Renting in Palo Alto (coming form UK)
Original post made by sue Margetson on Jul 13, 2008
I currently live in England and will be moving to Palo ALto in November. I have read with interest many of the comments on renting etc.
I currently own a home in the UK and am looking to rent in Palo Alto (initially). The main reason we are renting and not buying is because we do not know the area and renting is a good way to figure out where everything is in relation to everything else. We are hoping to buy eventually.
Not all renters are bad! WE do not want to make a very costly mistake and buy a house when we know very little about the area and want to establish ourselves first. You cannot buy a home when you live thousands of miles away - you need to be in the town. Can I also say to all those who want to rent out there homes that your ads should be more specific and contain photographs. Its not just locals who are looking at them:-)
Looking forward to mpving into your community and hoping that it will be seen as an addition not a drain on your resources..
