As some of you may know (and some of you may not) I am leaving Winnipeg and heading to Ottawa in a month. My girlfriend got into grad school there, so we’re heading there at the end of August.
Why does this matter? Why am I blogging about this?
This is a plea for a very huge favour from those of you from the Ottawa area. You see, we have been searching for apartments for over a month now, and either have been disappointed with our findings, or have not been on time with our application (since we can never be there in person after a viewing). But we have been limited to internet finds - all of those niche places who have no need to post online have been under our radar. I can only assume that Ottawa is like Winnipeg where the good finds just don’t make it online. We’re starting to run out of time, and don’t especially feel like living in the ghetto.
So, if you can help us find something, we will be forever grateful and shower you with gifts (or just take you out to dinner, whichever).
Here is a list of what we are looking for:
Location: Central. Tiff is going to Carleton U, so Glebe and north into Central Ottawa is prime and we want it! Basically the area between Bronson and Elgin from the north to the river. She’s planning on busing it to school every day.
2 bedrooms (or one bedroom with den) Parking (1 spot, small car) and Laundry on site, Decent Kitchen, decent square footage (nothing under 700). We’d love a balcony or patio, or some sort of back porch/yard on which to drink/enjoy beer, but we can definitely do without it.
Price? Technically we are looking in the 1200-1400 range, but we can go as high as 1550 with utils and parking included.
If you can help us out we promise to return the favour. (Did I mention that Tiff makes fresh bread?)
