Apartment-Hunting

I love this apartment.

One of the perks of moving around as often as we have is that I get to look at real estate.  This is a photo of an apartment in Auckland, in the Auckland City or City Centre area.  I have no doubts that it will be snapped up long before we get there, but I like to look and get an idea of what rents are like and what your money can get you in different neighborhoods.

We aren’t planning on buying a home in New Zealand.  Instead, we’d like to get an apartment or townhouse within walking distance to one or both of our jobs.  Chris will be working at the university, and I’m hoping to find employment at a nearby hospital.  This puts us in the center of Auckland.  I’m okay with living in the middle of a city, but I would like a large rooftop terrace or balcony, such as the one above.  So long as I can have an indoor-outdoor living space, I’m okay with no yard.  This is another one that I like, although to a lesser extent…

The huge window-for-a-wall is fabulous, but the view isn’t quite as great.  It’s got a nice kitchen, though…

And then there are places with views like this one…

Or terraces like this one…

Yes, I’m really looking forward to our move.  Only 68 more days!
