I hate the term real estate. It's cold and business-y, everything that tends to make me hide under the bed. What I write about is space: homes, cafes, places where you can do work, pet the cat, and Google your next-door-neighbor from 10 years ago. I write about places. And I like to do it from a personal perspective.

Welcome, we're renter-friendly

My old stomping grounds is reporting that Ann Arbor, Mich., and Charleston, S.C., are among the most "renter-friendly" cities in the nation. The article cites an online survey at ApartmentRatings.com that, among other findings, pinpoints several college towns as renter-friendly. These include Athens, Ga.; Davis, Calif; as well as Ann Arbor, home of the mega-huge University of Michigan.

No surprise that only one California city made the list. Still, I don't know that there'll be a mass exodus of lease-signers to College Station any time soon ... but I've been wrong before.
