“Dear PoP,

After 4 years of paying for overpriced, run-down rentals, I think I’ve finally had it. I love living in DC and would like to continue living here, but paying 60% of my salary towards rent obviously isn’t a long term solution. I’m hoping that someone may have an idea of a neighborhood or part of town that I haven’t yet considered. Are there any affordable neighborhoods out there?”

Back in June we talked about rentals for $1000 or less. But in general, where do you guys think the most affordable but still pleasant places to live are? At a certain point does it just make more sense to live in a group house?
