Work in DC Downtown. Like to drive as I am used to. but want to keep metro as an option as well (but not a must).

Looking for apartments in a safe neighborhood around rockville, potomac, north potomac and gaithersburg area that have good public elementary schools. I can take a list of good rated elementary schools in all the said cities. but finding an apartment is not that easy . $1250 is my budget, for 2 BR. can you please help. Thanks.

What are you looking for in a "good" apartment?

Have you already done any browsing of apartment prices in Potomac?

I went through the apartment hunt exercise couple of months ago. Finding an 2bd room apartment for 1250$ will be really tough. I had similar budget in mind and I could not find anything in a good area. I ended up renting 1bd room. Paying around 1350$ for that.

Check out these :
Crossings at washingtonian, (free shuttle to metro station)
Huntington at King Farm, (free shuttle to metro station)
Avalon Fields,
Avalon at decoverly. All these are in good safe area and I have heard that they are in good school district. I don't have kids yet but I am just saying from what I have heard.

@MD to MD :$1250 for a 2 bdrm...you will need to really look hard and be ready to jump the minute you see something. I just recently moved to the area so my search current- paying $1350 for a 1 bdrm/all utilities pd except cable-(Kevin- do we live in the same complex???haha) I have seen some "specials" for $1100 at Decoverly (very nice) ay Kentlands/Lakelands (not the same as Avalon at Decoverly) but I think they were 1 bedrooms.
My best luck has been with Craigslist, altho it is a pain.
I wouldnt recommend Crossings at Washingtonian for the next 1-2 yrs as there is MAJOR construction of a new housing complex right across the street from there. They have a lot of openings right now, for that reason I am sure-
you might consider adding Germantown to the mix

We were also considering a nice 1-bdrm w den at Beacon Place for $1650 (just water)

Best of luck!!! Keep posting- good info here- it can be hard to decipher this area so hang in there!

Try The Fields of Rockville or Park Terrace Apartments. The 1 bedrooms in both places are around 1k. 2 bedrooms might be close to your budget. But I think both places only include water in the rent. Very close to Rockville station though.

In 1992 my sis-in-law was paying $765 for a delux 1 bedroom in there with just water. And then I thought it was overpriced, mind u it was just nearing completion and everthing about it seem so flimsly back then. Oh, and across the street in Longdraft there was single family colonial for sale at the early $200.... Back then I was like they're crazy for asking that price... Seneca wasn't completed either..all there was lots of bush...lol...
