Just thought I'd let you guys know the results of our apartment hunt... I had been calling places all week to set up appointments for Sunday through Tuesday. By the time we landed on Saturday night, all but two of the apartments had been rented out. We saw one of those two and it was totally gross and unlivable. The second one was great, but it turned out that another leasing agent had already rented it out during the time we were touring it(!!). We signed up for that building's waiting list, but in the meantime decided to check out Domus, and ended up really liking it. It's a little pricey, but considering the money we'll save on Septa passes and a dog walker by being so close to school, it works out.
I thought LA had a crazy rental market, but it's nothing like Philadelphia's! It's crazy how quickly everything is snapped up.
Oh, and m1, we'll be on the 4th floor. You?
