A quick look at the Marquis website says one bedrooms go from 793-855.

Two bedrooms do go from 1100-1200 though.

That's the scam bcad has been using for years. Once every 10 years or so the raise the rate. The rest of the time they jack the appraisals which essentially is a tax increase, just camouflaged by a formality.

There are many variables as to what a website says about monthly fees.

What I do know is my friend lives on a third floor, one bedroom, pays for a garage and is being charged the fees I mentioned earlier.

Perhaps the 743 to 824 are in a noisy areas by swimming pools , or by units by families with children; I don't know. What I do know are the facts I mentioned earlier about her specific rent in the one bedroom unit with a garage...

The garage, pet rent, renting washer/dryer can add up. It's silly for anyone to assume that a price on rent.com is the right rent price, though. I also know someone who moved from there recently.

This is especially true. Prices on the site, especially for upscale apartments, never show you the fees you'll have to pay in addition to rent. Once tacked on, you can be looking at $100-$150 more than what's listed on the site. The "tack-ons" at my current complex are over $100/mo. in addition to my rent.

Look above.

Rent.com was not my source. Pretty silly huh?

Well my point is still valid. Websites can be left and not updated for a long time period too.

I guess it is all about demand and supply. I cant find a 2 bed for less than $1300/month not including utilities in a desirable school area. Some complexes wont even return my inquiry calls or emails! It seems one has to go further out of the city to get more options...

The city is growing so fast and home or apartment construction must not be keeping up.

Last year alone the city added over 6,000 apartment units.
