We own a 3/2 house with ~1200 sq ft in Louisville, Kentucky. We pay 800/month. We love it for now (it is our starter home that we have updated/renovated), but it needs a basement if we were to stay for many years to come. So we'll probably start looking again next summer for something a little bit bigger with more storage space/bigger yard.

We live in a small city in eastern Wisconsin. We have a 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment that's about 1,000 sq feet. We pay $600 a month. It's fine for now, but I really hope we have a house in a couple years.

We are in a Suburb just outside of Chicago..literally walking distance. We live in my father in law's old home and just pay the mortgage. Its a small 900sq ft, 2bd 1 bath and we pay $950.00. Which I think is way too much. I can't wait to move.

I miss Va Beach but I don't miss the rent! I spent 3 years living at the Mayflower on Atlantic & 34th- 2BD 1BA, $1400/mo ($1100 w mil discount) for barely 800 sq ft. The only reason I wanted to live there was bc utilities were included (even electric) and we were literally right on the beach and I knew we weren't staying in the area long term. I would totally move back though, I loved it down there.

Cost of living here in NE Ohio is low. Its actually cheaper to buy than to rent. Until this past May we rented a 4bdrm 2ba house (that needed a lot of work, constantly) with a big yard in a nice suburb for $650/mo which was a great deal. Utilities were very high though, especially gas/heat because the house was not well insulated. My landlord was a jerk tho, furnace went out and he refused to replace it all winter- I had to buy elec heaters for every room in the house! So we needed to move, wanted to stay in this suburb but the deal on the house we planned to buy fell through so we just got an apt here in the meantime- 2bd 1ba, 1000 sq ft, 900/mo including water, pet rent, and washer dryer in suit. Utilities are very low here so we are paying less than we were before even with more expensive rent, and we have maintenance 24/7. Its expensive for this area and quarters are tight, but its just temporary.

3bdrm/2bath with about 10 acres and a barn for 400/mo. I also lease the 25 acre pasture as well for an extra 80/mo. I live just north of Wichita, KS

My rent is pretty low but I do a lot of work on the property to make up for it

Holy crap! That's less than my taxes alone!!!

There was a 10 acre property I was drooling over (though not drooling over the house) that was all set up for horses......it was going for over $1M....definitely out of our price range.

I'm looking to buy soon. Without some crazy awesome house you can pick up a decent old house with 15 acres for 125k here
