I announced here that we are moving to Florida in just a few days.
I can tell you that searching for a place to live from over a thousand miles away is kind of stressful.
This next house, like the one we've been in here in Minneapolis, is just a rental so we didn't have to make any big commitments.
But it still had to look good enough to be able to live with for a little while, and the stressful thing about a rental is that unlike a house you own, you can't change much about it if you hate someone else's finishing choices. But luckily after some searching, we found a house that fits all our requirements and has nice, neutral finishes that won't clash with our stuff.
Since we are 1600 miles away and didn't have the time for a house hunting trip down in Florida before making the move, we had to just find a house to rent from online, and just go by the pictures and description to see if it would work for us. Luckily though my sister doesn't live too far away from where we are going so once we found the house we liked she took a trip to it and walked through with a camera to make sure there wasn't anything scary about it.
Thank goodness there were no red flags with this one. It's kind of weird to be moving to a house I've never even been to before, but with all the pictures my sister sent I feel like I know pretty well what it looks like.
Here are a few of the pictures she sent us:

The house is a little under 2000 sf and has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Since I haven't been there yet I haven't got a really clear picture of where I'll be putting everything, but I'm really excited to get started!
