Daydreaming, Part 2

Finding the perfect place to live in San Francisco is a challenge. For the time being, we're taking a break. Demand for rentals always exceeds supply and right now is no different. It's not as bad as the mid-1990s when you'd camp out overnight at an open house, credit reports, deposit checks in hand, but it's close.

Our search has been a roller coaster ride of emotions. We'd found three places and submitted applications at three places. With the last place (pictured here), we'd thought we'd gotten it. We even went as far as transferring funds so that we could get a cashier's check cut for the deposit as well as first and last month's rent. Then we received news that someone else also applied and they were being considered as well.

And with that we decided that we're in no hurry to move and withdrew our application. Right now we're pretty spoiled, our landlord is responsive when there's a problem, doesn't play games, and follows all of the housing ordinances (we're in a rent controlled building that's well maintained - most units have recently renovated bathrooms and kitchens as well as double-pane windows). I'm confident that when the time is right, we'll find the right place with the right landlord.

In the meantime, we're going through all of the boxes that haven't gotten unpacked from our last move (and my previous moves). Our hallway is beginning to look a lot less cluttered as the boxes disappear. Also, it'll be nice when the office is no longer a storage closet. I'll show you our home in the next couple of weeks after we've finished all the unpacking/sorting. I'm pretty excited to have a clutter free space.

Have you had moving adventures?
Or did your dream home just fall in your lap?

Bon Apetit!
