You can get a 2BR apartment for $500-600/mo. A 2BR house would be $600-800/mo depending on location.

i cosign fsu's estimates. also, bvijaycom, you may want to add if you are coming by yourself or with children or spouse/significant other. i see you said conservative estimate which to me implies you want the basics for everything. the only thing i would add is health insurance (if your job doesn't provide it) and property insurance other than car. jacksonville seems to have a theft and vandal problem. entertainment here is fairly reasonable and downright cheap if you look for deals.
