Arlington, VA - apartment living for young adults

Jump to last reply

My soon-to-graduate DD has decided she wants to start her adult life adventures in the DC area - job or no job. I support her in this, having done something similar with Boston after college graduation.

She has a prospective roommate (who has a job lined up and it is convenient to Arlington), some money saved, and parents who realize that she will need some start-up money until she gets a job and settled. (and perhaps, first, last security rent, co-sign lease) That is fine with us. She will figure it out - and has had some sort of job since she was 15, so is willing to work hard at finding and keeping a job. She also would like to establish Virginia residency as she looks ahead to grad school in a few years.

What we already know - DC is expensive; it matters where in DC area one works as to what is most convenient housing; the economy is bad. We also know that this might not be the way others would go about launching themselves into the real world - but is the way she wants to do it.

She is handling most of this - not hovering too close here. Some clues on approx rents for 2 bedroom apts in Arlington area, specific areas to inclulde/avoid, other similar suggestions from those who live in the area would be appreciated.
