I remember a couple of years back, we were looking for a house to rent. No, we don't want those impressive condos for sale, but just wanted a simple house with a lawn. We thought that a lawn will be good for them. As homeschooled kids, they spend most of their time at home and it's good for us to have at least a big lawn where they can play or do other outdoor activities. We searched far and low for houses for rent with a lawn until we saw one. But the price was too high for us. It was two times the present rent that we're paying! Oh, did I mention we have the cheapest rent in town? ;) But still the same, we thought the house was not so worth it, though the lawn is big and nice but the house is quite old and run down.
And just a few days ago, we found another place for rent. It's a beautiful house in a quite subdivision, but this time it's far from the city center and not accessible to public transport at all. So we decided to just stay in this house and make most of what we have. :)
