Little known fact about me, I love looking at apartments and real estate websites. I am not alone here, I mentioned this to one of my friends while out for coffee and she does the exact same!
Anyway, I was looking at apartments the other day at D's house and showed him one that is in town. He said he liked it and wants us to check it out. He said he would be up for moving in there if I was.
We also started talking about me teaching overseas and him finding a job in the same community I would be located in. He seems really up for the idea and mentioned that it might be good to live together here before we move overseas together.
So today I am working a split shift at the restaurant and once I know my schedule I am going to call the apartment he thinks is best as well as a couple others that I like (that are actually less expensive). The one he likes is IN TOWN, like main street downtown. It's $840 plus utilities a month for two bedrooms. I was thinking if we get that one we might even be able to find a roommate to rent with us for $300 a month to save some money. Another one I saw was $775 plus utilities for a one bedroom. This one LOOKS really nice in the pictures, open concept, bright, balcony, and somewhat more modern. This ons is walking distance to downtown. However the funny thing about this apartment is that it's in the SAME building as my brother and his girlfriend. The third one I think I will call about today is $650 plus utilities for a one bedroom, walking distance to town. This one doesn't have any pictures though but I know it's in a low-rise apartment complex. So we will see! I'm excited to call and check some places out.
Maybe nothing will come of it, but it's still fun to check out!
