What's the area? I became curious after reading some if these posts and seeing how much people have to pay in cities not 50 miles from me. I live in a small city in Ga. Our 3 bd 1 ba was 700, slightly on the city limit. It would have been about 850 in the central part. We are downsizing to a cheaper apartment so we can save more to buy a house. It's a 2bd 1ba about 1300sqft for 500 with water included. A friend out of state says she pays 1250 a month for the same thing. You can get a nice 4bd with a fence for that here.
