are there a good amount of rentals in DC? it's been almost 20 years since i've been there. BFE Oregon (where I'm moving in a month) literally has no apartments and the houses aren't outrageous but they still hover around $250,000 - $300,000 for what would work for us and it's a total seller's market so it's been a serious bitch. especially trying to do 90% of the legwork from Washington (state). the house we're in now has sold for over sticker price, which helps, but we still need a place to move to. good luck! i know you'll find something.

the rental market in DC is fucked. if you have $3k or more per month it's all good. But if not you have to deal with a shortage of housing. A lot of the property in the city is controlled by a few big developers. I knew it was going to be expensive but it's turning out to be much worse than I thought it would be.

DC area cost of living is outrageous. It always baffles me how people can afford to live in the city, cause it's pretty bad out here in MD as well

3k is more than twice the typical mortgage payment (15 year) on a house in a suburb on the West Coast. and you could live in a palace in the South for that.

When I say $3k a month for rent I'm saying that if you're that wealthy you have no worries in DC. You can live in any neighborhood you want. I am not spending $3k per month! If you want something under $2k, though, it's a lot harder to be in the center of the city. And apartments at $2k or less are rented out very quickly.

you can buy homes in parts of Michigan for $10-$20k. They're that cheap though becaue nobody wants to live there.

it's giving me second thoughts. I could buy a new car and get a very nice apartment in Maryland for less than rent on a tiny space in DC.

but i want to live in the city where there are more queers and queer things to do and I don't want to deal with cars anymore

My cousin lives in Virginia but works in DC as a reporter. She's very, VERY aligned with my political beliefs and it's pretty awesome to hear her talk about going to all those conferences and speeches and whatnot. My immediate family is more the Fox News type crowd and suffice it to say I don't gel with that.
