Not the house we wanted but nothing in life is perfect. It's within our budget, it's within commuting distance, and it will do what we need.
We've been told that we have been accepted as the tenants. We still need to sign the lease. Fingers crossed!
The house that we wanted, or rather the house within our budget that was in the TOWN that we wanted, was just a hurdle too far. It required a substantial amount of work in order to be livable. We were willing to do that. But then we were told to go fill out an application online, and found out there was a rather large fee attached to said application, and the Ragin' Mrs threw up her hands and said "Nope, not doing it."
