  • Wedding: September 2015

We live in a 1 bedroom/1 bath English basement in DC. We have a separate entrance, patio and our own washer/dryer and we pay $1000 with utilities included. We are in a great area of the city, a five minute walk to the metro, restaurants, etc.  There are definietly days that I want us to move (ie, when th kid upstairs is practicing his trombone or when I just want some more natural light) but I know we have an amazing deal and it’s hard to give that up when we’re not ready to buy.

Downtown Canadian city, rent the main level and basement (two level apartment) of a heritage home that was converted into two units. Also comes with two parking spots. Pay additional utilities, but for about 1000 sq feet, the $1400 is pretty good. We got a great deal, seeing parking spots are $150 a month in this neighbourhood, often in addition.

We live about 15 minutes shy of Baltimore in basically a college town and pay $1250/month for about 1150 sq feet; 2 bd 1.5 bath. It’s …err….a “traditional” style or so they said. Lots of tile and you have to fight to get the things you want changed(ie: they said they put in BRAND NEW GROUT!! but it flaked almost instantly b/c they didn’t bother to handle the mold underneath of it before regrouting). But it’s not terrible per say. Besides the occasional ant problem we don’t see any animal or insect “guests”
