This is Better Than a Rental House

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

I always thought that I wanted to rent a house or a duplex because of the yard that would most certainly come with it. I know there are some places that have tiny yards, and I was even okay with that. I just wanted to be able to plant flowers and enjoy the view. I didn’t realize that I could have that and more with an apartment. I ended up doing a search for apartments near 28217 Charlotte NC when I was not able to find the right house to rent.

There were plenty of rental properties, but there was always something wrong with them. The neighborhood was too bad, the rent was too high, the rent was too low so I knew there would be problems, the landlord was just too eager to get me into one of them, and the list goes on and on. I needed a place to live though, so I bit the bullet and looked at apartment complexes. (more…)

Apartments Have Drastically Changed in the Last Decade or So

Monday, July 24th, 2017

The apartments of today are definitely not like the ones that even our parents had when they were our age and just starting out. Then, most complexes had a swimming pool and maybe assigned parking, but even those were not guaranteed. It is almost impossible to find a new complex that does not have a swimming pool, a fitness center and at least a few more amenities for residents. That is why I was able to be a bit choosy when I looked at apartments for rent in Temple Terrace FL.

I knew that the apartment complexes there had to be just like the ones in New York that I was leaving behind. (more…)

I Moved So I Can Have a Dog

Monday, July 24th, 2017

I was heartbroken when my landlord told me that I could not have a dog. I never thought to ask before because it wasn’t relevant to me at the time. I thought there was a possibility I might get a dog in the future, but I thought it would be okay since the last tenants had several dogs. When he told me no, I decided to move. I wanted a dog that much! I went to my computer and typed in ‘apartments for rent for 78230‘ so I could see which apartments in the area allow dogs.

I wanted more than just a place where I could bring a pup with me though. If I was going to move, I wanted to move up, not sideways or even down. The house I had been renting was an old farmhouse, so it was not very modern in any of the living areas. I wanted to make sure the apartment I was going to move into was a lot nicer than what I had been used to the past several years. After looking at quite a few apartments, I finally decided to contact Woodbridge Apartments to arrange a tour. (more…)

How I Found My Perfect Apartment

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

I moved into my new apartment about a month ago. It was one of the best decisions I ever made, because I’m so happy here. I thought that I would take a moment to reflect on how I got to this point, as well as some of the things that I enjoy about my new apartment home. When I began looking for apartments in far North Dallas, I didn’t think that I would find a place is perfect if this. I started searching online because it felt like the most natural way to begin any type of search. I knew what I was looking for in an apartment, and I felt like I was really focused while I was going through the process. I found several apartments that I thought would be a good match, and I schedule appointments to go down in person to tour the property.

The first property I visited just wasn’t a good fit for me. The apartment was as large as it looked online, and I couldn’t figure out how would fit all of my furniture inside. The second-place I visited is actually where I ended up moving. (more…)

Searching for an Apartment with My Mom

Monday, July 10th, 2017

I’m from Atlanta, and I’ve been thinking about moving back to the area for at least a year now. I have been living in Texas for the past five years, mostly because this is where my job is located. I have an opportunity to start a brand-new job in my hometown, and I’m really considering it. I called my mom to tell her that I was looking for apartments in 30318. That’s all I had to say, and she got really excited. She knew that meant that I was considering moving back home. I asked her if she would help me look for a place to live, and she immediately encouraged me to move back home. I thanked her for her offer, but I told her that I’ve been living alone for so long that I really want my own place. (more…)
