The hunt is on for the perfect rental in Palmerston North, NZ!
I am looking at 3 houses today, and one on Monday. Yesterday I went to two other houses. Exhausting!
The perfect house for us will be:
*In the zone for Ben's school
*fenced in backyard
This sounds like it shouldn't be too hard, but Ben's school zone is only 15 blocks wide in the SE corner of Palmerston North. That means I have a very small area of the town to look in- about 1/8th the size of downtown Plymouth, MA for my MA friends who get that reference.
Houses also look homely from the outside, so it is hard not to judge a book by its cover. The nice homes are called "executive posh estates" . We don't have the funds for one of those fancy 300square meter places.
