Charlie and I are in desperate need of a house to rent (we absolutely cannot buy a house). If you follow me on twitter, you may know some of this already...
The first house we looked at was adorable, and the mean woman gave it away to someone else (I mentioned that before).
Then we looked at a bunch of dumps... like holes in the walls, in the floors, dirty dirty dirty.
Then we found a house that was for sale by owner and she said she would rent it and we really liked it.... A little out of our price range but wonderful. She has yet to send us the application to rent it and that was a week ago.
Then we looked at some more dumps. And some tiny places. And I found a house I liked that was out of our price range.
Then today, we looked at a house (Charlie practically harassed the guy to let us see it first). We jumped on it, and he said he had to show all the other people that were lined up too and we would know Monday if he would rent it to us.
This afternoon we found a house online that we haven't seen, but it is two doors down from the house I loved that was out of our price range. It looks adorable, but is more than the house that we saw this morning (but also seems to be cuter and has a deck). So now we are trying to go see that house tomorrow before we find out Monday about the other house.
My criteria isn't super crazy- clean, a kitchen bigger than the shoebox I cook in now, adequate storage, a fenced in backyard, not in a scary neighborhood. Would like 3 bedrooms (need an office). Would like our furniture to fit.
I hate house hunting. For real. It would be so much easier if we were buying. I'm just ready to get somewhere. Has anyone else had crazy problems with finding a place to live? The stress is killing me!!
