Looking For Apartments

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! 


  1. I can't wait till I am at the apartment hunting stage. I still have at least one full year left before I get serious about it but I get excited just at the thought.

    Seems you have been really busy and having fun and learning all the while. That's great.

  2. I live with my parents but I am always looking on kijiji at aparmtments for rent and ads for roomates! I feel like its good to have an idea of whats out there and how much it costs. Its also just a fun thing to do to pass the time.

  3. I love looking through homes on mls.ca - that's how I found the house I bought in PEI, so I totally understand your hobby!

  4. I love looking at apartments but I hate the actual thought of moving all of my junk. Can't wait to see what apartment you guys decide on. :) Good luck.
