Well things have happened fast round here. Mum went and saw a place yesterday, and the landlord rang last night and offered it to her. So we have a new place and are moving in 3 weeks.
The real estate market in our city has gone bonkers , both for buying and rentals. 10 years ago people would advertise their home for rent, you could turn up and if you were presentable you could pick or choose which place you would like.
Now places get listed on line, 80 people will show up and the landlord has their choice of who they want. Our cities paper said last week that this year there are 50% less listing service than last year. Of the 70 places listed only 2 would allow pets too.
Our new place has a garden for me to dig around in and sleep in and we are allowed to put a cat door in. It gets a lot more afternoon sun too.
