    I'm about to rent a new apartment for 1600/m + utilities in Toronto. I consider that expensive but how about you, how much are you currently paying in your area?

    Did you say Toronto ? icon_eek.gif

    Its wayyyyyyyyyy too expansive. You REALLY should stay in Montreal. icon_biggrin.gif

    I live in Rosemont and I'm paying 1200 for a 11 1/2 dispatched on 2 floors. We're 5 in here, plus the dog, and we're not killing eachother yet.

    Considering it's a rent, I think you should consider buying a condo. You'll get the money back, in the end...

    Renting is for Suckers.

    my house payment is $900 per month. 2000 sq ft, circa 1882 side hall, double parlor victorian jewel, located in one of new orlean's Historic Home districts. ( a few pics on my profile page) icon_cool.gif

    my renters (sukers!), across the street from me, pay me $675 a month for less than half the square footage i live in. (and when their lease is up, the rent goes up!) icon_wink.gif

    Well there's at least one benefit of living in Cleveland - 3 level duplex for $965 + utilities. Split it among four of us and that's pretty good.

    1100 for a one bedroom, including water, heat, garbage, building services. Power is officially not part of the rent but I've been living here since March and have never seen a single bill with BC Hydro on it.

    I think it's kinda expensive cause it's pretty tiny (Vancouver shoebox size) but all my friends in LA pay a shitload more for way less.

    Based on what apartments around here cost it's not that expensive at all, even though it's still a lot of money. Oh, and the amazing view makes up for it all.

    Free rent when you're a sad fool that still lives at home icon_sad.gif It's awesome having more money to buy things that you want, but it's not worth sacrificing not having a life!

    My advice. Take this opportunity to save for a downpayment on your own home. It's one of the few times in life when you'll have the chance to sock away a big chuck of change.

    735 for a big one bedroom in Uptown/Andersonville area of Chicago... actually a pretty good deal for what it is (nice apt) but still REALLY sucks every month writing that check. icon_sad.gif

    I don't rent, but if I had to do it all over again I wouldn't have bought such a spacious house because it's a pain in the butt trying to clean up my messes. I think I'm gonna get myself a Zoila.

    Also, who wants to live smack in the city? yuck. Suburbia is cozier.

    £475 plus Utilities and Council Tax comes up to a total of £900 once you add everything up in Clarkston, Scotland (just outside Glasgow)

    City life is awesome, no need for a car, good restaurants open late (or in some cases all night), walking distance to everything you could ever need, all of you're friends are close by, and a vibrant and ever changing art scene.

    What more could one ask for?
