So, we just found out that we're going to be losing our apartment at the end of September; the land-people want the basement back for personal use. I suspect that they've got to a point where they don't need the rent to cover their mortgage payments any more.

This means that we'll need to get ourselves a new place. We're going to try a rental agency instead of searching manually; anecdotal experience seems to indicate that it's the right way to go.

We've been talking about moving for a while now; we've kind of outgrown this place, and since we're both working, we can probably afford something a bit bigger. With two bedrooms, so we can have an office. We've just had a quick chat about what we need, and Zil's on the phone with the agent right now.

She's considerably more rattled than I am... but then, I haven't gotten around to panicking yet.

So you have three months. Sounds about right.

And yeah, having just chosen to *not* move out of my place, partially on the basis of never wanting to house hunt ever again, I think you're wise to go with the agency thing. What does that involve, if I may ask?

Well, themusesbitch used this guy to find her place about a year ago, and gave us the guy's number. From what I can tell, you talk to the guy on the phone, tell him what you're looking for. He finds some places, and you go look at them. Depending on the place he finds you, you give him money. $150 for an apartment, $300 if it's a loft. Which is pretty reasonable considering the alternative expenditure of time.

We're staying in Toronto, near the core; something on the subway lines, with the option of parking, and laundry in-building.
