With rents on the rise in several of America’s largest cities, it’s always helpful to know what your money can get you.

The sad truth, however, is that it’ll go a lot farther in some cities than others. A one-bedroom apartment in New York City, for instance, goes for about $2,000 more than the same-sized apartment in Dallas.

With the help of real estate marketplace Zumper and its December national rent report, we’ve compiled a sampling of one-bedroom listings in the 20 most expensive markets in the US.

Each listing is within $100 of the respective city’s median rental price.
