We are so excited that we have a contract on our house. We're scheduled to close on August 14th. Problem is, they have not broken ground on our new house. So we started to look for temporary housing. It's almost impossible to find a place that is willing to rent for less than 6 months. I finally turned to Craig's List and found three possibilities. After visiting all three, none were perfect. But we knew we had to bite the bullet and make a decision, so we decided to move to the Legacy Apartments.
A couple living there just bought a new house but have a lease that goes until November 24th. They are desparate to get out of their lease, so they offered to pay part of the rent each month. Good deal for us, good deal for them. We went to the office today and signed the lease. It's a 2 bedroom apartment, even smaller than our current house, but it's clean and in a nice area. We'll also rent a garage to store our washer/dryer/freezer/bikes, etc. Right outside our building is a playground, and it's a short walk to the community pool. We plan to move in beginning August 10th (just so happens that's the same day Chris got called for jury duty, but that's another story...) We're going to have to move twice, but I keep telling myself two moves is better than two mortgages! We'll also be moved in before school starts, which is a big plus.
