Space vs. Location in D.C.
As renters and movers know, location and spacing are two of the most important aspects when searching for a new apartment home. With a fixed budget in mind, sometimes being able to afford both space and location is a hard find. But luckily, Padfinders can help make that search easier!
With space being at the top of a renter’s priority list, more affordable apartments typically are further from the center city and in smaller communities/areas. One option when D.C. renters are looking for more space for their budget is:
