Is it worth the extra money to move in? Help!

The lease on our apartment ends in July and we have by May 12th to make a decision to move or not. It'd be more expensive to live where we are if we renew the lease (price went up and it's an extra $50/month for parking) so we are looking elsewhere

My co-worker is moving into a new house and has offered her 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo for $900/month and electric would be roughly $100/month. It's in a great neighborhood with other young families, it's less than what we are paying now, and my SO's parents are literally a walk down the road. The only cons with the place are the extra bedroom (which I can turn into an art studio or a guest room) and driving to work (parking where I live is a real bitch), which are small in comparison to the pros.

The worst thing, however: We would have to move in June 1st, a month before our lease ends, meaning we would have to pay the $900 to move in, $930 to cover June and $465 to cover the remainder of the lease. In total, it'd be $2295 to move into this place, excluding the utilities. I'm not sure if it would be worth it or not.

What do you all think?

They're also doing renovation on the building and will be done by the time I move in.

It's almost a half-month that I'd be paying to finish July.

 If the benefits out weigh the cons then I'd do it, it will save you money in the long run. Nicer neighborhood, extra bedroom.. I'd do it.
