I did the math... with as often as I'm home, I could live in a hotel for less than I'm paying for rent... so this rent increase is causing me to look for something else... maybe. It's also causing me to realize that I've flushed $36,000 this year down the drain. So, we're considering a 3 step plan:
- See if we can convince them to not raise the rent. If so, take it.
- ...if not, look for something less and
- Begin investigating what it would take to buy a house in this "we'd love to sell it to you but the bank will only finance you with 100% down" market.
Well... at least I used to. :P
