We've been looking for a place to rent and have looked at a lot of houses recently. It amazes me how even $100 more in rent can make a huge difference in the quality of house. We've seriously seen some real dives, and then for $125 more, seen a really nice house.
Our stumbling block at this point is finding a place that will take pets, dogs in particular, so the search continues...
Today on a local website I came across this dandy of an ad for a house to rent and it made me chuckle. It sounds more like a desperate plea for permanent tenants:
"Private, clean house on 3/4 acre. Big deck with trees all around. This would be a great place for a couple with one or two children or just the two of you who would love this place and live here for a long time and make it your home."
I guess listing the important details like how many bedrooms and bathrooms didn't occur to them!
