- Not everyone can live on top of Eastern Market or Barracks Row, so remember that if you can walk to those areas in 15 minutes it's okay.
- If you are looking for a one bedroom at $900-$1000 a month with utilities included, it doesn't exist.
- Seek help from an agent at Long & Foster Capitol Hill office.
- Walk around the neighborhood, to get an idea of where you don't want to live.
- Don't exclude areas, just because they are in the NE part of Capitol Hill.
- If you need to have someone co-sign, let the agent know that up front.
- Ask the agent if they have a property they may be willing to rent.
- Ask the agent if they know of any other agents willing that have rental properties.
- Be prepared to put down the security deposit immediately to hold a place.
- Don't forget the early bird catches the worm. Be the first to contact the owner when the property comes on the market
