I currently pay $730 a month for our 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1060 sqft apartment. This does not include the $50 extra a month I pay to have my 5lb Chinese Crested, $13 a month that is a REQUIRED fee for TRASH SERVICE, $5 a month for a required maint fee (even if I dont need maintenance that month), and my water/sewer bill is generally about $50 a month. All in all, I generally pay $815 a month total.
I got my lease renewal information today.. LOOK AT THE PRICES!! JESUS!!!!!!!!! This is ONLY rent. Not any other fees you're required to pay.. AND if I want "covered parking" I'll pay an extra $50 a month, or if I wanna go ALL OUT and get a garage- I'll pay an extra $95!!
God forbid if I want to only sign our lease for 3 months so that my son can finish second grade without having to move in the middle of 2nd semester!
I CAN BUY A HOUSE FOR THIS KIND OF MONTHLHY RENT!
