How much is your rent/mortgage. I know this is a personal question, but I hope everyone would be open minded and answer it. I am doing research on the cost of one's living expenses around the world, and rent/mortgage is the main query. I received a survey over the phone yesterday, about the way the economy was doing, and the questions were very interesting. I would like to know how much is your rent/mortgage, and what does it include, and your location. I will start with myself. I rent a 4 room apartment, living room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, bathroom for $955.00 per month, which includes gas. I pay for my electricity and I live in New Jersey.

Thank you for your response. That seems pretty reasonable, here in the US, I believe that would be about $825.00, Really nice size apartment. I've always lived in a one bedroom apartment. When I was growing up we had 3 bedrooms and 2 rooms that were never used, because there was no heat in them. Again, thank you for your response.

The rent is so low because it's a bad neigbourhood i live in. In the good neighbourhoods the rent is from 650 till 1300 euros per month LOL.

Okay, then for a not too good neighborhood that price is rather costly. Isn't it terrible how we have to accept substandard because of price? Stay safe.

In the city im in (somewhere in finland), the rents for a 2bedroom apartment range from maybe 460euros to anywhere like 1200euros or something. It's really expensive here. (1 euro is about 1.5 USD). My apartment just has shower, toilet, kitchen, balcony.

Thank you for your response. WoW, I figured that 1200 euros would equal $1800.00 American dollars. That is expensive. The struggle most people have is paying their rent, which is usually the most costly expense people have. And with the rising economy it is very difficult to keep up. You have a great day and thanks again for posting.
