Very democratic influence clear in comparison with L.A. cost of living. Austins got alot of californians. They saved their money for years out there and can get more for their money here; only maybe not so much anymore since the frame of mind came down here with them. Who cares about the cost of a cappucino? Thats not texan. Thats just pansy. Get a coffee, not a caffienated milk. Jeez.
#Anonymous on Feb 01, 2012 :
Your"Rent Per Month"is not based on square footage. So say for example if you live in an 800 sq.ft. apt and want the same size in Tokyo you'll be paying A LOT more. Or you'd get 250 sq.ft.in Tokyo for the same price. That makes the "one bedroom" rule completely unfair.
