I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on how to optimally get an apartment in DC and for how much. I'll keep it short to two main questions:
- Any recommendations on apartment buildings, townhouses, etc. and strategies on getting the best deals?
- What portion of a 1st-year analyst's gross salary should be put in rent in DC? (Base + bonus gross should conservatively be around 100k-110k)
I was hoping DC would be cheaper than NYC, but it's still making me want to bash my skull in. Currently trying to reach out to alumni/friends to see if there is rooming potential as well.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
