I Like to Live in Places That Suit My Needs Best

30 August 2017 by admin

I began my search for apartments for rent in South Charlotte NC just two weeks ago and found a place within only 24 hours of starting that search. I can remember 35 years ago how I needed to travel to each place individually, and it was something that typically needed to be done only on the weekends when I had time off of work. It would sometimes take 2 or 3 weekends to carry out, but it is not like that anymore. Now, you can literally find a new apartment in only hours if you start your search online.

I can be rather picky about the places that I live. Continue Reading →

We Decided to Move to Florida

30 August 2017 by admin

I knew that when I moved to Florida, my youngest daughter was going to want to go with me. I had not planned on moving there until I retired, but an incredible job opportunity came up. I knew that I would rather spend the last ten years of my working life doing something I loved than where I had been, so I made a very easy decision to move. I went online to look at apartments, and I found one that said to click here for two bedroom floor plans, so I did.

Even though my daughter is out of school, she was still living with me. Continue Reading →

I Took the Time to Think About What is Important to My Life

24 August 2017 by admin

It occurred to me that I needed to be closer to my family. When it came time to apply for colleges many years ago, I applied to schools that were many states away because I wanted to see more in life. But life has been tough and I realized that I need my family, just as much as they need me. I found myself looking at apartments for rent in Tucker GA often because I wanted to come home again. I decided to talk to my mom about it because I was a little conflicted due to the job that I had.

I worked hard to get to where I was with the company that I got hired at right out of college. I wanted to make something of myself and make sure that I didn’t have to struggle with money often since I was on my own. I accomplished that, but then I found out that I had a chronic illness. It really made me slow down a bit and think more about what is really important to me in life. Continue Reading →

Luxury Apartment Living in the DC Area

21 August 2017 by admin

Our new apartment in Washington DC suits my wife, kids and me. Our daughter has asthma, so the fact that Westbrooke Place uses zero VOC paint was a real help. We repainted her room at our old place once with paint that emitted volatile organic compounds, and she had asthma troubles ramp up exponentially. Our other daughter is an activist for ecologically-friendly things all of us can do to make things better and more sustainable. When she found out that each floor of the apartment building has a recycling center, she was all for moving there. The fact that they use recyclable carpeting and padding along with energy-efficient lighting was right up her alley.

Me? Well, I must admit that the lap pool being indoors and heated was a big draw. My wife was impressed with the fitness center. Continue Reading →

I Got a Great Job Offer My Boss Recently

21 August 2017 by admin

My work partner and I were called into a meeting with our boss last week, and we were both asked if we would like to work out of our satellite office in Florida. Considering that we work and live in very cold Minnesota, we were both very ecstatic and said that we would love to. My boss said that they are willing to give each of us our own unity at Treasures on the Bay Apartments and pay for everything for a year. They said they felt this would help offset any other costs that we will need to incur. This sounded fantastic. The thought of being able to live where a heavy coat and lots of heavy clothing for long winters is something that I have wanted for more years than I can remember.

I did not grow up in Minnesota. I went there because I wanted to become a journalist, and the first place that hired me happened to be there. I never got used to the very long Winters. Continue Reading →

Our New Apartment is a Far Cry from Barracks in the Desert

15 August 2017 by admin

I have put my time in living in everything from barracks to tents. It is one thing to go camping and sleep under the stars for a couple of days on a vacation, and a whole other thing when you have to do it. Now that I am in a new line of work, I really wanted a nice place to live. I wanted us and the kids to have space and new things. We found the District South apartments. You can click here to see how nice they are. Halfway around the world I lived in modular structures that were slapped together quickly. It was super hot or really cold depending on if you were in the mountains on a clear night or in the valley on a hot day. If you have ever seen a camel spider, you know what I’m talking about.

Anyway, our new apartment has all the things we would associate with fine living. There is ceramic in the bathroom along with a big walk-in shower. Continue Reading →

I Just Got to Asheville

15 August 2017 by admin

I was looking around for a new place to live and I found this really awesome place, but unfortunately it had a really big rent too. If you click here you can check it out. For a single bedroom unit the cost was about twelve hundred and fifty dollars per month. However it was only a hundred dollars more for a two bedroom unit and so I started to wonder how hard it would be to find a decent roommate. Obviously you do not want to just find some random guy who may or may not do what you need him to do. Instead you need a person with a good job who is going to keep his good job. Continue Reading →

Nice Apartment and Decent Neighbors Was All We Wanted in a Place to Live

15 August 2017 by admin

We wanted a clean and affordable place to live. Some place where we actually liked our neighbors rather than being annoyed by them constantly. If you have ever lived in an apartment, you know what I mean. You make a lot of allowances for noise and rudeness because you do not want to be “that neighbor.” We needed to move because of a couple of families that moved to our floor. They were so noisy we could not even sleep. When I found Summer Grove Apartments, we had to take a look. You can see them if you click here to go to their website.

Summer Grove is a place that is within our rent budget, and it is nice. Plus, their pet policy allows us to have our dog. We needed to stay in Colorado Springs to be close to work. Neither of us wanted a long commute. Our new apartment at Summer Grove puts us within minutes of where we work. We have a nice space. Our furniture fits perfectly, and we are really comfortable.

We Were Meant to Be Roommates

14 August 2017 by admin

My friend sent me an email that said to click here for website of the apartment complex she had been telling me about. It is not far from where either of us work, and she thought it would be really nice if we both shared an apartment there. We had been talking about how expensive it was to live on our own, and we had tinkered around with the idea of moving into an apartment as roommates. We get along really well so I knew that we would not have any problems living together. It also helps that we have complete opposite work schedules so we wouldn’t be spending all of our free time together. Continue Reading →

California Beach Living is Awesome

14 August 2017 by admin

Click here if you are looking for your dream home. Well that was what I did and boy am glad I did. I think it is a dream of many people to live close to the ocean, but most of us can’t afford to purchase a house there, so finding a luxury apartment is the next best thing. Well at least it was for me and my husband. My husband works in the IT industry and his job was going to be moving him out to California, so it was going to be my job to find the perfect apartment. We didn’t want to purchase a house, because the housing market is so expensive in California. My husband would be so busy with his work, that he would not have much time to look around for a new place.

At first I thought I would just drive around and look for places, but that did not work at all. Continue Reading →

We Found a Place Where We Can Be Active Close to Home

11 August 2017 by admin

I came from a state where a lot of people spend a lot of time outside. I loved being able to walk outside and immediately many people jogging, biking, skating or doing something else outside. When my husband told me that we were moving due to his job, I was worried that the new town we were moving to would not have such active people. But we ended up getting a place at http://www.liveatparkwaysquare.com/ where there are a lot of physically active people at that complex and even throughout the city. I don’t even miss the city that we were living in before because I love where we are living now.

I’ve been pretty active since I was a child. I grew up in a home where my parents made stir to help me and my siblings learn just how important it is to get some exercise in all throughout the week. They took us on a lot of family outing often. Continue Reading →

Finally Got an Apartment That is Clean with New Appliances and is Pet-Friendly to Boot!

09 August 2017 by admin

We definitely needed to rent a new apartment, and it had to be a place that was nice, new and pet-friendly. We saw plenty of places that were really nice and clean with all new stuff, but they would not take pets. Then we found places that would take pets, but they were not nice places to live. Then we discovered Tally Square, you can click here to see just how great this place is. Clean apartments with new stuff. The appliances looked brand new. If there was someone living here before us, they must have had a pro cleaning crew come in. It looked to us like it had just been renovated. It looked great and did not smell like anything. That is a good sign. If you smell cleaners or air fresheners, run! The place should not smell like anything at all. You know it is clean then.

We did not find any grime behind the stove. We pulled it out to see as we looked high and low for stuff that would need a good scrubbing before we moved in. Continue Reading →

I Am Almost Living Like a King

09 August 2017 by admin

Of course it is not exactly what I was looking for when I started out, but it worked out pretty well since two other people at my job were looking for a third person to share the rent. The place is called the Palms at Peccole Ranch apartment homes and it is a really awesome place with modern apartments in Las Vegas, NV. I moved out here about three weeks ago and I got a great job working at this really expensive restaurant. I mean this is the sort of place where an ordinary person would hardly ever see the interior of. However a lot of the time it is like a once in a lifetime thing, however most of the time you are talking about really rich people who are out on vacation. Continue Reading →
