Have you ever rented a house or a room? what's your demand and the cost for the renting? I ever rented a room which was one compartment of a big house. The house was equipped with washer, refrigerator, hot-water heater,and network. There was no air conditioner and kitchen utensil.So I bought an air conditioner and induction cooker by myself, which was placed in my rented room. Every month, I need pay 625 yuan to my landlady.If I rented a house, but not a room, maybe I need pay more money to the landlord. what's your experience of renting? what's your demand for the house or room, and the cost?

I have rented several apartments. My first apartment consisted of one room, a small kitchen and a bathroom. The apartment was quite small and it was in a bad neighbourhood. I didn't stay there for a long time. My second apartment was an apartment in Italy. I had my own room but I shared the living room, the kitchen and the bathroom with an Italian girl. I didn't have to bring my own furniture or kitchen utensils, everything was already there. The Italian girl became good friends and I was very happy to live there. The third apartment I rented was an apartment in the north of Denmark. I was a nursing student at that time and the apartment was close to the nursing school and it consisted of one room, a small corridor, a kitchen and a tiny bathroom. I had some problems with the landlord who tried to cheat me and the other tenants but aside from that I was happy to live there. The next two apartments were in a different town and I shared them with my ex-boyfriend. There was no refrigerator so we had to buy our own. The floors were extremly old and ugly so we also had to buy a carpet. When my ex-boyfriend and I broke up I got an apartment in the city where I was born. It was a private landlond and there were only 4 apartments in the house. The landlord was totally honest and reliable and there were never any problems with the deposit or other things. He is the best landlord I have ever had. The last place that I rented was a small house. My husband and I lived there together. It was in a village in the countryside and the surroundings were very peaceful, but I sometimes missed living in a larger town.

Usually they go by the cost for that area at the tinme. In college we rented rooms and houses with roomates. They were roughly the same cost maybe $50 off. It included everything as utilities go, was furnished in the main rooms but not in the bedrooms or the kitchens.
