Why this?

Why does duolingo only accept this?

Mi casa está entre esas dos casas.

I chose "mi casa es.." because I think that a houses' position doesn't change, i.e. it is something permanent.

Estar is used for emotion, location and condition. In this case it is used to state the location of the house.

If I were you I would use quedar (to remain). Donde queda la casa? Where is the house?...so...Mi casa queda entre esas dos casas.

My phrase for remembering when to use "estar" is "position, condition, location," with condition meaning a temporary state of being. Everything other use is "ser."
