Apartments at Hartwell Village in Seneca.

Raine Riley has been renting in Pendleton the last seven years.

Through Riley’s college years at Clemson University, she lived in a 600 square foot apartment. When she married her high school sweetheart on their spring break, they were in for a surprise just days after the wedding.

A pandemic flipped around their plans of living and put them in her small apartment for four months.

By July 2020, they found a 1,250 sq. ft. 3-bedroom house they could rent after an intense interviewing process including outlining their budgeting plans with the landlords.

Two years into marriage and now graduated, they are ready for a home to call their own. A home where monthly mortgage costs would be the same as their monthly rent of $1,350.
