A big problem with DC is decent places to live will have the price tags to go with it. Living in Maryland is slightly cheaper, but if you want to work in DC, it will be best to live near a metro line, which also runs the prices up. I think DC is a great place to live though.
$ 500-$ 600 is either a scam or a really sketchy part of town. I’ve seen prices like that and it’s nowhere I would want to live. NW is the best area by far. In terms of living in Maryland, I would say go for Montgomery county. It’s pricier, but much nicer. You can use www.apartments.com to narrow down the location of where you would like to live and check out some apartments.
If you want a nice 2 bedroom, I say be prepared to pay somewhere around $ 1600, or $ 800 a person. Good luck with your search!!
