This is Clay Cane. Florida Democrat Maxwell Alejandro Frost, the first Gen Zer to become a member of Congress, is having trouble renting an apartment in Washington, D.C. Frost, who is representing Central Florida’s 10th Congressional District, said on a Sunday morning news show that he still hasn’t gotten a lease since being elected in November.
The 25-year-old said, “I’m dealing with it right now, trying to get an apartment, trying to figure out where to live because I have bad credit. I’m probably just going to have to couch surf for a little bit.” D.C. ranks as a top metropolitan area for rent growth. While individuals under 25 make up a large portion of the DC housing market, applications from Gen Z individuals are up 92% over 2020, according to Rent Cafe.
