  • That's about normal where I live, GA. I just looked online for houses for rent around here and 3 bedroom, 2 baths are going between $900 and $1100. We own a 2 bedroom, 2 bath and I'm about to leave for the Air Force next year, so we thought about renting it out for $800.

  • You can't really find houses or for that matter even apartments for rent where I live. But you can straight out buy a three bedroom house for under 70,000!

  • To rent a house like that here in Maine it would cost you any where from 1300 to 1600 nothing included. Even a tiny 3 bedroom apartment around here goes for 1200.

  • It really depends on where you're looking ... in Detroit, you can buy a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house for probably $50,000, or less!!

    In our city, the cost could be $1000, but I don't think it would include utilities. We live in a very nice city and our taxes are kind of high.

  • I had a two bedroom 1 bath apartment.. included water, electric, cable and appliances (fridge, stove, washer/dryer). It was a duplex, two parking spots, with barn for outdoor storage. Large yard. Nice kitchen (lots of cupboard space), dinning room, livingroom, basement (with washer/dryer in it), 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.

    We paid $425 a month for.

    another apartment I lived in. Country home, large yard, large parking area, barn for out door storage, 2 porches. Wash/dryer room. 1 bathroom. LARGE kitchen and living room. and 3 bedroom (was 2, but landlord knocked off a month of rent for us to build a wall through one of the bedrooms that was overly large, to make it a comfortable 3 bedroom, plus he paid for the supplies). Included water and cable. We paid $400 a month.

    another apartment I lived in was 1 bedroom 1 bath, in town. Everything included. $375 a month

    we live in western NY.

  • houses in my area are REALLY cheap. But the taxes..... yeah, that's where they get you in NY.

  • That's about what our houses around here are going for, if utilities are included. If you pay your own utilities, you can find them for around $600-$750.
