  • Our 2 bedroom condo in Souteastern WI was about 90k and we pay about $600 a month for mortgage, condo fees, and our taxes and insurance are included in the mortgage. I would suggest it to anybody just starting out.

  • It's different everywhere. When we were in FL 750 would have gotten us a decent sized 2 bedroom in a "classy" apt complex with a pool, gym, community center, etc etc.
    Here in PA, some apts are that much for a 2 bdrm, but most of them are very small, and the nice ones are MUCH more, $950 and up. We did just recently find a house that had been split into two apartments, the one bedroom was downstairs and the 2bedroom was the front door, the entire second and third floors, and that was a GREAT find! So it really just depends on your area. Try checking craigslist and the local paper for homes for rent by owner, which are usually cheaper, or go through a locater service, where you can find GREAT deals, but you have to pay for the listings.

  • Ours is a 2bed 1bath apartment for $500 a month. We're on a year lease. If we weren't so poor right now I'd convince my fiance to buy a house next year.

  • I think you've got a great deal. Here we pay a little over $3,000 for 3bdr/2ba. That's average for this part of town. If you want to live in a crappy part of town you might get down to $1,800 for a 3bdr/2ba. 1bdr/1ba apartments here go for over $1,000/month.
