    I live in NYC so this is going to be WAY high.

    We have a 1br/1ba in an elevator building (no doorman). It’s about 800 sq foot. No outdoor space. But we have a dishwasher (no washer/dryer).

    Gas, electric, heat, and water are included.

    Our rent is going up next month to $3k/mo

    Maybe you should add a poll.

    We pay $603.50 (it’s weird, because we have a 15% discount since he’s in school). 

    We have a 2 bed, 2 bath, 1100 sq foot apartment. Utilities are not included. It’s not the nicest place (probably 40+ years old), but we don’t fear anything breaking or falling, or any health risks. 

    We live in Kansas City, MO. Rent usually runs anywhere from $500-$1100 a month, and it mostly depends on location and how new the building is.

    We pay $500 in central Indiana. Utilities are not included – but they are not much for our little place. We have a 2 bedroom/1 bath home with a fenced in backyard and heated 2 car garage (great in the winter!). We found our home on craigslist – it is a great place to check out if looking for an apartment/home to rent.


    Good luck in your search!

    I have a 1 bed 1.5 bath in NYC with a dishwasher, washer/dryer in the building approx 700 sq. feet, no doorman and I pay $2,050/month. I’ve been in the unit 6 years though so our rent has barely gone up in that time, I’m probably about $4-500 under market.

    @KatNYC2011:  I would probably pay a little more for a bigger space…Our bedroom is a great size for nyc but our kitchen is almost barely there!!!  But the thought of moving and looking for an apartment makes me ill..lol

    We live in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo/townhome type building (there are three people attached in each unit side by side).  It’s about 1100 square feet in Columbia, SC and we pay $730 a month, no utilities included although the front landscaping is.  We were in a 1 bedroom 1 bath 798 square foot townhome for $615 a month before but the area quickly turned shady so we decided we’d pay a bit more for a nicer location.  

    ETA:  We also have a nice little fenced in backyard/patio area which was another reason to pay more as well as a lot of attic space.

    We pay $1150 a month for our 3 BR/2 BA condo, but we also have a house that we cannot rent or sell right now so that adds another $700 a month for THAT mortgage. 🙁 So, altogether every month, we pay about $1800 between the two places. That does not include utilities or anything.
