I was so pumped back when I finally found a rental that I could afford after weeks of scouring the market with no luck.
- It’s bad when your budget is within that range where most of the examples you find are poorly diagnosed or downright hovels.
I literally never ever want to guess that I’m putting down another person’s current home or lifestyle choices, even though I wanted to live somewhere at least one third clean. With my limited budget for rent, this proved to be a much harder job than I ever thought possible. Even when I found something promising, it was typically within a couple of minutes of walking in for a tour when I would realize the site too much like mold or a musty basement. So multiple of the properties in my budget were either poorly made or rampant with water damage from leaking sinks or ceilings. It took twice as long as I had planned, even though I finally found a rental property that I could afford in addition to which I was feeling somewhat comfortable in addition to safe. It’s a duplex where the car port is shared, but the more than one units have their own more than threewalls. As great as this is for privacy in addition to noise, it’s not as superb for heating and cooling performance as I would have expected. The walls are poorly insulated in addition to the cool conditioned air leaks out while I was in the boiling summer time weather with pure ease. Although I was glad to not hear my neighbor’s through my study room wall, I wasn’t glad with my barely affordable electricity bill each week. Until I get a better task and my budget for rent increases, I will have to make do with properties to care about the one that I’m renting now.
