This is what happens when people can't get loans for a home. Everyone turns to renting. At least that's my theory. I was getting alerts every day about houses where the status was either getting updated because they had rented in less than 24 hours or their price was going up by hundreds of dollars a month, pricing them right out of our budget.
So we decided that unless there's a big promotion or something, our budget is better served by staying put, sort of.
I called a friend from around here who's home was empty. She was not sure she wanted to rent it, but made a sudden turn around. It's got 6 acres, room for Lily and a companion.
|Tall ceilings like our home, open living room too.|
|Right now, it's got water... Come on rain!|
The place needs a serious mowing since plants are about as high as my hip. We've got a friend with a tractor and we're hoping to borrow it to do some shredding.
The rent is affordable, she has no issue with our crazy number of animals.
It's a dream, at least for a year. Now I just need to get hubby home.
All in due time.
It's interesting, this place is very much in line with my dream and when I think of the gyrations it took to get here I'm amazed. Other issues have arisen (I may be up for a new job, or not, our work department is losing cohesion, Hubby loves his job and wishes he could find a way to stay).
But at least we have a place to land for a while.
We move in mid June.
