After relocating to Arlington, VA, Alex moved into a two-bedroom apartment with two old college buddies. Now a year later, this 24 year-old can no longer take the mess and stress that comes with sharing the tiny pad. So he's looking for a place in the greater D.C. area with a room he can rent for a little extra income. His mom Lynelle is helping with the hunt. But while she's pushing for a more established neighborhood, Alex is open to stretching his budget in one of D.C.'s up and coming areas. Can he walk the fine line between being a frugal buyer, and finding a place nice enough to entice a renter?
