    Question Freakin' expensive

    Advertisements
    I can't get over how much apt's or houses/duplexes cost to rent in the area east of Seattle (like Marysville, Everett, Bothell)! At least $1250 for a 3 bed. In Vancouver, WA, it wouldn't cost that much!

    I would really hate to pay $1200+ for an apt, but w/ the cost of housing, it makes me wonder how much utilities are.

    For those that live in a 2 bed or more and have kids/husband and live in a house, how much are your utilities usually? I'm talking gas/heat/electricity.

    $1250 for a 3 bedroom seems about right to me.

    Seattle raped me for 5 years. I loved living there but it was so expensive to live in a decent place!

    We could live in northern or eastern part of Tacoma or around there, but that doesn't look too much cheaper either. Unless I want to live somewhere ghetto fabulous. I had seen the prices before we decided on the job, but it still surprises me. It's about the same here, but I guess I just expected it to be a bit cheaper since south western part of Wa was.

    $1250 for a 3 bedroom is about right these days.

    We live in a 3 bedroom apartment that is pretty large. I would say the highest our light bill has ever been is around $150 and that was in the dead of summer when the air was running non-stop. The lowest was round $70, but both of the guys were out to sea. Our water hoovers around $40 a month.

    Usually it's just the 3 of us, but we've also had a roomie for the past year and it didn't really affect much other than the water bill a little bit. And we run the dishwasher and washer and dryer a lot!!
