We are moving & we will be renting a place for the first year or so. The rental market in our new location is so expensive! So what we are looking at within our budget is:

- A condo with about 1600-1700 sq ft, garage, very small private yard, and neighbors attached on both sides
- A single family home with about 1300-1400 sq ft, garage, a larger private yard (but not big by any means), and not attached to neighbors

Both options would be 3 bed / 2.5 bath.

We have a 90 lb dog so we need some kind of yard. I am not crazy about being in a condo after the privacy of a single family home for the past few years. But we also have about 1800 sq ft where we live now and I am a little nervous about downsizing.

What would you do?
