Where do you live at $375/month? Apartment?, House?, 1-bed, 2-bed, share or "other"? As I stated on my original post when I first got to Pueblo I had a whole house at $200/month. Of course, it was in sorry shape with the sewage line backing up into the house and overflowing into the yard all the time . And when I moved out the owner wouldn't refund the damage deposit by saying it was clean before I moved in. Well, of course when nobody lives there, it stays clean

But still, the location was great for me. Just on the other side of I-25 from downtown so...being the walker that I am, it wasn't difficult to walk to the riverwalk, Mineral Palace park, the YMCA, etc

I live in a duplex by the state hospital. I also had sewage problems but the owner and rental company (Rental Solutions) were good to me and fixed it right away. They also had me fill out a ten page form noting all the damages in the house ensuring I'll get my deposit back.

That's good of them. My landlord was an independent person who was just trying to make extra money.

Actually, he was a real estate agent and probably just couldn't sell this house.

I was told that some of the plumbing problems were due to the age of the construction and the sewage lines being of metal. They rust and corrode away leaving great big holes and allowing for tree roots to grow into them (which was the cause of the back-up)
