Second house we did I walked into the bathroom and my foot broke through the floor..... That house took a hell of a lot of work, but we only paid like $12,500 and now it's a great house. I'd live there and I'm spoiled and have really high standards.
Wtf its $1500 for a one bed no gargar apartment! Here

We've got 8 houses and several empty lots here and there. 6 on one street. 3 are directly next to each other, and directly across the street two more right next to the other.

1500 bucks would make for a pretty big house payment here. Paying that for 20 yrs down here = $360,000 makes for a really nice house here. But up in Calgary, Canada my parents live in a $2.5mil house that they are renting that would probably go for $500,000 here.

Crazy how the economy changes from place to place.

What you guys are talking about...is one of the huge reasons i moved from Massachusetts to Wisconsin. Like labaladeplata said, I'm used to seeing $1000-1500 for a 1 bedroom apt. Shit, the mortgage in my 1k sq ft townhouse that i lost in a short sale because i was upside down in, was $2k a month!

I have always been interested in real estate investment/income. Thanks for sharing everyone. It reminds me that I need to get off my butt and get moving on my dream.

On another note, I also hate the high rental prices where I live. 1 bed apartments with no garage usually go between 1k-1.2k/mo if they have running water. Even a 16x20 cabin with loft and no running water will go for 750/mo.

Unfortunately, a mortgage is out of reach for most, as our median home price is about $236k. A conventional 30 year fixed at today's rates make that a $1500-1600/mo payment (PITI). Once you add utilities (about $1k/mo) it is an unattainable goal for many.

$1500/month for 30 yrs = $540,000
What kind of rates are you talking about? Seems like it would be much cheaper than $1500/month if you're buying a $300,000 house...

Taxes... Insurance... and in most cases PMI since 20% down is hard for most to obtain when renting costs as much as buying. Just ran a generic mortgage calculator to include PMI, Insurance, and taxes. Right around $1500/mo give or take $20...
