    If I remember correctly, Integra is from Portguese/from Portugal.
    It is expensive to live on your own in either of the coasts, unless you have a pretty decent job. Which is why I like living in Chicago... 95% of what NYC offers at half the price.

    It is very expensive to live out here where I am. I have a $150,000 mortgage that amounts to just over $1250 per month because of the necessary flood and home-owner's insurance and taxes. My electric bill tops right at $300.00 per month in summer months, and my heating bill hit just over $2500 last year (fuel oil). Gas is up around $3.85 per gallon, with diesel nearing $4.00 per gallon. Things will get much easier once I get all of our debt paid off!

    Nidex remembers correctly, my parents hail from Portugal. Small villages(literally a village) in a mountain 5 kilometers from the boarder of Spain.

    Is it sad that I'm jealous of your low mortgage and gas prices? Fucking California...

    The city I moved to recently (Rochester, NY) has a crazy low cost of living. I live in a 1 bedroom apartment and it would have cost 200-300/mo more in Richmond for the same amount of space.

    Probably because of the crazy amounts of snow they get here but whatever.

    You aren't understanding what I'm talking about. The mortgage is ~$750 per month in itself, with an additional $500 per month in extra shit (homeowner's insurance, flood insurance, and property taxes). It's all of the extra crap they require that makes the cost of my house high. Also, I agree that everyone has utility bills. But, I am trying to convey just how expensive utilities are where I'm at. I'm not claiming it's impossible, but it's definitely not easy by any stretch of the imagination.

    1250$ for a beach front house with insurances is still crazy cheap, not sure if that's normal for the area but even in Florida or other Gulf Coast states I don't think you're likely to find something in that range near the water.

    I looked at a 1300 sqft house on the beach and the bills would have been almost exactly like bigwill said.

    Where? Also, 1300 is small for a house if it's going to be more than just you and your SO, IMO.

    It was in Milford CT. I agree 1300 sqft isn't that big but a finished basement helps.

    Is Milford Connecticut ghetto? Still seems crazy cheap for the Eastern seaboard. And do they not include finished basements in square foot totals out there? Pretty sure for tax reasons they have to out here, thus a lot of "unfinished" basements exist.
