How much is rent where YOU live? (not mommy related) Update

 DH and I are looking at a house to rent right now. 3 bedroom 2 bath, security system, fenced in back yard, huge front yard, two large storae buildings and two car garage in a safe and well established community near the school that our oldest DD will be attending this August.

They're asking $750 which isn't a bad price for a house this size, but it is a bit older house. So we're trying to negotiate between $650-700 range.

 

Anyways, based on that description how much would you expect rent to be in your area?

Update: So we walked the house today. The house is dated, but they will allow us to make changes and paint. Its dark paneling throughout the house which is the ONLY thing I don't like. And they're going to lower the price to $700 a month. So we are going to pay our deposit and sign our lease this week. Yay! Finally moving our family to a bigger house. :)

We also have rental properties. We have a variety and they range anywhere from $395 to $1200.

A lot more than that. I'm in KY and my friend pays 1000$/month for a 3 bedroom 2 bath teeny house. A small back yard, almost no front yard, no storage and no garage.
