Man, oh man, do I need to get out of my place. New environment needed, soon.
While I’d like to buy in the neighborhood, current prices are scary. So, I’ve recently (today) started sniffin’ out high rise leases. Maybe a one year lease while I watch the local market.
There’s obvious upside over my current situation: modern living, as in dishwasher, working kitchen, security, guaranteed parking etc.
Everything I’m considering is new construction.
There’s also the obvious consideration of whether rent payments v. home equity payments is a decent trade off.
But what I’d really like to know is, what’s it like to live in a high rise? It’s a relatively new situation in Houston. I just don’t know anybody well who has done it.
The good? The bad?
