Apartment hunting - Insider info

I've spent the last two months checking out different apartment sites and spending A LOT of time on Craigslist looking for just the right place. I've got a couple to go look at but thought I would toss this out there to see if anyone has some apartment leads for me.

I'm looking for the following, though I'm am slightly flexible.

1) 2 bedroom, 1 bath
2) Located on Cap Hill, First Hill, Eastlake, Belltown or Downtown.
3) Washer/Dryer in-unit
4) ~$1000/month

My roommate and I have no car, no pets, and really don't need much more in apartment then what is listed. Anything more is just fluffy clouds and sparkles.

So if you happen to be living in a similar situation and there is an opening, let me know and I'll check it out.

also: I checked the memories, clicked on all the links on how to find housing in Seattle, but those websites don't really show the good deals you can only get from word of mouth.

(edit)
I've lived on First Hill in the last 3 years with exactly the same type apartment for $1000. I've also lived in a 2bd/2bth with W/D for $1300 on first hill in the last year. This is seattle/livejournal so I expect the snarky comments, but seriously - are you really all bending over backwards to pay face value on your apartments? I'm willing to haggle with the apartment management. That's why I said ~$1000. Give or take $100-200.
