Since you’re just renting and it’s going to be short term. House A.

You might like your boss but envisioning pot luck dinners with his family? Ehhh…

Definitely A. While character in a house is great, practicalities like a shower upstairs and yard for the dog are more important.

A smaller (inside and out), more expensive, less comfortable house where you have to lean over so you don’t bonk your head on the ceiling in certain bedrooms? Versus a larger, more spacious, more affordable house that allows you to save up more for the house you’re eventually going to buy.

A seems the obvious choice to me. All that character shopping can go into the house you’re planning to be in for more than a year.

More expensive and having to lean over in rooms and put off buying your own house?! Who does that?

Option A no doubt. Not sure how option B is even a legitimate option when A wins on paper all day.

As your renting then house a for sure. Paying more for what honestly from your description doesn’t sound like a better house doesn’t make sense. Paying more when buying for a great house does. Would you rather save the extra money and put it towards a better house to buy or give someone else the extra money renting and run the risk of not having that little bit extra to buy that better house you were dreaming of.

House a. Also because it’s not in your boss’ neighborhood. You just never know. Plus the yard for your dogs, that’s huge.

A.  The yard for the dog was my biggest selling point, but you don’t really need a bigger front porch if you have a bigger backyard.  Plus you will be saving money and that can go towards purchasing a house in a year or so.  House character might win if you were buying, but for renting character isn’t worth the extra price.

House A for renting, the way you described house B to me is what you would want to buy. While living there sounds ideal, saving and buying there to me seems more logical. Means to an end. 🙂

House B!

Just kidding. House A, it’s a no-brainer.

I’ve lived in Seattle my whole life. What neighborhoods are these houses in? It makes a big difference. Traffic is crazy too. What are the commutes like?
