A $1600 monthly budget for an apartment can stretch pretty far in many parts of the country. Unfortunately, Washington, D.C’s rental market isn’t as budget friendly. The average D.C. one bedroom is close to $1700/month, but a studio is more likely available in that range for those wanting to live in D.C. proper. Luckily, outlying areas of the city and parts of Virginia and Maryland offer some relief. And in nearby Baltimore, rents remain more affordable. Here’s a look at what’s renting this week in these two cities for $1600:
