A Great Location for an Apartment

While I wanted a nice place to live at, location was the most important feature of any potential apartment or house for me. I had been hoping to get settled into a small house somewhere, but it did not take long for me to realize that this particular desire was not going to be easy to achieve in the area I was interested in. However, there are plenty of apartments for rent in Manassas VA, so I decided to focus my time on looking at these apartment complexes instead of trying to find a small house that is reasonably rated.

There were quite a few complexes, so this did make my search easier.Read more

Relocating to the Charlotte Area for Work

Last week I found out that the company I work for is shutting down the office in Roanoke, VA. Everybody was given the choice of relocating to Charlotte, NC or Detroit, MI or taking an early retirement. Since I am nowhere close to retirement age I had to choose between the two cities. I’m not very fond of cold weather and snow so I chose to relocate to Charlotte. Since this move is going to take place very quickly I need to search for apartments in South Charlotte, NC. I only have two weeks to find and secure an apartment for me to live in.

Although this was a very stressful time, I tried to look at the positive side of it. The winter weather will be milder than it is in Roanoke. This is a big plus in my book.Read more

A Place for Me and My Dogs

I really did not think it would take me long to look at apartments in Brandon FL that were available a few months ago. There are a lot of nice places to live in town, but I had my eyes set on one in particular. I had seen the Overlook at Crosstown Walk apartments about a month prior to my online search. I had never stepped foot inside one of the apartments, but I could still a lot about the complex just from how nice it was outside. Everything was well maintained, and it just had a really clean and nice vibe about it.Read more

Moving to Get Away from Family Troubles is Not Always a Bad Thing

We moved to get away from relatives. Wow, it is kind of cathartic to just say that out in the open. I do not think we are the first couple to do that. My husband’s family and mine have a long history of being quite controlling, extremely nosy and a little too free with their so-called advice that is more like do-it-or-else orders. When we got married we were living in a small apartment and began looking for apartments for rent in Mission Viejo CA about a thousand miles away from what used to be home.

We have been together since elementary school. First as friends, and then we started the official dating. He proposed to me when we were both 12, and he was serious. I was serious when I responded with a very happy yes.Read more

A Nice Three Bedroom Apartment for the Three of Us

I was looking for a nice place for my small family to live. There is just the three of us, which includes my husband, myself, and our ten year old son. I was going to look at two bedroom apartments for rent in Miami Beach, but I changed my mind after I saw a three bedroom unit that was available at Treasures on the Bay. That is a very appropriate name for the apartment complex, because it is right on the bay and it is absolutely a treasure for all three of us.

Our son has been to the beach hundreds of times and considers it his favorite place to be in the entire world.Read more

I Am the One Who Called the Shots This Year

My husband is someone who likes to call the shots for most things. I am pretty passive, so I usually let him do so without much fuss from me. But when it comes to vacations, he was controlling where we went each time a little too much. We mostly went to the places that he wanted to visit, so this year I put my foot down and told him that I was interested in luxury rentals in Vail for a change of pace. He whined a little at first, but I told him that he gets his way with most everything, and now it is my turn to call the shots about our vacation time. He continued to grumble, but he knew that it is only fair that things are more balanced.

I hoped that he would not complain the whole time we were visiting, but before we even left for the trip, I was pleased to see that he was getting pretty excited about it.Read more

Looking Forward to Living in the City

I needed to find Asheville NC apartments for rent after I recently received a promotion at work. I work in a high stress, long hours type industry, and this new job meant that I would need to be near work in order to respond faster if some sort of crisis goes down. The thing about my line of work is that there is a crisis at least once a week. The guy who held my new position before me ended up leaving because the stress got to be too much. Hopefully that won’t happen to me.

The one thing that would help is living much closer to my workplace. I live outside the city now and it takes a good twenty minutes to drive into the city, park, and get into the building.Read more

We Love Living at the District

I needed to look only at Colton apartments that allowed dogs. I have two labs who mean the world to me, and there was no way I could ever move into a complex that did not allow dogs to live there too. They are only two years old, so they are quite playful and they just bring so much joy into my life. I take them to a doggy day care when I am at work, and they absolutely love it there. That is why I needed to find a home for all three of us rather than just for me.

I did a search for pet friendly apartments and I was so happy when I found there are quite a few.Read more

Finding an Affordable Yet Luxurious Apartment

When my husband suggested that we look at some Charlotte NC luxury apartments when we were looking for a new place to live, I almost said no because I thought the price would be too high for the two of us. I gave it a second thought before saying anything though, and then I realized that the worst that could happen is that we would have to go back to looking at something a little less classy. I am so glad that he suggested this because I knew as soon as I looked at the prices that this was something we would definitely be able to afford.

I don’t know why I thought it would be not be affordable, because high prices means that no one would live there. We both have good jobs, and I knew that we would be able to swing the rental payments every month as well as the other costs associated with renting an apartment.Read more

One of the Best Kept Secrets

Looking for apartments for rent in Colorado Springs is one of the best things I could have done with my life. I work for myself online and can basically live anywhere, which is why I didn’t understand why I was still living in Denver after all these years. I think most of us get used to staying in one place and don’t want to take a chance with a new area where we will have to make new friends and get used to new surroundings. But I feel I have to leave the city because it’s just getting so hard to get around.

A friend of mine moved to Colorado Springs a few years ago and when I told her about my plans nothing would do but that I had to drive down and pay her a visit so that she could convince me that I should move to her town. I was open to the idea and it wasn’t too long of a drive. I have been in Colorado Springs before, and knew it was nice, but I wasn’t all that familiar with each area of town. My friend remedied that by giving me a whirlwind tour.

I started looking for a place right away! This is a great town and sort of a hidden secret. It’s also a lot safer than Denver. My friend and I looked at a few places and I looked at more online when I went back to Denver. I soon located a place that looked perfect for me and went back down to check it out. They have amenities you wouldn’t believe and it’s in a safe area of the city. I can’t wait to move in, and I’m looking forward to checking out all the cool sights and sounds around town. It’s going to be a great experience!
