I interrupt the regularly scheduled Ten on Tuesday post to talk about an exciting development in my life!
I've alluded to my pending a move a couple of times, but now that the applications have been processed and the leases have been signed - I feel safe formally sharing my news! I will be moving on July 1st!!
It all came together so effortlessly; it's kind of amazing to me. 2 weeks ago, I was in my condo's office picking up a package. I casually mentioned that I would be renting out my condo at some point and the office manager told me that she had a great tenant who had lived in the development previously and was looking for a 1 bedroom unit to rent. This woman is quite possibly the most finnicky person I have ever met so if she was endorsing someone, I figured he was a viable tenant.
had originally planned on using a rental management company, mostly becuase I didn't want to deal with the hassle of finding a tenant. But with this glowing recommendation, I thought - maybe I CAN do this myself.
So I switched geers and started talking to friends who are landlords. They were able to walk me through the rental application/lease process and provide me with copies of the documents I'd need. Phew. It's nice to have friends that know what the heck they are doing and could answer my long list of questions...
So in the span of the week, I met the potential tenant (who loved my place - which shocks me), searched for condos downtown, and found the new place I will call home.
This is where I'll be moving on July 1st!
