Fellow City-Data.com forummers, what are the average rental prices for apartments, homes and townhouses in your city? Also, do you consider them too high for the type of city it is (e.g.: a city that's not that great or is unwhelming)? Please chime-in.

In the Astoria section of Queens (NYC), a studio for around $1000, a 2 bedroom for around $2000 on average.

On Long Island it's about the same. After we sold our house, we rented a house temporarily since I was graduating college and my mom was going to move with my dad (who had to move for a job). It was a 2 family house, 3 bedroom for $2500 I think.

Prices in Long Beach are about the same as Queens then,except some studios can be cheaper (700+)
But on average I say closer but cheaper overall. I think for some neighborhoods the rent is too high but overall it's worth it for the location and the easiest place in LA to get around.

$2000-$2500 for a 5br luxury house in gated community on the ICWW
$1800 for a 3br on the beach
$600-$800 for a 2br near the college
$450-600 for a 1br or a studio in the sprawl

you pay a huge premium to live by yourself, imo.

I would say the averages are
900-1100/mo for a 1 bedroom apt.
1200-1500/mo for a 2 bedroom apt.
1600+/mo for a 3 bdrm apt
(That's considered pretty cheap for this area of NJ)

I pay 1300 for a 2 bedroom but it's including utilities... Only one more month of the rent lifestyle

The grittier sections of NJ (Newark, Irvington, and East Orange)
700-900/mo for a 1 bedroom
900-1100/mo for a 2 bedroom
1200+/3 bedroom

I just moved into a large single story 1 bedroom apartment in Nicholasville KY (population 30,000; 10 miles south of Lexington) for $490 a month. It includes a washer and dry hookup in a huge utility room and a large patio in the front.
