Itís beginning to look like it will be too expensive for me to move. I saw a house I liked, though it had flaws, and the owners wanted nearly $4,000 in move-in costs: first and last monthís rent, security deposit, and a staggering $500 deposit to cover any possible damage my two cats might cause. I canít imagine how they would even begin to cause hundreds of dollars worth of damage. Does anyone ask for a child deposit? Theyíre far more destructive than cats. It would have taken every penny I had, plus a loan from my boss. Forget it.
