Desperately needing a 2 bedroom to rent in town. Long-term renters with great references. Our place was sold and the new owners want to renovate immediately, so we need to be out by April 30th. We are 2 single females in our 30s, each with a small pet, 1 cat and 1 dog. Need something close to town as neither of us have a vehicle. We currently pay $895 per month, but are willing to pay a little more for the convenience of staying in town. A 1 bedroom with loft would be another option as well. Thank you.
