If you are a renter..

Can I ask how much your monthly rent is? House or apartment? How many bedrooms? Answer anon if you like, I know this is a private matter but I was just awarded disability benefits and my monthly checks will only be $674. I pay $875 for a cute little two bedroom house that I am going to have to give up. I live in Washington state and am willing to move to wherever I can to live within my means.

  • I own a house now but 3 years ago my rent was $350 for a 3 bed 1 bath house that I thought was really nice, it was a great deal. Most rent around here is around $400-$450 for a 2 bedroom now. Arkansas

  • We rented until we bought this house. Our monthly rent was $675 (started out at $525 and we lived there less than 3 years) for a very small 3 bedroom 1 bath. We were also expected to fix anything that went wrong or to pay for someone to fix it ourselves. I know there are places here that are much less expensive for the size, but it was the only one available when we moved back to town. We live in northeast Oklahoma.
