Rents All Over the Map in DC. At least from my experience in the past week or so searching. I have seen rent for 1 or 2 bedrooms as low as 600 all the way up to 3k a month. I don't know where to begin. What is everyone paying these days? Any data on avg. prices on different size rentals in different parts of DC?
Well, obviously, different neighborhoods can command varying price tags. A safer, more upscale neighborhood where you're likely to see a politician or two can go for thousands of dollars a month. A lower-income area with higher crime, conversely, is cheaper. You should meet with a real estate agent to discuss your price range, living preferences, and other requirements.

property values are also all over the map in DC. it depends on where you are looking. in Capitol Hill/Eastern Market it's hard to find a 2-bedroom under $3,000/month. A less desireable neighborhood, like Trinidad or Anacostia, might have 2-bedrooms for under $1,200/month. In general, in NW DC, $1500 will get you a studio; $2,000-$2800 will get you a one bedroom, $2,500+ will get you a 2-bedroom. as far as ceiling, there is none!
