  1. When I was hunting for a new place in my price range(thank lesbian jesus I ended up moving into a friends house), I genuinly saw alot worse than that in my local area. No fire stains around the stove (that is also still there, and stained too)! No highly visible dark mould/mildew! It’s practically a bargain.

  2. This is pretty much the same series of events that unfolded when my girlfriend and I moved in together, except we could ALMOST afford the fancy building if we committed to living in a studio apartment. Now that we’ve actually moved all of our clothing and books and shoes and cat toys and coffee cups into one living space it’s clear that getting the fancy but tiny place would have been a terrible mistake. But still, every time we walk by the building we get worked up about the dream apartment all over again

  3. OMG, this is so true on so many levels. Rents for that sweet downtown loft are almost as traumatic. And just wait until they start going through all the ads where you have to have a Westside Rentals login to look at them…

  4. First off if you want a nice place that is cheap, look in the places people associate with crappy places to live. Not dangerous just rundown and poor sections of the city. From there take a journey thru the place until you find that one place that gives you a nice view of something that still has cheap rent. My girlfriend and I have nice place on a major river. Sure there is a port nearby but its a nice view. Not to mention the neighbors are great. When we tell people where we live they look down on us. Then when they come over for a bbq or a sunday brunch by the river the change their minds.
