adams Morgan’s restaurant row. (Listed by Urban Igloo)
