An Apartment of Her Very Own

Posted in Uncategorized on July 29th, 2017

I was looking at a website for a local event, and I came across an ad that said to click here. There was a gorgeous picture associated with it, so I clicked it to see what it was an advertisement for. It took me to the website for the City Park View website, which is an apartment complex in the downtown area. I wasn’t even in the market for an apartment, as I have a nice home already. It did make me think of my daughter though. She has been living with the same roommate for nearly two years, and she told me not long ago she is ready to strike out on her own.

I knew she would be happy with everything that City Park View has. Read the rest of this entry »


We Finally Have an Apartment That Feels Like Home

Posted in Uncategorized on July 26th, 2017

We started looking for a new apartment to live in a few months before we actually moved. My wife and I were talking about the lease renewal on our old place coming up and how we did not want to be locked into another year there. We were asking about staying on a month by month basis, but the landlord said it was an annual lease or nothing. Well, that was his loss and our gain as we found a great place when we looked for new apartments in North San Antonio, Texas. What got me interested at the website for Woodbridge apartments was the hookups for a full size washer and dryer. I knew it would be a few months before we could afford a set, but just being able to have them inside the apartment was a huge selling point for me. I cannot tell you how much I despised laundromats and laundry rooms. Read the rest of this entry »


Great Location for Those with Children

Posted in Uncategorized on July 22nd, 2017

My husband and I looked into Tampa Florida apartments recently because we were both unsatisfied with the local school our children attended. We have twins and they both recently started kindergarten and right from the start we locked heads with the teacher and the administrators running the school. We had some issues with the curriculum and the school wasn’t responsive to our requests. I thought about homeschooling the kids, but as of right now we need to have two incomes in order to get by. That meant we needed to find a new place to live near a private school.

We picked out the school we wanted our kids to attend, and the school actually wanted them to attend, but that left us with a very long commute across town to get them there. That meant we needed to find an apartment nearby. Neither of us had a problem with moving, and our parents were willing to help us out if the rent was a bit higher than what we currently paid. So we went online and looked at every apartment complex within a ten mile radius of the school. We soon found exactly what we were looking for in an apartment.

Not only is the complex near the school, it’s also near a lot of other important places such as restaurants, shopping areas, and even a big park. When we went in for a visit, both of us were a bit in awe of the place. It’s obvious that the management take great care of the facility. It’s also obvious the people living there are a step up from the people we’re used to interacting with on a daily basis. I had my mother come over and take a look with us and she enthusiastically encouraged us to sign a rental contract. We can’t wait to start living here!


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 »
