Last weekend, the owner of the house called Matt to let them know that the closing was in two weeks and they would need to be out! TWO WEEKS?? The guys started scrambling to try to find a place for three guys and a dog and couldn't find anything. There was nothing in the paper at all except one that required first and last month plus a deposit. That would have been over $6000 and that was not in their budget.
This is Matt's current house. It is about 1200 square feet, falling apart and sold for 1.7 MILLION dollars. It will be torn down so the people can build a new house on the property.
The guys also really wanted to stay in town if they could. Matt rarely drives his car anywhere. He always walks or rides his bike. The thought of having to drive everywhere was not appealing to him and his "green" heart.
All three of them started looking for places to store their stuff and friend's couches to crash on until they found a place.
Well, lo and behold they found a house through someone Matt knows. It's nicer than the one they are renting now. It has three bedrooms and TWO bathrooms and a loft. There is no lease, no big deposit, in town, closer to the school and they can move in September 1st and it's even cheaper than what they pay now! That is worth a big CHEE HOO for sure.
Matt said it needs a good cleaning, but he is thrilled. He was living in the basement at his current place....and believe me...it was a true basement in every sense of the word! He is so happy to have a bedroom!
Now mom can quit worrying about her little boy.
