So, my wife and I are from Delaware, and wanting a change of pace, we decided to move into the MiL's empty house in Texas, for no rent! And she's giving us a car! Amazing!
We get there and she's still living there, and the car is broken. And she wants rent. Whatever. We pay rent (it's cheap), and I pay to fix the car. Four months later she moves out, finally. Then she loses her job, moves back in, and unfortunately our relationship has soured (with the MiL, wife and I are still good).
We're trying to get out ASAP. Thing is, neither of us have ever rented an apartment, and I've never bought a car. I've looked at a few places that are budgetable, going to looking around tomorrow. What should I be looking for, and what should I know before going in? This is in Texas, Houston area.
Also, I've never bought a car either. That's a big one, too.
