How Much Do you Pay for rent

And how nice of a place do you stay in? It seems like there are so many suckers that are willing to pay more than what the place is worth. 300 dollars a month with 2 other roommates is what I paid when I lived in the New England area, it ought to be alot cheaper out west. I should be paying 250 or less a month if I have roommates damnit!

    Seriously? The rent here in Southern California is fucking insane.

    Luckily we have been renting this house for 11 years now and the owner has never raised the rent on us, we pay $750 for a 3bdrm 2 bath house. Normally around here though it would be closer to $1200-1500 for the same house.

    Our portion of the rent is only $300 though.

    750 divided by 3 equals 250, and that is Southern California, this is Midwest fucking nowhere.

    I've had friends be able to split rent from 150-300/mo, depending on how nice the place is.
    Personally, I put up $200/mo, but I also live at home with my parents at the moment.
    That's going to end shortly, and it'll jump up to ~$600/mo.
    To be fair, that's for a 3br 2000sqft house that i'll be paying on myself.
    Higher pay and forclosed properties for the win, bitches.

    I don't pay anything for rent. I live in a van. I have a bed and a wife and a radio and an air conditioner. I use my Android or laptop for al media purposes as well as a Nintendo DSI XL. It is cheap living and I make good money. In a few years I could have enough to pay cash outright for a get nice house. I don't think i will be paying rent ever again in my life if all goes well.

    What the hell? Why do you Americans pay so little for rent? It must be a scale issue.

    Over here it's $250-$350 for a tiny shithole studio apartment PER WEEK.

    It's a density thing, from my understanding.
    Cramming more people in smaller areas means landlords can increase rent values with less resistance.
    The county I live in is a total of 340 square miles (~540sqkm) with a half million people total.
    Granted, there are some dense areas of the city I live in, but compare that to your own population density.
    With the exception of the US's major urban centers, and generally only in downtown hubs, people just aren't as packed in as other countries.

    Feel free to correct me on that, as it's just basic info i've skimmed over the past few years.

    What the fuck? How can you all be paying so little for rent? Before we bought a house, we rented a nice 1 bedroom apartment in a nice, low crime neighborhood for $750 a month, that included water & trash. You all would shit yourselves if you knew how much my mortgage is.

    I have not rented for years, last time it was £400 a month for a room in a 3 bed house, sharing with one other. Before that, £450 a month for a studio appartment in a gated community - had on site gym and sauna. Before that, houseshare in a 4 bed house - £180 a month rent, but most of the time I lived in the place on my own so was effectivly £180 a month for a 4 bed house as opposed to 4x £180.

    That's pretty cheap for golf course housing.

    I pay $160 a month with water and trash included for a nice 1 bedroom in the Bay Area. Electricity and gas are only about $20 a month.

    Hooray for subsidized living. You work hard so I don't have to.

    Yeah, wait until the money runs out and people like you have two options - the streets or the workhouse.

    You think I can't adapt? If there isn't enough money for even SSI there's going to be chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair.

    You are not a homeowner, your husband is. Why don't you stop leeching off of him? You haven't even had a job in years.

    You are not in possession of a sense of reality. If she is married they both own the house. That is who it works in the real world, you know, the one outside of your little hermit fantasy world.

    Thing is about ownership, it instills the true value of worth. Its a value that communities are built on. The chaos will have a first line impact upon those in reciept of benefits. Sure, you will act like a pack of wild dogs, maybe for a few weeks, maybe for a few months, but wild dogs always get the bullet.

    If you think you are some kind of mad max, keep on thinking.

    You can't adapt. You would be living on the streets again if it weren't for your SSI.

    You'd be bumming off friends and seducing guys for a place to stay if it weren't for your husband.

    Oh, I guess that if he died you'd be set for a while and if you got divorced I'm sure you'd try to take as much as you could from him because you have no honor.
