there IS A LOT OF FRUSTRATION when looking for an apartment -- and there are times I look at a place and wonder what might make the homeowner think the apartment is worth that much . Honestly mortgages are not that bad these days and landlords can get a better quality of renter by cutting the rent back a bit - and being more gracious to pet owners - I mean if you are willing to rent to a family with children who are harder to manage than a cat or dog than what is the issue?

We just want to rent or sell them get paid and move on. We don't want to spend months on a rental or house and never get paid for our work. ... more

Until my kids can afford to get their own place it's my responsibly as a parent to subsidize their lifestyle. I have three of them and two still live with me even though they are both college grads. As Judge Judy says if you cant afford kids don't have them and expect me to subsidize their lifestyle. Keep your kids home until they can afford to be on their own. ... more

For some reason it shows the town as Brooklyn Heights, which if that were true would be a lot more expensive.
