I spent the last two days looking at nine different properties–six of which would have required DD to switch elementary schools. They were in the middle school boundaries but not the elementary. I was glad I looked at those rental houses even though a few were at the same rent I’m paying now. I wasn’t moved enough by the houses to take my daughter out of her school. I also looked at a three bedroom apartment that would keep the kids in their schools but the complex was old, rundown and had some unsavory characters. The surroundings just didn’t pass my gut check.
So I ended up back at the first apartment complex I found. I drove by at different hours to check things out. The parking situation looks good with a huge parking lot in relation to the building. I looked at the trash receptacles to make sure they weren’t a mess. I even got out and checked for dog poo! Crazy lady! Lol. I did all of this before looking at an actual apartment interior bc I wanted that $350 look and lease! It’s gated but I snuck in! You all motivated me to investigate.
I finally looked at an interior late yesterday. I love it! The apartments are only 3 years old and on a road with very little around it. The traffic flow is good. The bedrooms are generous sized. Overall it is a fit. I applied today and even negotiated a single car garage for free that I am permitted to use for storage. We move in on March 30. Let the decluttering begin!!!
