Our top moving tips when moving to Washington, DC

Washington DC is a city full of history and culture. Aside from major landmarks like the Lincoln Memorial, highlights such as free museums and the National Cherry Spring Blossom Festival help attract millions of international visitors each year.

While it has thousands of government employees residing in its neighbourhoods, the District also has a robust private sector and a diverse population.

Other factors to consider when moving to the nation’s capital include:

  • Local economy. DC is the 6th largest metropolitan economy in the country. The top 4 sectors are professional services, government, tourism and education and health. 25% of workers are employed by the Federal Government and as all 3 branches of the government are based in DC, it attracts law firms, lobbying firms, industry groups, trade unions and not for profit organizations. Education employers include the National Defense University, Georgetown University and George Washington University. Diplomacy is also a strong sector with almost 200 embassies employing about 10,000 people while international organisations such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund have bases there.
  • Cost of Living. At 17% above the national average, living costs are not as high as Manhattan, but Washington DC is not a budget destination. The median rent for a studio apartment is $1300 but they easily climb above $2000 in high demand neighbourhoods. House prices are steadily climbing, food costs are above the national average and the tax system is also complex including high parking taxes and estate tax which some neighbouring states do not have. They also have state taxes in DC, but that debate is one for another time.
  • Population Growth. Washington DC is less than a quarter of the size of NYC in land mass and it has a population of 706,000 people, which has grown each year since 2006. That’s despite a high rate of regeneration and renewal in the capital’s population as governments change and some residents move on to other cities.
  • Transportation. DC has some of the longest commutes in the country with more than a third of people travelling more than 45 minutes to get to work each day. The capital’s reputation for traffic congestion is well established, so if you intend to use a car or ride share service for commuting, give yourself a wide berth with timing. About 30% of residents use the Metro or bus system, but it’s worth noting fares are based on the time of day and distance travelled, not the flat rate New Yorkers are used to. The people happiest with their commutes are cyclists and walkers in this pedestrian friendly city.
  • Culture & History. Whether you want to explore your new home town or use it for a springboard for a getaway to hiking in West Virginia or the beach in Delaware you have an abundance of options. History is all around you in DC, from President Lincoln’s Cottage to Old Town Alexandria. It’s hard to go past events at the Kennedy Centre and free museums like the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and National Gallery of Art. DC’s growing bar scene is lively in neighborhoods like U Street while legendary music venues like the 9:30 Club are still going strong.
