Don’t Rush into Your First Mortgage

Posted in Uncategorized on July 20th, 2017

I found out I was approved for the house of my dreams, but when I sat down and looked at the mortgage payments and how much I earned, I realized that my lifestyle would change a lot. I started to look for apartments in Far North Dallas because I wanted to make sure that I had a backup in case I did not want to move into the house I was in love with. I also realized that with an acre of property I was going to have to pay someone to maintain it for me because I did not have the time or the care to take care of a lawn.

Finding an Apartment Where I Can Make Friends

Posted in Uncategorized on July 13th, 2017

My colleague has been really great about helping me find a new apartment. She’s lived in the area for several years now, so she had a lot of insight that I don’t have as a newcomer to the area. She’s been helping me search for apartments in Atlantic Station Atlanta GA. this area is located close to work, and it’s really close to major freeways, so getting around town should be really easy. Where I live now, I have to drive 20 minutes just to get to the freeway, which I really don’t like. It’s really important that my new home is close enough to the freeway, so that I don’t have to worry about the extra commute time. Read the rest of this entry »


We Took a Step Up in Living when We Found Some Buckhead Luxury Apartments

Posted in Uncategorized on July 10th, 2017

You can learn a lot about an apartment complex by how the common areas for the residents look. Plus, I can pick up on some things based on how the tour goes. An enthusiastic tour where the tour guide is really proud to show off things is a giveaway. We were online searching for Buckhead luxury apartments when the Overton Rise Apartments showed up in the results. I had not ever noticed it when we were out in the area, so I wanted to take a closer look. The grounds in the pictures looked great. The common areas looked brand new. I wondered what the inside of an available apartment would look like, so we scheduled a tour of the apartment complex.

We liked what we saw from the moment we drove up out front. The landscaping and the buildings looked great. This is a big giveaway as to what you can expect inside. If the outside looks shoddy, the inside of the apartments will be worse. This place was well groomed and very contemporary in its look. I was prepared to take a big whiff of the air when the tour guide opened the apartment door. Read the rest of this entry »


I Got Lucky in Life when It Came to Work and Happiness

Posted in Uncategorized on July 4th, 2017

I had been working at a clothing store for about 3 years when the manager pulled me aside one day and told me that she was leaving, and she was promoting me to her management position. I was elated! After I had been in the position for awhile, I knew that I should be looking into the apartments near Cumberland Mall where I worked to make my commute easier. I had been living about a 30-minute drive away from work, and it was never fun to lose an hour a day commuting back and forth. I found the perfect place, and I have been here for three years now.

I never thought that I would even be a manager at the store that I’ve been working at for so long. I originally just worked there to help put myself through school. Read the rest of this entry »
