Newlyweds looking for 700 or more square feet Eatern Market

I keep finding these gorgeous places in our price range and they don't seem too far from Capital Hill East Market (where my fiance is working). Can anyone recommend these neighborhoods and areas? Or should we stay away?

There's a reason they are so cheap: they are in the ghetto! With a few exceptions, the parts of DC east of the Anacostia River are quite poor and dangerous. Some of the highest crime rates in the entire country there.

If you post the exact listing number we can tell you more. What is your price range? Also, take a little time to look at listings in various neighborhoods and get a sense of the realistic price. Anything that seems too good to be true is.

Would you consider Clarendon (in Arlington)? It's uber convenient to all areas of downtown by the metro and the area is just phenomenal. The Courtland Park apartments will probably fit your needs in terms of budget and space...

1600 is out of our price range, but if we get a short term lease that is an option.

Would you recommend looking for places by zip code or any other areas of DC close to Eastern Market?

I think realistically you should either up your budget, or drop your square footage requirement. Are you looking walking distance to your fiance's place of work, or metro commuting distance? You might be able to find a studio or maybe even a one bedroom around Navy Yard metro - but it's up and coming area.

You should also check out the sublets/temporary options on Craigslist - lots of people renting out their places for the summer.

Are you looking for a full-time apartment to move into? This isn't really the site for that. There are lots of guides online for those moving to DC.
