I spent some time looking for lease in Northern Nevada.
(1) 2 bedroom. One for my bed, one for my office and hobbies. View of something pleasant better than something unpleasant.
(1.5) Rooms should be spacious.
(2) Prefer a Viking stove and a Sub Zero refrigerator.
(3) Separate shower and soaking tub.
(4) No maintenance.
(5) Tight security
They showed me a 5 bedroom house in the suburbs that backs up to a green field (golf course), with cheap appliances and suggested that I buy, not lease, because leasing is a waste of money.
I said, "I'm living by myself - and I travel at least 50% of the time. You think that I want to live by myself in a 5 bedroom house with only two furnished rooms because I have no need to visit other rooms? They said, "What if friends come over?"
