New House?

Nicole and I are toying with the idea of renting a different house. We've struggled with whether to rent again or to try and jump in to buy a foreclosure with all the craziness going on. Anyways, the house we're looking at is in Canyon Crest, 1377 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. It's almost 300 more square feet than we have right now and the rent is about $100 less.

Pros:
It's a nice neighborhood with a great shopping center nearby and a brand new park going in close too.
It's a quick shot into downtown Riverside.

Cons:
I currently have about a 5 minute commute. It would probably increase to 10-15 minutes without traffic and 20-30 minutes with traffic.
It has really dark green carpet. Nicole's seen it; I haven't. We'll see if we could live with that.
We could no longer walk to the Plaza from our house.

    Hi Mike.

    My name is Adam McIntyre. You don't know me but ask your wife. She used to be in my choir 100 years ago. I randomly found your blog through one of your CBU students (Rachel W) and added you to my reader.

    There's always downtown Riverside too. It's a great place to live.
