"Cool Back Artery Into Downtown Moraga"

I am currently preparing for a change of situation, so I have been looking for possible solutions to my situation. Basically I need an affordable place where I can have my kids around. At first I thought the only possibility would be to have a house with at least 3 bedrooms, but that would simply not work for me on my limited finances.

What does the rent on a 3-bedroom home run in Lamorinda (that is Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda for those of you who are not familiar with that geographical designation). A 3-bedroom plus house in Orinda, however, starts at $3200. (Most are more along the lines $6500.) So that quickly becomes out of the question.

So here I am looking at apartments. Specifically at a couple of apartments here on Rheem Blvd. right by the movie theater. There is a 2-bedroom here for $1300--right at about my limit probably; and a studio for $700.

The two bedroom is on the first floor which is nice because with kids you want to avoid driving people crazy. This area is also nice because it is right by downtown Moraga, which has all the conveniences you might want including supermarkets, a good park, a 24-hour coin operated laundry (though this building I understand has its own laundry) and of course the already mentioned movie theater.

I assume that this is the kind of place where St. Mary’s students would normally live and that is why there are so many apartments here in Moraga. I have never really thought of Moraga as kind of a cool place for singles or students to live, but under reconsideration, I can see how this might actually be kind of a nice place to live if you were a student at Saint Mary’s or someone in my current situation.

I will definitely have to keep this place in mind when considering possible places to live as I search for a new home.
