Last night Allison left a message in response to a new ad that had just appeared in yesterday's paper. The add offered a house for rent, but not a lot of details. Just before 9pm, the lady called back, described the home, and provided us with an address to drive by. At the time, we happened to be out at the store, and not far from the address, so we stopped to check it out.
We were impressed enough with the outside to call back this morning and setup a viewing. Other than fairly small bedrooms, we're quite impressed with the house, and have already filled out an application and faxed it back to the owner. The landlord owns a local construction company, and as such claims to take a lot of pride in her rental properties. In speaking with her, she sounded like a very reasonable lady, and even had no qualms with renting to pet owners. At this point, we're back to the waiting game, but it definitely sounds promising.
Wish us luck!
