Check out the new 2018 map of median rent prices for a one-bedroom apartment in different Washington, D.C., neighborhoods!
Any District residents can tell you that the cost of rent in Washington, D.C., is crazy. In fact, Washington, D.C., is the fifth most expensive rental market in the nation. Lucky us!
Zumper, the apartment search website, recently found the median cost of a one-bedroom apartment in each neighborhood.
Zumper notes on the overall trend of D.C. apartments, “Notably, on a year-over-year basis, one bedroom rent is up over 10 percent.”

Rent prices in some areas have changed since Zumper tracked the prices last year. The website says, “While Catholic University – Brookland and Ledroit Park had the fastest growing prices this quarter, up 8% and 6%, respectively, Brentwood and Au-tenleytown took the biggest rent dips, both down over 11%.”
This year, the priciest areas to live in are Dupont Circle, Downtown, Kalorama, and Georgetown, while the least expensive neighborhoods are Deanwood and Anacostia.
If you want a nice, mid-range-priced apartment, check out Chevy Case, Woodley Park, and Ledroit Park, all of which have a median price of under $1,800.
