We are renting 'til we find what we'd like to buy. This weekend we found the near perfect rental. 270 degree water view with a small lawn at the very end of a quiet street within walking distance of the center of town.
Only an 8 month lease. I can't justify a move for eight months.
The other really attractive rental would have been perfect if we were in college. I could walk my kayak from the house to the sound. But it won't do for a family. too bad. We'll keep looking.
BTW, we can stay were we are for as long as we like. Just want to find a place that meets more of our criteria than the current place.
