While the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in the District is currently $1,875, Trulia’s recent research found that 37.8 percent of one-bedroom homes in the city rent for more than $2,000.

That may seem steep, but the percentage of one-bedrooms that rent for more than $2,000 is actually higher in San Francisco (90.6 percent), Manhattan (89.3 percent), Boston (66.8 percent) and Brooklyn (51.3 percent).

In D.C., 13.1 percent of one-bedroom apartments rent for more than $2,500, 4.8 percent rent for more than $3,000 per month and 0.6 percent rent for more than $4,000.
