I'm getting increasingly frustrated because we had to move out of our hometown because apartment prices were ridiculous! 1800 for a fricken 1 bedroom??? I'm sorry but I think anything that could be a mortgage payment for an apartment is BAD VALUE. We're going to now have to move because our rent increased by $150 a month, and all I see online are prices for Community style apartments which are the very ones that are the most ruthless when it comes to living costs. I live in the Bay Area and at this point we need to stay within the area at least until after the wedding, but I finally found a job that will become permanent after a certain amount of time, but it still pays less than what the current housing market demands. Maybe this is more of a rant, but I feel like I'm in a hole. I worked too hard went through all this education and the reward? Work harder and sacrifice everything else just to afford a safe place to live. By any chance are there any 2 bedroom 4plex apartments in the Pleasonton/Livermore area under 1500 a month?
