Viewing my first suite in Vancouver tomorrow

It’s 2:00am and I can’t sleep … BF is picking me up from the ferries tomorrow afternoon at around 2:30pm, and then he’s coming with me to go check out a place I found on Craigslist.

This place seems like a pretty good deal – $500/month (all utilities included) for a 2-bedroom basement suite … which is way, WAY under budget for rent. It’s kind of unbelievable, actually.

The guy who owns the house, he occupies one of the bedrooms, but he lives up north, and only comes back down to Vancouver with his wife about once a month for a few nights … so I would practically have the place all to myself. AND, the entire place is fully furnished (except for my bedroom), so I wouldn’t have to buy anything except a bed frame (and also a dresser, since I forgot the one I have is completely shot to hell). It seems like an ideal situation, and the guy seemed really nice on the phone, so hopefully the place isn’t a dive, and the surrounding area isn’t completely shady.

The guy is heading back out of town tomorrow evening, and he would ideally want to have a deal done by the time he leaves … so if everything checks out, I could have a place as early as tomorrow!
