We still have to finalize things, but we are applying to rent this adorable little condo in our current neighborhood – it’s even in a beautiful courtyard building! The owner’s fiance is actually one of the Psych professors at my school, which is so random.
It’s a little out of what we wanted to pay, but there are free washers and dryers, and we can get permit parking instead of paying for garage parking. It’s so worth it to us!

Thanks everyone! We’re so relieved to have found it because everywhere else felt like we’d be settling big-time, either in regards to neighborhood or unit. This place is small (probably 600 sq feet or so) but I love the layout and the feel of it, so it’s worth it!
The one problem now is that since we’ve lived with another couple for the past two years, there are some kitchen/living essentials that we don’t have, like a toaster, etc, and our dinnerware, etc, are all hand me downs that are now cracking. Plus our couch won’t fit in the living room, so we’ll have to find a used one, which means we’ll be really broke for awhile!

Holy cow, it’s gorgeous!! And when you said it was small and then said it’s 600 sq ft, I almost died. I would love 600 sq ft. FI and I are way too used to being trapped in my 150 sq ft dorm room. Congrats on the great find! I am so jealous.

@veganglam – haha, well it might be 550 or so, I’m bad at guessing! But it seems absolutely perfect to us since we have 4 people in a 700 sq foot 2 bedroom right now. Which is huge compared to the 4 people we had in the 600 sq foot apartment last year!
Honestly, I think we just got really lucky. I can’t even tell you how many sh*tholes we walked through before this one. Because it’s one woman renting out her condo, she was much more reasonable than the management companies.
I’m glad you got your housing situation figured out! Did that other one definitely fall through, then?
