Deciding if/when to move
Obviously, being able to afford the rent is a major deciding factor when making the decision to move. But is it the only one? I am trying to decide whether or not to try and move into a 2 br from my current 1 br. I do have a toddler, but we could technically live here for a couple more years before HAVING to move. What factors do you consider when deciding to move into an apartment that's a bit more expensive? My current apartment is $615, the 2 br would be $695. I could afford it, but I just don't want that to be the reason I jump up and move. The new apartment would be with the same property management company, and they would allow me to do it if I decided to.
