Our apartment

We made the decision to find an apartment before we get to Israel, since our lift may get to there before we do, and pass up the absorption housing. We are on a E-mail list in Ariel that sends us Emails about different apartments that are available. The plan was that my lovely sister in law would be our agent and she was went to Ariel to look at some places.

We were told about one apartment that was in a nice location, price was perfect and the picture we saw looked OK, but it's tough to tell from pictures. For various reasons that apartment fell through. For the past few weeks Avi, our Ariel contact, has been telling us about a 3 bedroom apartment that is in the neighborhood we want, but the price was a bit high. When the cheaper apartment fell through, amazingly the price of the nice apartment dropped. At the same time a house came onto the market at a great price. but not in the right neighborhood, probably a 20 minute to the community that we want to live in. Not a terrible walk, but still kind of annoying.

Thanks to a lot of work by my sister-in-law and Avi it seems like we have an apartment in the neighborhood we want for a price we can afford.

For those who are wondering we have less then 3 weeks before we leave.
