Well, it is that time of year again. It is time for John and I to move. He has lived in 6 different houses in the last 5 years. I have lived in 5 different homes in the last 5 years. We are hoping this will be the last year for our annual moves (until we leave Galveston). We are looking to rent again, and we have the homes narrowed own to three. Here they are:This house is on the West end of the Island. It would come with a small dock and is located right on a water canal. It would have a nice view, but it is a little small. Also, it is about 25 minutes from UTMB, which would add up to alot of time and gas. It is at the lower end of the price range though. I imagine that this would be a favorite home for our potential guests. This house is bigger with 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. It has hardwood floors throughout and a nice big back yard. It is only 2 blocks from the beach. It has very tall ceilings, but it is at the upper end of our price range and the appliances and extras are not all that great.
Finally, a home that is close to UTMB. This is the house we are leaning towards renting. It is at the lower end of the price range and it is completely remodelled. It is close enough to UTMB that we could walk or bike every day. (This way we could drop our parking another $85 discount.) It is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, with 2 porches. This nice big porch on the front with an enclosed porch on the back. The appliances, floors, walls, kitchen, everything is new. The only down side it that it is a little smaller than we wanted to commit to for 6 years.
What do you think?
