Now I don't think these expectations are super high either and to show you here is a list of my 3 prerequisites:
- 5 bedrooms (I know people are going to want to come visit for extended periods of time... we need the space!)
- yard with fence (I want to be able to plant things and have a swing set... or something like it)
- up to date on mortgage or at least be not in foreclosure (Come on, we just had 70-80% of homes foreclosed on in my area and I am going to guess that about 90% of those were rentals... I have seen people sign a lease and then a WEEK later be told by the bank that they have to move out! This is MANDATORY because I am not going to let it happen to ME!)
Anyway... end rant.
