If you thought your rent was expensive … you were right.

The District is the sixth most expensive rental market in the country, according to a study called “Paycheck to Paycheck: Wages and the Cost of Housing in America.”

The 2009 fair market rent in town was $1,494 a month (which, for comparison’s sake, is the same as Bethesda).

San Francisco, Honolulu, and Santa Cruz round out the top three.

When she’s not keeping up with the latest Major League Baseball news, she works on making music as an accomplished singer-songwriter and was even a featured performer/speaker at TEDxDupont Circle in 2012. Rachel has also contributed to The Washington Examiner and MASN Sports’ Nationals Buzz as a guest blogger. See why she loves DC. E-Mail: rachel@welovedc.com.
