Too long ago to remember but I think Queen Victoria was on the throne at the time.
I'm on board with reubles. My first rent was $80, split between 2. The house was like a hangout for a villain from the "Batman" tv series. The floor sagged in every room at a different angle. We made it nearly a year.
A little house in a rural village that I painted inside and out, rent was $40 a month, lived there about 2 years.
It was a little old home built during the Depression by a country doctor. There were several newlywed couples that rented it out until they bought a home. Had a garden spot and a place for chickens, and we put a wood stove in it to save on propane.
We had a terrible windy spring the 2nd year I lived there and a bit dry, I would find old Mercury head dimes, mill coins, and bits of purple glass around the yard and garage that got uncovered. Would have been neat to used a metal detector around that house. There were about a dozen houses and 2 churches in the village, the old country store was closed & torn down before I moved there, another built a mile up the road. Interesting types of people too, made it feel like a village.
$80 a month, and i didn't feel ripped off, a friend of mine moved for a year, and only asked that i cover his electric bill for rent, it was a small house in desperate need of major repair... it really helped me out though since my mom kicked me out because "it was time" which was complete bs, my older brother lived with my parents until he was 26, and my youngest is now 24 and still lives with my parents, i got the boot at 19 and received no help from them whatsoever...
I must be older than all of you. First apartment in CA was a studio, furnished (even dishes and cooking stuff), all utilities for $80.
Ain''t that the truth. In my area of CA you could pick up a nice house for $12 or 13 grand.
1976. Newly wed kids(21&23). 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom. $311.00/mth. Paid $34,000.00 & 1 year later sold it for $64,000.00! & we were on our way!
A million dollars was a LOT of money back then. My husband has always had a knack for real estate. If it were up to me, I would stay in one place forever. Back then I didn't see the opportunity before me, but I am so grateful he did because it so improved our financial status. He now does what he loves. He is a Realtor & shares his knowledge with his clients.
