It looks like we may have found "the place", only 2 floors above us, and a flip of our current layout.
The benefit of this is we don't have to rent a moving truck. The problem with this place is the disgusting carpet that the current tenant has totally wreaked.
We haven't signed on the dotted line yet, we're still "negotiating", but we're really really really really hoping that they either replace the carpet, or install laminate.
I vote for laminate. For their sake it just makes more sense. Less maintenance, easier to clean, lasts longer, and they'll have VERY HAPPY tenants. Sure I prefer hardwood all the way, but it's not my place and I can live with laminate.
Cross your fingers for us.
