Ewww that sucks! I hope you guys can find something soon! Maybe you can look a little further out than you have been, and get some luck there?

@Amaryllis:I understand 100% where you are coming from! We live in a apartment & its in town (a small town, but in town.) Its the cheapest one we could find. Its a very older apartment but kept up. Or we would have passed. Either way we have TWO colleges within 10 minutes of us. So the rent has been jacked up really high in the last few years! We could be paying for a house with our rent money, very true. But we want to build our credit up first & then buy. Hoping within the next two years! How much longer of a wait are you two looking at?

EDIT: Also due to the colleges hardly ANY apartments was available when we started looking. Also it was VERY hard to find anyone who would allow pets!

@Amaryllis: That’s amazing!!!!!!!! See hubby & I don’t have bad credit. We just don’t have enough credit to get a big enough loan without a co signer & that’s something we don’t want to have to do or ask for. We also don’t have credit cards. We only use debit. So we are going to get small things, like from different stores & do monthy payments to help build it up. I would LOVE to find something for rent to own! I think that’s a great idea! Would make you guys extra money later on down the road to rent it out! So exciting– Crossing fingers for the new job for your hubby! 🙂

It sounds like you live in the same area I live, haha. The university is building new housing for students, but rent is sky high in town…even in the maintained apt. complexes. We have a house now, but during our renting days it was crazy. Our rent was almost the same as our mortgage is now, and we only had a 1 bedroom apt then, a 4 bedroom house now! It’s NUTS!
