FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: RENTALS

Q: I’M INTERESTED IN FINDING OUT MORE ABOUT YOUR RENTAL SERVICES!

A: If you haven’t done so already, you can fill out our Renter Profile. You can also check out our Rent page on our web site.


Q: YOUR SERVICE SOUNDS AWESOME! HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT? 

A: Email us at [email protected] with three days that you are available. Make sure that your preferred dates are 3-4 weeks out from your desired move-in dates.


Q: WHY DON’T YOU SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTS FURTHER OUT THAN A MONTH FROM MY DESIRED MOVE-IN DATE?

A: Due to DC tenant laws, leases convert to month to month at the end of the term. This means that landlords typically don’t know if a tenant is leaving until they are gone! Available properties are usually vacant, which means that landlords are looking for someone to move in quickly.


Q: WHAT ARE THE PRICE RANGES OF RENTALS IN DC?

A: Generally speaking studios start at $1,400+. 1 bedrooms start at $1,700+. 2 bedrooms start at $2,400+. 3+ bedrooms start at $3,700+. Parking will typically add an additional $150-250 per month to the rent.


Q: I HAVE A CAT/DOG, IS IT GOING TO BE HARD FINDING A PLACE?

A: While we here at City Chic Real Estate love animals, typically landlords don’t feel the same way. Having a pet typically eliminates 50% of your options, so you might need to be flexible on price range, neighborhood or unit features.
