There is very little inventory right now. It should pick up as the spring comes, but I think a lot of people are holding on to their < 3% mortgages right now until prices or rates come down before they list, so it will probably stay very low inventory.

That is BS. You aren't living there, you are visiting. You don't need to pay any rent. And $100 for a phone bill is excessive. A phone plan can easily cost $30-$50/mo, and if you finance a new phone then you'd have a $30-$40/mo bill on top of that for 2 years only. You should just get your own phone plan and instead visit your parents for a day, don't spend the night.

Yes, in a way. I have never paid retail rates for internet in the last 10 years. When my promo period expires, I always call up and ask to be put on the current promotional rate for my internet plan. I look this up ahead of time as a new customer to check offerings. So far I've been able to get the price reduced every time my promo expired. I'm paying $80/mo for their 1200Mbps plan. I'll mention it's too expensive and I'm looking at alternatives, and they then offer me the current promo pricing.
