Scratching my head on the total utility cost of a 929 sq. foot apartment. In the summer months when the bills are the highest it's closer to $230 a month. 2 adults conservatively using water and A/C in an 820 square foot apartment.

Something to consider: you have no reference for Renting Apartments (with 2 bedrooms)Per Month. That would be a nice addition.
