A Brand New Apartment is the Thing You Want if You Cannot Stand the Thought of Previous Tenant Smells or Dirt

We come up from the Roanoke area to take jobs in DC. We still lived wanted to stay in Virginia as we looked for apartments for rent in Manassas Park VA instead of in DC. We wanted a place really close to the VRE that would make it easy to commute to work. We found the Palisades at Manassas Park apartments that are just a short walk from the train station. The big plus that beats them all is that this place is new. It is not renovated or just nice, it is a new apartment complex. Do you know how cool it is to get a new apartment that is actually brand new?

Hey, we have lived in places that were freshly painted with new carpets and we could still smell the previous tenants. We like places that are pet-friendly, but we are dog people and can smell cat smell really strong when one had lived there before. I remember a place we used to live where the previous tenant had a daughter who kept the litter box for her cat in a closet in her bedroom. The place was cleaned thoroughly, but we could still smell the cat. Continue reading A Brand New Apartment is the Thing You Want if You Cannot Stand the Thought of Previous Tenant Smells or Dirt

Relocating After a Tragic House Fire

Last weekend my house burned down due to an electrical problem. Thankfully, I wasn’t home at the time and was not hurt. But I am absolutely devastated at the loss of my home. After talking to the insurance company I was a little hopeful as they were going to help me pay for an apartment until I receive the insurance settlement. I started searching the internet and came across a website of an apartment community that really caught my eye. It was pet-friendly and looked like a very safe place to live.

I was astonished at all of the community amenities that were provided to the residents. I am very health conscious and was excited to see that it was within walking distance of the farmer’s market and that it also had an on site fitness center. I know I would spend a lot of time there working out. Continue reading Relocating After a Tragic House Fire

An Apartment That Feels Like Home to Me

I was looking at the Overlook at Crosstown Walk website because I had driven past it not too long ago. I liked how it appeared just from the street, plus I saw that they had some available apartments. I figured it could not hurt to look to see if I would be able to afford an apartment there. I also liked that I could click here and there on the website and see different aspects of living there. I was able to see floor plans, more about the neighborhood, the amenities in the different apartments, and the features that anyone who lives there can use.

I really liked everything I saw, including the price. Continue reading An Apartment That Feels Like Home to Me

Two Families Creating Memories in Colorado

My husband asked me if I would find a nice place in Colorado for a ski getaway. When I asked him if it was just for the four of us, which includes the two of us and our twin teen daughters, he asked how I would feel if our best friends and their four children tagged along. I thought it was a great idea. I knew we would need five bedrooms, and that is how I found myself looking at Beaver Creek luxury rentals with that many bedrooms. It did not take me long to find the perfect place with the Snowflake Penthouse. Continue reading Two Families Creating Memories in Colorado

I Helped This Girl Move

It was a favor that I was doing to this girl I knew, of course it was not a coincidence that she was both very attractive and very unattached. This is the website of the place she moved to. She had broken up with this guy after a couple of years, although it was the sort of thing everyone else had seen to be inevitable. At any rate she needed to get new apartment and she needed to move. I had a couple of things that made it obvious that she would ask me, a pick up truck and a trailer. When I got done I needed a chiropractor. Continue reading I Helped This Girl Move
