After 5 years of renting our current house, we are being forced to move. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, I’m just finding that there are few houses in the right price range and area. My daughter really doesn’t want to change schools again so we’re trying our best to stay within driving distance and close to my mother.
From speaking to friends that are also currently house hunting I’ve head the market is fairly cut throat. To help us get a property I’m going to be writing an introduction letter, and offer two month rent in advance. I’m hoping that by offering the extra money we can secure a place faster. Is offering to pay extra rent morally acceptable? I’m just hoping the increase in rent wont put to much strain on our budget.
