We're currently renting an apartment. Lease is due to end in January.
Just found out yesterday that our Landlord has sold up and the buyers want to live in the Apartment from October'ish. No, we're not homeless. We're going to move in with folks instead until the house is built.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the plus side, we are saving approximately $6,000 in rent and utilities that will go straight to furnishing the new house. We'll also have home cooked meals and my dad, being the cool guy he is, isn't charging us board.
On the downside... living with parents. i haven't done that for nearly 8 years. >.>
On the upside, that first period in your new home is going to feel amazing, liberating and pure freedom, so you have that to look forward to! Tough lack of alone time with your 'significant other' though - that would be seriously tough for me! GOOD LUCK!
