Ok I am wanting to move back to my home town but its almost impossible to find a bedsit and its mainly all flat shares or flats about £360-£400 a month not including bills.
I have eventually found 3 possible properties, 1 doesnt interest me much but may be the easiest place to rent, it is in the part of town which is old fashioned and locals arent very nice to non locals(my ex used to live around corner) it overlooks the river and a small museum in a tiny victorian house, rent is £370.
Property 2 is directly in town centre, a 1 bedroom flat and across road from the best take away and baguette shop and across road from main bus stop which I can get to my parents and the best club in town. So in effect I am paying a premium for the area of town. £380 a month.
Property 3 is an actual HOUSE! with the same landlord as property 2 and around the corner from the home where I grew up from when I was 2-6 years old and made lasting friends and also around the corner from the main museum in town where I can go when bored, also dont know if a good or bad point is it has a VERY steep hill up so great for exercise. £380 per month.
I am thinking more of property 3 but havent seen any yet so may change mind or LL may not like me or accept students.
The house sounds the most tempting but it would make me feel "old" but the flat would be nice but worried about loud tenants or it may be small or I may get bored etc.
Plus the house depending on size may be expensive to heat and maintain but I am not sure council tax bands either, I know I am a student now but after I graduate not sure if flat will be more expensive being in the main part of town or the house being a house and all.
