Elliot and I just spent a few days looking at possible housing. After discussing things, Dem and I have narrowed the field to three options. For anyone reading, let us know your thoughts.
Option #1: This is a small floor duplex five minutes from Dem's building at the university. Two bedrooms with a den/small room. Gorgeous neighborhood. Small, old kitchen.
Option #2: This is a top-floor condo 15 minutes from the university. 3 bedroom 2 bath. 1500 square feet. Near shopping, but close to a relatively busy street. Nice views of the mountains.
Option #3: This is a house in about 15 to 17 minutes from the university. About 1400-1500 square feet. Two car garage. Small kitchen. No dining room. Nice, quiet neighborhood. Cheapest of the three options, by about $200.
