How is rent determined?
The first is 1% of the price of your home. So, if you paid $120,000 for your home, your rent should be about $1,200 per month.
The second would be based on the finished square feet of the home. You can figure it at about $1 per square foot. Say you have a home that has 1800 sq ft of finished space, your rent should be about $1800
These are not hard and fast rules, but they are a good general guideline.
