Renting a house vent :/ AbbieChrysler3312 32 kids; Ohio 1041 posts

Currently my husband and I live in a two bedroom two bathroom apartment, its nice but they are trying to raise the rent to over $800 a month which imo is insane for a small town (the biggest restaurant we have within ten minutes here is mcdonalds.)
We are looking at houses to rent...we found two similar in size but one is 75 more a month but they allow pets there, I don't know if I could handle getting rid of my dog.. the other house is more updated has a fenced in yard and is less expensive it also comes with all appliances and has a second bathroom. ughh... I just wish the more expensive house had appliances and had more updates.. we have the option of getting either house but I don't know which one I would rather rent. SOoooo irritating!

I wish I could find an apartment that cheap. I live in the absolute cheapest 2 bedroom that I could find on short notice and I hate it here, since you get what you pay for. I pay $965 a month now and when we move we're looking at paying at least $1100-$1200 for what we want.

Quoting MommyToWesley:" I'd take that! We're looking to buy a house now, because it is literally more expensive to rent than buy here. A 2 bed/2 bath apt is close to $1000/month. No utilities included."


weve been looking to move and its just not gonna happen. our place is nice but not big... and yes i can find cheaper but they are either ugly or in a crappy neighborhood. with what im looking for itll be above 900. were going to have to just stay esp. when cameron starts school because i dont want to have to switch schools when hes young... and theres quite a few schoosl in our town and it depends on where you live which one he goes to

I've never paid less than 800 for rent... I need to move to small town! Lol.. I know there are houses in the absolute worst part of my city that go for 650/750 a month plus utilities, but they're usually rented out by pimps for prostitutes, so not a good place to raise a family lol

We literally live in redneck central in ohio but I'm glad our rent isn't a ton of money, no utilities are included with ours either...I just know that I would rather rent a house if I am going to pay the same amount of money in rent for an apartment. Its just hard to find all the things we want in a house in a decent price range and one that allows pets.
