i was reading the answers from a question last night asking how much people pay for there rent or mortgage and what state they live in. i knew it was cheaper other places, because i lived in FL for a couple of yrs and had a 1 bdrm for 750.. but i couldnt believe how cheap some places are! i saw one person said they are paying 425 a month for a 2 bdrm 1 1/2 bthrm in utah! i pay 1350 plus utilities for a 1 bdrm in new york. so im just wondering if it evens out by how much you make. minimum wage here is $7.15 an hour. i dont work right now, but my SO makes almost $12 an hr working overnight stock at a supermarket hes been at for two years.
That was me that said that. And they just raised our rent this month- it was $400 before that. Anyway minimum wage here is $7.25. My husband is a youth counselor and I'd rather not say how much he makes- but it sure the heck covers our rent :)

I am retired and have a flat fixed income. I added it up per month, multiplied by 12, then divided it by 2080. 2,080 is the number of hours per year, 52 weeks at 40 hours per week. My income came in at $21.50 per hour. What I pay each month for my home is $284. That is homeowners insurance, flood insurance and property taxes. I had a really nice home when I was married and the mortgage payment was just over $1200 per month.
