Apartment Viewed

Last night D and I looked at an apartment. It's a nice place. It's the lower level of a backsplit so it has nice full, big windows. It has a parking spot, and access to a backyard. We could have a little patio set and bbq. The kitchen and living room are open concept, but small. No dishwasher, laundry, and it only has a single sink. The bedroom is small but doable. The bathroom is quite large and has a full bath. It has a gas fireplace. It's $800 plus hydro. Hydro would be quite minimal because it's heated by gas.

It's a full year lease. I don't like there being no laundry, and only a single sink. I keep comparing places to my brother who has 2 floors, HUGE living room and kitchen, 2 bedrooms, laundry and dishwasher included. He pays $900 plus.

I also compare it to a place I saw online that has been rented out. It was $775 plus utilities. But had a nice big kitchen and living room. It had one bedroom, a balcony, and laundry included.

I just don't want to sign a lease if we aren't going to love the place. I know D would sign a lease if I wanted him to with me but he is hesitant on a few things as well. For now we will continue to look. I really like the place but it's missing a few things I would really like to have. So for now we will keep looking.


  1. I believe you made the right decision to keep looking especially since it is a full year's lease.

    You will find the right one soon.

  2. A year can be a long time if things are not how you want them to be.

  3. I have a web site where I give advise on penny stocks and stocks under five dollars. I have many years of experience with these type of stocks. If their is anyone that is interested in these type of stocks you can check out my web site by just clicking my name. I would like to comment. I do not think that we will see real improvement in the economy until we see sustainable job growth. Recently the number of jobs created has been running around two hundred thousand a month.The GDP report that just came out recently was only 2% this is not nearly high enough to sustain employment growth of two hundred thousand jobs a month Another factor holding things back is stagnation of wages and benifits. This is good for business owners but terrible news for workers. As far as the value of a college degree goes I believe that the value of a undergraduate degree has been lessening now its the masters and PHD that is becoming the norm. I believe that much of this excessive education is a bad thing we are creating a class structure based on degrees' education is not a bad thing its needed in many cases but this madness with more and bigger degrees is not a good thing.
