For folks coming to PTO in June and still in search of housing:
 
I am currently occupying a 1 BDRM basement efficiency near the PTO (1.5 miles) in Old Town (a great area!).  Address is 523 N. Columbus St., Alexandria, VA. Rent is $695.  7 blocks from Braddock Rd. Metro Station.  Own kitchen, bathroom.  Large walk-in closet.  Free laundry, free parking.  Nice backyard with gas grill.  I've been biking to work every day for the past year from here, love the location and am sad to give it up.  Apartment available June 1, (or possibly 5/29).  Shoot me an email [djcody at gmail dot com] if you are interested in more details.

While we are on the subject of apartments, I will need a three-bedroom with two full bathrooms.  My start date at the USPTO will be May 30.  The highest rent I can pay will be $1575, more if utilities or washer/dryer are included.  I would prefer a location near a train/bus line that goes straight to the USPTO.  I am willing to ride the VRE as far as Bristow.  Would anyone like me to take over their lease?  I will get to Virginia on May 24.

I wish you luck, but that is a tall order. My suggestion is to scan craigslist regularly, check out rental websites (rent.com, etc), and find out realtors in the area who manage properties and see what they have to say.
 
You might find that if you can get those kind of prices you'll have to commute for 60+ minutes and/or live in a very bad area.

I will be working at the patent office starting in June 2006.  I am looking for a place to live, and have found a place near the intersection of I-495 and I-66.  I was curious how long of a drive it will be to get to work every morning, and home in the evenings.  It is only 10 miles, but does that equal 1 hour if I leave the house at 7-7:30?

It could, especially if you live out 66 towards Dulles. I know people that live out that way and come in every morning at 5am to avoid the traffic. Think flex.
