Rent Vs. Reality

I start by saying I love the Source Weekly-it brings some great things to light. Like the article a couple of weeks ago about homelessness in Deschutes County. I feel very lucky to have a job. I also feel very frustrated because I'm in the transition of moving from Redmond to Bend for said job. The prices of rentals in Bend and in general in Deschutes County are ridiculous. I understand landlords have mortgage/upkeep payments and want to make a profit, but really? For all the "for rent" signs in Bend there shouldn't be anybody that is homeless and those of us that are lucky enough to have a job shouldn't be charged an arm and a leg for rent - we all know things suck right now in regards to the economy - what if local landlords/rental companies did their part to help out by cutting us a break? Just a thought from a frustrated renter.
