I Will Be Moving to the State That I’ve Wanted to Live in for Many Years

I’ve always wanted to live in the southern portion of our country. I had wanted to move there right after college but was unable to secure a job there right away. Instead, a place out in California hired me so that is the direction I went 10 years ago. But now, as I find myself looking at Manassas VA apartments for rent I feel much happier. The western portion of the country was not for me. I am someone who lives a relaxed, laid back and maybe even a slower life. I enjoy eating food that is tasty and I have no interest in counting calories. I like super friendly people. All of these things are found in the state where I am now moving to.

As someone who has been brought up in the midwest, live was okay there. It was a bit boring. Read More »

Finding a Luxury Apartment That Had Everything on Our Must-Have Lists

We had a huge list of things we wanted in our next apartment. For example, when we were looking for South Charlotte apartments, I wanted to be close to the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. I have to fly all the time on business, and a short commute to the airport would be very welcome. I was driving over an hour now. Also, we wanted a nice kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and we were absolutely in need of a Bark Park for our dog. He is an energetic Jack Russel terrier that can become a Jack Russel terror if not exercised every day. There has to be an outlet for all of his energy.

I wanted a private patio. Read More »

A Three Bedroom and Four Bathroom Apartment

My mom joked with me several years ago that when my father retires, they are selling their house and traveling around to visit us three kids. I live in Georgia, my sister lives in California, and our brother lives in Michigan. I knew they would have a lot of fun traveling, even if it meant they would stay with each of us for three to four months long. When I looked at apartments near Tucker GA not long ago, I kept that thought in my head because it seemed like something they were really going to do since they told my brother and sister the same thing.

My brother and sister definitely had the space at the time, but I did not. That is one of the reasons why I wanted to get a bigger apartment. I did not want the responsibility that comes with being a homeowner, and living in an apartment is just fine for my husband and myself along with our 10 year old son. Read More »

Staring a New Life in Brandon, FL

I am in my final semester in college and have been offered an internship in Tampa. Since I have lived in Ohio my entire life this is going to be a huge change for me and I’m a little apprehensive about it. But I must move forward. The company I’m going to work for told me about some new apartments in Brandon FL that are in a safe neighborhood. I’m going to look into this as soon as possible. I don’t want to wait until the last minute to find a place to live and want everything set up before I graduate.

One evening I sat down with my laptop and researched the apartment community in Brandon. Much to my surprise, there was a lot of information and pictures of these new apartments. My number one concern is safety. This was immediately put at ease when I read that it is a gated community with 24-hour controlled access. I was pleased with all of the community amenities available such as a pool, a fitness room, recycling area and grilling areas just to name a few. Read More »

My Friends Picked My New Apartment for Me

I let my friends pick where I was going to live. I invited everyone to a party at my old place using formal invitations that I actually mailed to them. I don’t think these Internet junkies have ever gotten anything in the mail other than bills and ads. The premise was to go online and look for apartments near Ballantyne in Charlotte NC, and then pick the best place for us all to tour. They looked at a bunch of apartment websites, and then they all voted and settled that I would be moving to the District South apartments as soon as we all did a site tour and it met their approval.

They talked about me having big rooms with high ceilings so that we could all have space when they visited me. They said they needed parking too, because they were tired of walking almost a block from where they had to park to get to my old apartment. Plus, they said the place had to have a big swimming pool for their entertainment. Keep in mind that there were only four friends deciding for me. They are my friends. Read More »

I Need a Place in Mission Viejo

I got here about two weeks ago as I decided that I needed some time to get set up before school started. Of course there are not nearly as many students here during the summer semester and that means that there are a lot of luxury apartments for Mission Viejo near the campus. My intention was to find a place that was really close, so that I would be able to walk or ride my bike all of the time. I got to looking for a job as well and I think that I have a pretty good one which is going to be pretty close to perfect. Right after I got here I went past this really nice restaurant and they were in the process of putting up a help wanted sign. Read More »

My Parents Moved to Asheville Too

My brother moved to Asheville nearly eight years ago after he and his wife were married. My other brother followed nearly three years later because of a job offer. I came here two years ago because of my own marriage to an Asheville native. Now, our parents are looking to move here because they want to be close to all three of their children. Since they are now retired, they have the luxury of of looking at different apartments in Asheville to find the one that is the best fit for them, and then just moving here.

My two brothers have their own opinions on where our folks should live, but they were both retirement communities. Granted, our parents are in their 60s, but they are not anywhere close to needing a retirement community just yet. Read More »

I Have a Nice Home for Myself

I am not really that picky when it comes to where I live. I don’t want to live in a rundown apartment in a bad section of town, but I certainly wasn’t looking at luxury apartments in Oceanside CA either. That is why I was surprised that I ended up with exactly that, because I am as far removed from luxury as a person can be. Still, I am able to afford to live at Capella at Ranch Del Oro, and I really liked everything that it has to offer to someone like me. The main thing I like about it is how much storage is available there.

I have a lot of things. I am an avid reader and have hundreds of books, and I love to do different kinds of art projects, so I have a lot of craft materials too. That is the main reason I wanted a two bedroom unit, and I knew that I would still end up needing to get rid of some things. Read More »

I Know How to Save Money for My Future Without Any Trouble

I have always felt it’s a good idea to save money when it’s possible. There are some things that I don’t scrimp on, though. When I was ready to look at apartments for rent in Colton recently, I made sure that I found a really nice place. I wanted it to be a newer place, and I wanted it to have some luxury amenities. I knew that taking my time would mean that I could find something really nice and at a good monthly price. When it comes to other things outside of my living space, I am a bit tight with money. It is definitely nice to be able to have money to save every month because I handle things this way.

I knew when apartment hunting that I wanted a place that would have a gym, a clubhouse, and a pool. I like to work out and I am a big fan of giving dinner parties, too. Read More »
