We currently rent a 1300sqft 3br,2ba house with a yard for $1,000. Apartments in this same area are about $800-$975 for similar size/slightly smaller, hit or miss if they include utilities or not. We got lucky with our house, though. Other houses for rent in the area are $1400-1700. Northeast Phoenix.

- Wedding: March 2016 - White Oak Plantation
I’m dying over these prices of rent!!
Fiance and I do not live together but each rent a 2 bedroom townhouse with a roommate. Both places are around 1300 sq ft and are $1000/month total.
(Baton Rouge – in the city)
Have you looked at buying a condo/townhome? We are planning to purchase right before the wedding and our mortage will come out to be the same price as what you pay in rent.
winterxrose: 1900 for 850 sq feet. AHHH!!!

brokeninnj: Yeah I couldn’t imagine paying what a lot of people pay. I can’t remember off hand how many sq ft. but it also comes with a garage and shed and we own a couple acres next door. My sister rented in Arizona and I laughed cuz she was paying $1600 for a one bedroom apartment with a little kitchen space and that’s it. I told her I’d rent out one of my extra rooms for less than half of that haha.

Hodgy527: We actually just moved into a bigger place, same landlord. Our OLD place was 3rd floor, 544sq ft. It was considered a 2 bedroom, but it was tiny. Like..tiny. We paid $725/month heat included. We paid the electric. The bathroom only had a standup shower, no tub. We had 1 closet in the entire apartment, and we had 2 crawlspace cubby holes that we kept the majority of our stuff.
Our NEW place is amazing, amost 3 times the size. About 1500 sq ft, 3 REAL bedrooms, plus a full kitchen, dining room, and living room (with french doors!), and a pantry! Its a first floor, with a front porch, and a back yard with a firepit. All hardwood floors. We pay $850/month, plus oil heat and electric. We have a closet in every bedroom, plus storage downstairs in the basement. Its been 80 degrees the last few days, and it has actually stayed pretty cool in the house! No AC’s or fans needed.

- Wedding: September 2014 - Dallas, TX
We live in Dallas in a nice walkable area and we pay $1130 for 750 sq ft. We actually have a steal. Our unit is one of the few non-upgraded ones in our building, and upgraded ones go for a minimum of $1300. Utilities cost around another $150. Texas air conditioning is expensive!

I live just outside of Baltimore (15 minutes, in the county) and $1500 for a studio sounds about right depending on where you’re looking. If you’re looking in Fed Hill, Fells Point, Canton, or close to the harbor (you said you looked next to the ballpark?) it’s going to be $$$. If you want to stay in the city but go a little further out, like Charles Village or Mt. Vernon, you should be able to find something less expensive. Good luck on your housing search!
ETA: We rent a 725 sq. ft 1 bedroom for $1150, with an additional $150 for utilities in Baltimore County.

Keep in mind I live in the boondocks and our apartment has its issues.
We pay $600 for our 500ish sf 1 BR/1 BA apartment. Our rent includes our water, sewer, trash pick up, hot water, and heat. Our electric is $35ish a month but we expect it to go up for the next few months as we turned on the AC window units. We pay about $50 for internet.
