Looking for a new place

Well, my husband and I are looking for a new place. We're renting a three-bedroom two-floor apartment. We don't have a basement. We've been renting this place for about 4 years. A little more than that. It's been more like 4 1/2. This place was a good size for my husband and I and our two girls, who were 18 months and a newborn at the time. Well, now they are 6 and 4 1/2, and also have a son, who is almost 3. And this place is getting a little small for our liking. It wasn't the biggest place to begin with, but now my husband and I definitely do want a bigger place. Our kids are growing and we need something with a little more room.

We've seen one place, but aren't too sure if that's going to work out. It was only the first place, and there are a few more places we can potentially look at. Hopefully we can find something.

Do one or both of you have employment that can allow you to move to another location? For instance: once we considered moving to Kansas, which is considerably cheaper than where I live in Virginia. People everywhere need certain kinds of services, whereas there may be nothing for persons with the wrong sort of employment.

Hope you find something you like, that is not too expensive.

You have a lot to consider. Hopefully you will find a place that suits yours and your family's needs and is someplace that has lots of good weather for most of the year. In any case, it means you will have to take time to prepare and also take time adjusting to new surroundings. Good luck in any case.

My husband does have employment. We are looking for a new place in the same area. We don't want to move too far.

Thanks. We're hoping for the same. But it might be difficult.

I wish we could move somewhere with better weather, but that won't be happening. We're looking to move somewhere in the same area.

It hopefully will be a better place for you and hopefully be one that has a nice back yard.

That would definitely be nice. It's what we're hoping for.
