Unlike NOVA, which has major job centers such as Tysons Corner and the Dulles Tech Corridor far out from DC, the MD suburbs' employers seem to cluster around closer-in areas such as Bethesda and Rockville. Combine that with Gaithersburg's location at the end of the (Red) line, and it makes sense that it would be relatively inexpensive.

As far as Metro parking over there goes, you may get more answers on the "Washington DC suburbs in Maryland" sub-forum over in MD.

Then why is the end of the Yellow Line (Huntington) so much more expensive than Gaithersburg?

If you're looking at the high-rises in the immediate vicinity, you may have a point. However, as you head further south on Route 1, apartment rents definitely decrease along with a level of positive perception. If you're talking houses, it depends. Homes east of Route 1 (and closer to the waterfront) will generally be more expensive than those due west.

Huntington is much closer to downtown DC than Gaithersburg. There are lots of jobs in Old Town or Crystal City area too, and it's not far from Belvoir or Andrews either.

Also, there are a lot more amenities in NoVA compared to Gaithersburg. Just went over there to do some shopping today, found nothing I went for, and am now ordering stuff on the web. Or planning to drive to VA. Some areas in Gaithersburg are also much nicer than others...they tend to be more on par with the Nova prices.
