i live in a 2-bd, 1+1/2 ba. The rent is not a problem. But, the utilities is: sewer cost about $48-54 a month, water cost about $20-24 a month, and garbage about $20-22 a month. There are only two of us who live in the townhouse we rent, yet i seem to be paying for the square footage (as it was conveyed by the manager) for the these utilities. The sewer bill is too high. i have never lived in an apartment complex that charged for sewer, though living near a creek. The owner contracts the utilities to a private service. The owner doesn't seem to be paying for much. Landscaping is nice.
