It Isn't Just About the $

We not only found a nice academic family from New Zealand to rent our home, but we also found a flat in Paris for our sabbatical. The New Zealanders will be doing fellowships here, at Harvard mostly. I had a lot of interest (and a few strange requests/demands...) but the NZ family just seemed to understand the house, and needed the good schools etc. I even lowered the rent for them, as the NZ dollar is in even worse shape than ours (sadly, the Euro is just fine). I am sure you hear this a lot, but I would much rather have people with whom I feel comfortable in my home than get more money from someone with whom I do not. So, even though we are renting for 25% (or even 30% ) less than it costs us to own it, it is worth it. Anyway, thank you for your great service. I am glad to see that you are getting lots of listings. I remember that I looked at your site for our last sabbatical, but there were far fewer listings. That was years ago, though. I will continue to recommend the site, and, of course, will list with SabbaticalHomes.com again if the need arises.
