In considering an apartment, I’m paying close attention to how easy my life will become once I move there. I’m not just talking about amenities like the appliances that come with an apartment. I’m talking about the day-to-day activities that will become easier to living there. For example, one of the apartments I am considering has a really great resident website. They allow their residents to log on and take care of everything they need from that portal. It eliminates the need to write a formal letter to the manager, or even to walk down to the office in order to make a request. (more…)
The click here ads have been getting better at capturing my attention. Normally I would just browse past them and go on about my way, but recently they’ve started using certain short videos and songs that make me want to listen and see what they’re advertising. The most recent one that I clicked on was for an apartment complex in Las Vegas. This apartment complex was a little different form the average one, in that it had more of a luxury focus in its design. Everything was made to look upscale and as good as a mansion or some other high end home.
I had been thinking about getting an apartment, but I wasn’t really shopping around for one yet, mostly due to procrastination. Once I saw the apartment ad, I clicked it and that began to change. I started thinking more and more about the apartment I had seen and wanted to move into it. I shopped around for a little bit to see if I could find some other apartment that would be similar but with a better price, but the one from the ad had the best price that I was able to find in my area.
I finally decided that this was the place for me to live, so I called the apartment manager and made arrangements to sign a lease. I picked a nice apartment on the third floor as my new home. I prefer to live at least three floors up because I think that people on the bottom floor will hear the most noise from foot traffic and sounds from the street. Then the people on the second floor will hear a little bit of that, along with noises from the people living right below them. Sure it takes longer for me to get to my room, but I don’t mind.
I wanted to find a large one bedroom apartment. Even though it is just me, I still wanted a lot of space. I have lived in studio apartments ever since I graduated from college, and I was frankly getting sick of such a tiny living space. I would click here and there every time I thought I might find something better, but nothing ever came of those searches. That is why it was not a hardship for me when I found out that my boss wanted me to relocate to Tallahassee. Even though it was over 100 miles away, was so ready for this fresh start.
I knew that I would probably have better luck finding something more to my taste since Tallahassee is so much bigger than where I was moving from. (more…)
When my brother told me he wanted to show me a website, I honestly had no idea what to expect because he can be the world’s biggest practical joker at times. This just happened to not be one of those times. Instead of something shocking, it was actually a really nice apartment complex. I asked him what it was about, and he thought that it would be perfect for me. He knew that I had been thinking about moving out of our parents’ home for a while, but I had not taken any steps to do it.
I honestly don’t know why I kept putting it off, but I knew that there was no going back after looking at that website. There were just so many nice things about it, and I had my first taste of independence. (more…)
I woke up the other day in a lot of pain. The last time I had a toothache, I think I was probably in high school. I used to visit a dentist regularly, but this was something that had just fallen by the wayside for me in the last few years. I take really good care of my teeth, but I guess not good enough. Otherwise, I would have already had a regular dentist in Denver since I had been living here for nearly two years. I wasn’t really concerned with any of that at the time though.
I just wanted to find a dentist that could see me that morning. There is no pain in the world like a toothache, at least to me. I am sure women will say labor pains are worse, but I am talking from a man’s perspective. (more…)
I have been looking at apartments all week, and I really wish that I could afford the place that I went to see this morning. It is called the Lyric and the place is really nice, as you can easily see if you check out their website. I loved the place, especially what they call the community amenities. They have a terrific swimming pool, they describe it as resort style pool. That just means that it is really nice. There were lots of girls when I checked the place out today and obviously that is how you really judge a swimming pool. They also have a fitness center. (more…)
When we wanted to move to a new place in the Las Vegas area we looked and looked for an apartment that would take dogs of all sizes. Pretty much every new place was on the bandwagon of accepting pets and providing dog parks, but they had limits on the weight for dogs they would accept. My wife found the Bloom Apartments that do not have any size restrictions on dogs. This would be perfect for us as we have two highly trained Mastiffs that are well over 100 pounds each.
They are clean, trained and not noisy. Now, on the other hand, my mom has a small dog that is kind of temperamental, doesn’t listen half the time and is always barking. New neighbors where we were moving from do not even know we have dogs until they see us out with them. That’s why I never understood size restrictions for dogs in apartments. However, I guess it falls back on the owners and how they train their pets. (more…)
I wanted to look at the community website for the Rodgers Forge apartment because I knew that was where I would get the most comprehensive information for the area that I wanted to move to. I also wanted to see the floor plans for the various units so I could make the right decision. I used to make hasty decisions, thinking that those were the ones that saw the most results, but I have since learned that taking time to make sure each decision is the right one is actually what works best for me.
That is why I wanted to look at the website in detail, as well as the various floor plans, so I could make sure that I was making the best choice for my family. I have two young daughters who live with their mother, but I get to see them on the weekends. (more…)
We were making our new budget, and the rent increase was not sustainable. We needed to move a little further outside of the urban area to get a lower lease rate. I had no idea how much less you could pay and how much more you could get out of an apartment by just getting out of those apartment buildings in the city. We were looking at apartments in far North Dallas, and we found a place that had bigger rooms and even a private balcony in a place where we could afford the monthly lease.
I could not believe how much less we could pay and get more. This place had a pool and everything. We were able to get a two bedroom place for less than we were paying at our old apartment. We toured the place, and everything was up to our specifications. We liked the location, the landscaping is mature, the apartment has good AC and ceiling fans and there were big closets. The kitchen is nice with new appliances, and there are washer and dryer hookups too. (more…)
Moving has never been easy for me. I get used to a place, and I will stick around even if it is not a nice place to live. We lived in an old apartment building that had seen better days. We had no idea that the amount we were paying for our lease was enough to rent a much nicer apartment somewhere else. We discovered this when we started looking for the best apartments in Forestville to rent. We actually found a gated access apartment complex at the Parkland Village Apartments that did not cost any more than what we were already paying for rent.
The apartment we got is bigger, newer, cleaner and has everything we want. There is a playground for our child, and now she has her own room. Back where we were at, she was using the dining room as her room. She is so excited to now have her own bedroom with a door instead of a curtain. (more…)
I live by myself, but I still wanted to look at 2 bedroom apartments in Shawnee KS. There are just too many reasons why a two bedroom apartment is a good investment for a single person. Some can use it for a guest room, while others may turn it into a home office. For me, it was to serve a different purpose. I love to do craft projects so much that I wanted a room just for all of my craft things. When I saw the two bedroom units at Shawnee Station, I knew that it would be perfect for what I wanted. (more…)
I was struggling for awhile about whether I wanted to live in a home or an apartment. However, over time, I realized that living in an apartment would be much easier. Then, by coincidence, I received an email from a local apartment complex advertising their property. So I clicked the click here link in the email to follow through and check out what they were offering. I liked the place right away. In fact, I figured if they would rent to me, there was no sense wasting my time looking anywhere else. I don’t have a lot of extra time to do things in a slow, drawn out manner.
I’m having a tour of the place, I decided that I would be making the right decision to live there. (more…)
