I stopped by to look at some apartments for rent in Newport News VA last month, and it made me really hopeful about my upcoming living sistuation. My husband had told me that he was leaving me for my best friend, which floored me and scared me. I have never lived alone. I went straight from living with my parents and siblings to living in my husband’s home when he and I married. I did not know if I could handle getting a place of my own when I have two small children to look after. I know that I can ask for child support, but there is no guarantee that it would be enough to cover enough help for my kids. I had so much to think about.
First, I had no idea how much renting anything at all would cost me. I looked into renting a home, but then I realized that seemed like far too much trouble. Continue reading “I Wanted to Make Sure I Could Handle a Place of My Own”
I checked into 1 bedroom apartments in Florissant MO due to the fact that I recently accepted a position with the St. Louis police department. Why did I look into living in a suburban area if I was going to work in the city? Because St. Louis is a very strange city in that it’s actually quite small. It’s surrounded by areas like where I’m going to live and most of the people who work in the city live in a suburb. The city can’t expand due to various restrictive laws. What you’re left with is areas either too expensive or too poor to live in.
Being a police officer means I’m not about to live in the ghetto areas of East St. Louis, especially in the current climate. That’s why I looked at a complex in Florissant. It’s not an expensive area to live in and it’s within easy commuting distance to my job. Continue reading “Nice Apartment Living Outside the City”

It was a shame to have to look for uptown apartments in Dallas seeing as how I am born and bred California all the way through, but I can’t live here anymore. It’s expensive, for one thing, and the politics of the state are getting pretty crazy. I think when I started hearing them talk about banning plastic bags at the supermarket that it was time to leave. The problem was where to go and still make a good living. I picked Dallas mainly because it’s in Texas and their economy is booming. It’s the best economy in the country as far as I can tell.
But I had to make sure I lined up a place to live along with a job. The job turned out to be easy, so I hoped living quarters would be just as easy. I got online and did some searching and found a great place in uptown Dallas that looks like a dream. Continue reading “California Transplant Finds a New Home”
I have been out of school for a couple of weeks now and I lucked into a decent job already. It is not precisely what I am looking for, but I need to have some cash flow right now. It is not going to stop me from looking for a better fit either. At any rate right now I am on the hunt for apartments in Santa Fe NM, and really hoping that somehow I can find a good roommate. That would be a huge help to me, especially in the short term. The problem is that you do not want to just move in with some random person, who could be mentally unstable or just a jerk who would leaving you holding the bag when the rent comes due.

I love that most all the apartments in Jacksonville have had steady prices that remain affordable, while that isn’t happening in some other cities across the US. I work at a semi-small company where there is very little chance to advance very quickly. And the CEO of the company has a pattern of often not raising pay each year, even a small amount. The good news is that there is a manager who will be retiring soon, and I really want his position when he leaves. And the CEO has told me that he would really like me to apply for that position when the time comes. Continue reading “Sticking with My Job Brought About a Great Opportunity for Me”
I knew I had to start looking at 2 bedroom apartments for Goodlettsville TN, but I honestly did not know where to start. I was just feeling very overwhelmed, knowing I had to take care of a hundred different things in a very short time period. At the top of the list though was finding a place to live since my landlord had told me that he was selling the house I was renting from him. I had hoped to be able to rent from the new owner, but I quickly found out that was not an option.
I had no idea how I was going to find a two bedroom apartment when there are so many complexes to check. That is when my friend told me to slow down and stop panicking. She told me I could go online and get all of the information that I needed without having to step a foot at any of the complexes.

As someone who helps other people find apartments for rent in Daytona Beach FL on a daily basis for work, I knew that I would be able find a new place for me to live quite easily. I know all the best places to live that are inexpensive. I even know the best places that are located by the beach, and because of my job, I am often given a heads up by the places that have units to rent as soon as they become available so that I can tell my own customers. But I was on the lookout for a place for myself, so I was waiting to hear from one of the apartment complexes that I love the most before I made my move.
Considering that I have been inside most of the places that are here for rent, I would not even have to really spend time touring any places. Continue reading “The Place I Found to Rent is Great and I Found It Quickly”
One thing that was making me frustrated in my search of apartments in Deland FL was all of the community amenities that so many of them offer. I think it is great that so many have swimming pools, fitness centers, social areas and more, but I also knew that was why so many of them were as expensive as they are. You are not going to live in a place with so many community amenities without chipping in to pay for all of that. However, if a person does not use any of them, then it is irritating to have to pay so much when you are not using the things you are paying for.
I was hoping to find an apartment that did not offer any of those amenities. I do not swim, and I don’t work out in front of others. I don’t need a playground or pet park because I don’t have kids or dogs. Continue reading “A Simple but Nice Place to Live”
