    Not counting a college dorm, what was the first place you called home after you moved out on your own:headscratch: I don't remember the sq ft but mine was an efficiency apartment, and I paid 90 bucks a month plus utility's.:supergrin:

    First place I called my home was a 3 bedroom condo in the DC suburbs. I paid $50,000 for it.

    Rented a 450 sq foot studio attic apartment in a private house for $400 a month. Couldn't believe I stayed there for 7 years.

    After the Dorm in college it was a one room Studio Apartment in an old building built in the 1920s. It was a cool old place. It had steam heat and parque floors in the bathroom. It was $150 a month and I paid an extra $15 a month for an indoor parking stall.

    After high school I rented a run down apartment for $200 or $250 a month, don't remember exactly, that was 22 years ago!

    But my first HOME was 900 sq/ft, three bedroom (tiny bedrooms!) place that I had paid $39,000 cash for. I lived on nothing and saved every dime I could and bought what I could afford at the time. Then I got married and doubled my net worth! :rofl: Kept saving money and traded up a couple times to where we are now.

    I shared a townhouse in "Hickory Hood" with two other girls. It was about 1100 sq ft, 3br, 2 and 1/2 bath. My share was about $250 a month. No way in hell I'd live there now. Too dangerous...bad part of town.

    I had a Studio Apartment in Bakersfield, California Ming Tree Apartments, I was going to College at Cal State Bakersfield..........I liked it, it was small, it was my own place I lived by myself.

    The only gripe I have is that the floor plan was set up so the Bed is backed up to a wall the neigbors the bedroom, of the apartment next door and they had their bed up against the wall. Lets just say the walls were thin, and you could hear them in the evening :supergrin:

    A little two bedroom house my Grandpa sold me. Ended up hating that place, pipes froze every winter, electrical was dangerously old, back room sunk at least a foot, and the furnace couldn't get the temp above 60 in the winter. But we created a lot of memories in that little sh**hole.
