Rent prices
« on: September 30, 2013, 02:19:27 pm »

What in the holy heck ever happened to affordable rentals. And I am sorry anything over $600 is not affordable to someone surviving on $710 SSI per month.  Trying to locate temporary housing for a family of 6 with pets, until the two males can get working, any suggestions?

Welcome to the Forum!

Honestly, I couldn't imagine how a family of 6 could live on just $710 anywhere in the US. Maybe try working 2 jobs where you live now and save up 3 months living expenses? I don't know how the job market is where you live. In places like Manchester, NH, if you have a car, it isn't hard to find 2 part-time jobs within a few weeks.

Whatever you do, good luck! I'll keep a look out.

Thats what we working on doing. Job market not the best down here In Arkanhell (Arkansas), most jobs for unskilled labor averages $7.25 to $7.75. My roommate is lucky if he gets 20 hours a week right now. We are keeping our heads up, and hoping for the best, and expecting to move around tax time, or school end.

Man you need to move out of there.  In my current job, which includes lots of travel , the travel pay is $12 and hour.  So basically, when I'm sitting in a car, or on an airplane, doing nothing in particular I make $12 an hour.  I consider that low too, especially with how rough all my travel is on my family.  Oh forgot to mention, I live in NH :)  $600 is about as good as you're going to find, at least in southern NH.  Although I have seen studio apartments in Nashua for $400 a month.
