We Let the Kids Pick the Apartment We Would Move to in Minnesota

I put in for a transfer to one of our corporate facilities that was offering more vertical opportunities and was in need of a technical expert like myself. The first move was more of a lateral position, but it paid quite a bit more than my present job. I was hesitant when the company made me an offer, but when they said they would pay moving expenses, my wife and I agreed I should accept it. The kids did not want to move, so we asked what kind of place would make them want to. They showed us the www.cedarsedina.com website for the Cedars at Edina apartments in Minnesota telling us they would move if that was where they could live.

The swimming and the fact that the place was pet-friendly were the top two things on their list. The very top was us being able to bring Clarence, our cat, along with us. She, yes Clarence is a she and super friendly. Continue reading

Great Place to Live for This Contract Worker

I had to look into apartments near ballantyne in Charlotte NC due to accepting a one year contract to do some information technology work for a local company. They offered some assistance in finding a place to live, but also offered to pay for the rent. The latter, I felt, meant a lot more than having your living quarters assigned to you. It meant I could look around and pick a really nice place to live, something that would match my lifestyle and also be located close to work, restaurants, and other entertainment options. I thought it would be easy to find a place.

It was actually more difficult than I thought it would be. There are many great living arrangements in the city, and surprisingly more than a few were fairly close to the area I needed to live in. Continue reading

Perfect Lodgings for This College Student

My parents encouraged me to look into luxury apartments in Mission Viejo seeing as how I was set to attend Saddleback College in a few months. I could have stayed home and lived with them, but my father thought it would be a good idea for me to get out on my own so I would get used to taking care of a household. It’s actually a pretty sound idea, and one most of my friends aren’t engaging in. They’re still trapped at home living in the same room they grew up in as children. That’s not going to happen to me.

The problem, as I saw it, was the word luxury. Luxury apartment living sounds expensive, and frankly impossible on the money I make with my part time job. My hours are likely to decrease once school starts too because I’ll be taking a full course load and will need to devote more time to studying. Fortunately, my parents offered to make up any difference in the rent. With that problem out of the way, we started looking for apartments. Continue reading

She is Happy Here with Us

My husband was married for nearly ten years before he got a divorce. The two have a young daughter who is now 14 years old. When her father and I were first married, she had a real hard time adjusting to the fact that her father had a new wife. We definitely had our growing pains as a family, but I love that girl with all of my heart. When we started looking at luxury apartments in Asheville NC, I wanted to make sure that his daughter felt like this was her home too even though she would only be with us periodically through the year since her mother has full custody.

The apartment that I found at The District is absolutely perfect for our small family. Because I want her to feel welcome but also be able to maintain her privacy, I really like that her bedroom is on one end of the apartment while ours is at the other end. Continue reading

My First Apartment is Great

When I first started thinking about looking at apartments in Oceanside, I had mixed feelings. On the one hand, I was pretty excited because it was going to be my first apartment as well as the first time I had ever been on my own. That is why I had the mixed feelings, because that is also pretty scary, knowing that the security net is still going to be there but just further away now. The excitement was the prevalent emotion though, especially when I put the deposit down on the apartment that I was approved for.

It is a ground floor apartment, and it has everything that I need. By that, I mean that it has a large bedroom, the largest walk in closet I have ever seen, and a really nice kitchen. There is even a room off the kitchen that has a washer and dryer, which makes me really happy. Continue reading

I Turned the Den into a Home Office

I was conflicted on whether I wanted to get a two bedroom apartment or just try to make do with a one bedroom unit. I had been looking at different apartments for rent in Colton CA, and I found a few really nice ones but I just was not sure that a one bedroom would suffice for me. That problem was rectified when I found a one bedroom apartment with a den at The District at Grande Terrace. I had not seen any of the other apartment complexes offer a den with their units, and it was just the right size for me.

I don’t technically work from home, but I do bring a lot of work home with me. Continue reading
