Rents are ridiculous in my area....Northern CA.....and I have found a great location, nice looking place and so close to the school...but the rent is quite high for my income.
How to I decide? It's the closest one I've seen that fits our needs. And there seems to be nothing available. The lesser ones really are cheap feeling.
Kind of sucks! My children have known no other home so I'm struggling with moving as it is.
Update.....I went with a two bedroom in the original complex I was talking about. Not the $1675 unit but one for $1540 which includes a storage unit. My teen will hopefully contribute $200 at the least and that makes it doable for now. If after a year we find it's too much we can look again. I feel like it's worth it to be somewhere comfortable and safe while we get used to this new life of apartment living. The advice was very helpful! I did look at the one bedroom and although it was quite big the one bathroom was throwing us a bit as we are used to having our separate spaces.
My house went up Fri and we already have a cash offer. So it won't be long now and we can finally move on. The boys are ready to start over even though it's sad to have to leave our home.
