Well my fiance and I have been out looking for apartments, but thus far we havent been able to find anything that we like for less than $1500! This is for a damn two bed room place, nothing special.
It is so annoying not to be able to find anything which is affordable. To top it all off, we are being penalized because we dont have 6 months of work history. Both of us have JD's and are just starting to practice (the reason why we dont have the work history is because we were students).
I mean its just completely unreasonable out here. Back in Florida I had a 3bd/3ba townhouse and it ran me $850 a month. Really nice place in an expensive development. So to pay almost twice as much for half the place, just seems wrong.
On top of that we are trying to get my fiance a new car, but without knowing the final cost of the apartment, we cant get the new car. This is driving me nuts. There is so much deceptive advertising out there!
For example: 2bd/2ba, 1048 sqft. from $1240 - we go there and the cheapest apartment that they even have (not just available, but have) goes for $1485! I dont know about you but $245 difference in what the cheapest advertised price and the real price is deceptive advertising. I dont think that the little asterik that says price may increase doesnt cover a change from the day after the publication comes out.
This is just wrong.
