My partner and I just moved because we bought a house a little north of Seattle. Quarantine for 3 months in our small Seattle apartment just wasn't cutting it-- we wanted more space and more projects. Plus interest rates were incredibly attractive, making it more affordable than we thought. We've also been very fortunate to both keep our jobs and easily transition to wfh for the forseeable future (and probably beyond that). 6 months ago we were in total agreement that we didn't want a house, what with all the upkeep and projects and potential for things to go wrong. After a few months of being together non-stop in a 3rd floor walk up, we changed our tune pretty drastically and decided that was exactly what we wanted in this fresh hell of a pandemic.
