Shortly after posting yesterday, I received a text message from my former landlady that she had just gotten off of the phone with the guy who’s renting his house out. She gave me a good reference. I paid my rent on time, every time for 2 years and I left it clean and no damage. Shortly after, I received an email from the new landlord asking if I was still interested in signing the lease.
Yes, indeed I am.
I have sort of been looking for a bungalow since moving to Calgary. I don’t mind stairs, but it is nice not having to navigate a large number of them. I also don’t like carpets – carpeting and dogs don’t mix well, especially when one of the dogs is a Yellow Lab and she sheds as her primary profession. This new place has all 1950’s era hardwood and it is in great condition. It has 3 bedrooms, galley style kitchen and a great mud/laundry room with custom cabinets on all of the walls for a massive amount of storage. One bathroom, all one person needs and a giant fenced in yard. All in all, it will be a perfect fit for myself and the dogs.
I move in sometime this month, not sure of the exact date as yet. Looking forward to getting there, the moving part of it is a bit of a pain but that’s only a day. Wish me luck.
