  1. Here’s another idea… How about getting a really awesome roommate, and finding a place downtown that would afford you more space for yourself, as well as updating your living conditions?

    That’s what I should have done, instead of spending over $1500 a month to live alone. When I’ve got a good roommate, living with them is always a great time with good communication and respect for personal space.

    Just my two cents.

  2. My apartment’s actually really great, and if I could have pets, I’d evict my roommate and live alone. In fact, if I had known what my financial situation was going to be, I’d have not bothered with another roommate and just stayed there.

    But I really do want a dog, and crave my solitude – it’s not really about changing location as much as changing situation. And if I move closer to downtown when I do it, all the better.

  3. i heartily recommend the double-rent month method of moving. it saved my ASS to have both places so there was no extra pressure of end-of-month moving, etc.

  4. Little know fact to run through your noggin. Rent starts at the beginning of the first month and mortgages start at the end of the first month. So, when you get your house you also get a free month of rent (kinda). Doesn’t seem like you’re really in the buying mode at the moment – just thought i’d mention it though πŸ™‚

  5. ohhhhhhhh if only i a) had a down payment as large as the student loans that are making it hard for me to save one, and b) qualified to borrow enough to buy anything west of Chilliwack!
