Oh I would never compare to the city. Many small rentals are more than my mortgage.

You can rent a whole house in the Houston area for the cost of a closet size apartment in NYC.

Empty specifically stated that it was high for her are, not nationwide.  You can stop flapping your imaginary dick around; I'm sure apartments are more expensive in Holbrook than Austin.

Than who's?  As you are so eager to point out when the shoe is on the other foot, without quotes, no one can tell whom or what you are addressing.

1 bedroom ground level is now $850-1,000. My ds's religion teacher is looking for a new place. She now lives in a side apt of someone's home and is looking for something no more than $1,200. It is a small 2 bedroom. My gf rents a house, her rent is over $2,000 month.

OK, but that is still fairly cheap compared to the city and not so different from the price range Empty gave.

"A one bedroom apartment that most people would consdier as an living option would be $700-1000. Usually a bit lower in the burbs and higher in the city." --------- That is definitely on the high side.

Haven't looked lately but when I have, our same type of apt, 1 bedroom ground level is now $850-1,000. My ds's religion teacher is looking for a new place. She now lives in a side apt of someone's home and is looking for something no more than $1,200. It is a small 2 bedroom. My gf rents a house, her rent is over $2,000 month.

I'm thinking...my first apartment, two bedroom with a room mate was about $500/month. It was in a nice area, but a college town so rents were cheaper, ime.  My first apartment by myself was a studio and $300/month.  But those were 20+ years ago.  Listening to some of the parents talk with kids who are finished with their freshman+ years of college and are moving out of the dorms are talking about apartments that are $800-1000 month, but that would be split mulitple ways.  But again, a college area so rents are often cheaper, ime.
