Im looking for a cheap, safe place for my new twin boys and DF.
Preferably NOT hot. I cant stand the heat. Were looking into putting a down payment on a house

  • We live in northern cali(stationed at beale afb) and we pay $950 a month just for rent-4 br 2 bth. I can rent the same thing in Texas where i'm from for less than 1/2 of what it costs to live here. I DO NOT recommend California at all. No matter where you are, things are outrageously expensive!

  • When it comes to California rent is way too expensive. I'm blessed though I live in a paid off house that my dad left me. It's a fixer upper but I am happy to not have the burden of rent or a mortgage on my plate.

  • We live in South Western Colorado and pay $550 a month for a 2 bdrm 1 bath duplex. And that is very reasonable. You are looking at $800-$1000 for a three bedroom, and most houses run around $150K for a small 3 bedroom.

  • I feel like our area (seacoast area of NH) is fairly expensive - we're in a 2BR 1BA apt and the rent is $865 - water and heat are included, we pay electric. It's not as bad as my sister's in NYC - she's in a tiny 1BR and they pay $1200 with no W&D and no dishwasher and they pay all utilities. My other sister is in WV and they are in a large 2BR for about $600/month. When we lived in WV we paid $500 for a 2BR house. The whole house. It rocked.
