You might also consider having a roommate or two. That can cut down your costs substantially.
Hope that helps.
As Lanre stated before it will depend on if you're looking to rent or buy. I myself used to live in Rockville and depending on if you want to rent or buy, the prices for rent can be the same however for buying the prices can be somewhat different.
