With the current economic down turn and   residential property crash, there has been a quick and strong shift in emphasis to affordable housing. Dubai residents have found that they too are not immune to the world’s economic problems, and have been affected just like other people all over the globe.http://www.bayut.com/rent.html

Just a question for those "renting" and not already owning a house forever,

how do you pay $2000 a month rent on a $3000 a month income?

Rents just seem so high in cities and force a person to have a roomate.

Anything around Market street in the heart of downtown San Francisco is ghetto.  Especially not safe if your a woman.  Save yourself and move to the East Bay and ride the BART train.  Just don't move to Oakland.

Just rented a very large 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo with state of the art appliances, just across the street from the Atlantic Ocean in Key West for $1900 month. 

In SD $2,000 pays for a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath about 1600 sq'   in the suburbs, not the best area, if you want downtown it will be more like $4,000 to $6,000 a month for the same.

In the cosmopolitan metropolis of Houston, TX, you can rent a fully FURNISHED, beautiful  3-story townhome in the most sought after area of Houston in River Oaks...within just minutes to Downtown, the famed TX Medical Center, the Galleria, & Greenway Plaza.  2-3 bedrooms (1 on the 3rd story loft can be used as an Office, Study, Den, or guest room), & 2 full bathrooms.  I just put this up for rent & saw the MSN story, so thought I would pass this great info. along.  If there is any interest, feel free to contact me at PS@reliantcommercial.com.  Thanks for the forum!

$2,000 - $2,200 in DC gets you a new 1 bedroom downtown (w/o parking of course).  $2,200 - $2,500 will get you a 2 bedroom west of Rock Creek park, possibly with utilities in the older buildings.  A house will run you over $3,000 in any of the decent areas.

Wow.  I could never see myself paying upwards of $2000/month in rent.  You may as well buy a home because your mortgage payments would be less than your rent.

I guess, rentals in Honolulu (HI) are among the most expensive ones since 2-bed/2 bath/2 parking stalls condo may cost you $3000 and up in a newer high-rise  in downtown area.

We are renting for $2600 in an older building and considered to be lucky!

Seattle, WA -  1,500 to 2,500 a month for a decent apartment in the city.  Out of the city, homes and apts are 1,000 to 1,500 for something decent.  If you not making a lot of money in a secure job or have huge family here, get out, there are much better places to live all over the country and the world.  Portland has the largest case of depression in the country, Seattle is not far behind, it's just that we have an economy here.  But, when you live in disfunctional traffic, live in clouds and pay a fortune, it's not worth it.

Seattle, WA: In the city, you can get a closet for about 1,200 a month.  Sharing is best.  I own two homes in the Seattle area.  One in Marysville, 30 miles north of Seattle, WA and one home 30 miles south of Seattle in the town of Orting.  The mortage on the Marysville home is 2,600.00 a month.  The Orting mortage is 1,400.  Frankly, the banks can have them both now, the stimulas packages are to late for many.  Big Forclosure run next, watch and see....

Hiyoung- I'm not too sure of how old/young your family is or what amenities would mean most to you and yours, but you may want to look in the city of Kirkland, and for $2000, downtown Kirkland would be a great bet for you!  I have seen many, MANY townhomes and condos for rent there, plus, up from the actual dwntwn Kirkland area are housing communities, that are NICE and family friendly.  This will put you very close to UW (right across the bridge, 10-15 min. give or take), without having to actually live next to the University (no offense to any who live there, but that area is declining).  Highschool-aged kid(s) will attend Lake Washington school dist.-- one of the absolute best in Wa.!  Take a look at Redmond/Kirkland/Bellevue area--the Eastside (which this trifecta denotes) is best for the price and area, good for families, low crime, good schools, parks and other amenities.  Good luck!

I am not sure what if we're talking about the same Boston South End, but that information DOES NOT seem accurrate.  It is one of the trendiest areas to live in Boston and is not cheap to live there.  One would be hard pressed to find an apartment that is close to Back Bay, with heat and hot water for only $2,000 for anything with more than 1 bedroom.  South End is actually a large area and it would take a while to get to the Back Bay if you are not in upper South End.
